Originated in South America, Palo Santo comes from the Palo Santo tree that translates in Spanish as “holy wood”. This sacred tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy. The oil is distilled from the aged heartwood from the trunk of the Palo Santo tree that is rich in terpenes such as limonene and α-terpineol; making this a cousin to Frankincense and Myrrh. Due to its powerful chemical makeup, this essential oil is well known for its healing, calming, and cleansing capabilities.
Therapeutic benefits include:
- Excellent for meditation, it can help banish negative thoughts and be very grounding.
- Promotes a calming atmosphere and helps alleviate worry.
- Eases muscle and joint discomfort.
- Helps promote a healthy respiratory system while stimulating the immune system.
