Palo Santo, or Holy Wood, is believed to date back to the ancient Incas. Palo Santo oil comes from the Palo Santo tree in Ecuador where this sacred tree has been used for centuries due to its believed healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy. Palo Santo oil is distilled from the aged heartwood that is rich in terpenes such as limonene and alpha-terpineol. Many of our blenders notice similarities between Palo Santo, Frankincense, and Myrrh. Due to its powerful chemical makeup, this oil is well known in the industry and is a staple to have in stock. Palo Santo's unique clean, fresh, woody, slightly citrus aroma brings life to any finished product it's in.
