Palo Santo Oil (Pure High Grade) 1/3 oz (10ml). Holy Wood. Cleanse/Bless. Soul Retrieval. Peru Shaman's Wood, Sacred Land Sage
Our own pure, High Grade Palo Santo Essential Oil (100% Bersera graveolens), for cleansing and purifying. Palo Santo is Holy wood used for centuries by the Inca to clear away old and unwelcome energies, and invite blessings and goodness to home and heart.
"Palo Santo para limpiar tu casa de la mala energia, Palo Santo para la buena suerte."
I source from 2 suppliers, and usually know my wood source which enables us to source the highest grade woods (see photos of the logs with dark inner bark ). This Palo Santo wood grows in a protected forest of Coastal Peru where it is harvested sustainably under strict regulations.
Once here in California, I work with a local steam distiller who makes small batches, to ensure freshness. I then bottle it in sterilized amber glass bottles. (Store yours in a cool, dark place, and it will last a very long time!)
*The natural scent of Palo Santo carries hints of so many wood and spice scents! To me it is a forest of hard woods mixed with vanilla, Anise, cinnamon, neroli, myrrh, and mint. Depending on the grade of the wood, and how long the logs have remained on the ground- will determine what mix of those spice scents dominate. This particular batch is higher in oil content than others, is strongly concentrated, and to me, smells of forest woods mixed with mint-myrhh-citrus.
**Shamans advise keeping a deep respect for this Spirit Guide by using it in small amounts with pure intentions~ Palo Santo is considered a powerful ally in meditation, magic ritual, journeying, and soul retrieval.
*Palo Santo is in the same family as sister woods Myrrh and Frankincense, and grows throughout South America, Mexico, and Central America. Named "Holy Wood", for its long and ancient history of ceremonial use by native Shamans, Curanderos, Apu spirits, and Healers~ across the Americas.
Many find Palo Santo's scent calming and healing; it brings a light, soothing energy to home and heart. I find it energizing.
