Our organically crafted Palo Santo Hydrosol is steam distilled from the aged heartwood of the ethically wildcrafted Bursera graveolens tree, growing wild in the mountains of Ecuador. Also called Holy Wood or Saint Wood, Palo Santo is from the botanical family Burseraceae making it a relative of Frankincense, Myrrh, Elemi and other incense aroma producing trees. This sacred tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy.

The smoke of Palo Santo wood is traditionally used in spiritual rituals to clear negativity from a person or space, very similar to the use of White Sage in smudging practices. Palo Santo has an ancient ethno-botanical history and has long been worshiped by indigenous cultures for its purifying and healing powers. The wood holds a significant place in the shamanic practices of the region.


The calming and grounding properties of Palo Santo make it ideal for enhancing meditation, chanting or to make spiritual connections. In addition to its popular use for ceremonies and meditation purposes, Palo Santo Hydrosol is also excellent for encouraging healthy lung function, especially when dealing with minor coughs, congestion, or asthma. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic qualities make it a good remedy for headaches and migraines as well alleviating pain from tight muscles and restricted joints.

Palo Santo Hydrosol is also used for its skin nourishing properties, as well as to help ease unwanted muscle spasms. Palo Santo is also an excellent repellent for mosquitoes and other insects.

Emotionally and energetically, Palo Santo Hydrosol centers and encourages focus. It is often used to promote deeper meditation, provide emotional and physical protection, clear negative energy, and foster greater inner unity
