Essential oils made without harming the Palo Santo tree. We only process wood that has been found to have died naturaly in the forest. Tree grows for about 40 years and then dies. Then, it has to lay down for about 10 more years before we can process it.
The Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) is an aromatic tree of the dry forest of Ecuador, which was used by shamans to cure many diseases, and for this reason the Spanish called it “Santo”.
Through a distillation process by vapor stream (no chemicals) is obtained an oil which is used for Aromatherapy Essential Oils AND MASSAGE.
