Palo Santo, or Holy Wood, Essential Oil by Young Living

Palo Santo – Young Living


In South America, Palo Santo is too revered and treasured for its innumerable healing uses that its name literally means holy wood. Its smoke is so powerful that it has become a staple in sacred rituals- and its fresh smelling aroma with hints of mint and citrus—make Palo Santo one of the most fragrant woods in the world. What is most fascinating about Palo Santo is that, UNLIKE other essential oils, the oils in a Palo Santo tree develop and mature only after the plant has died! The longer the tree has lain dead, the richer and more potent its oil. The oil is steam distilled form wood chips of wildcrafted trees in Ecuador.


This oil is said to have a purifying effect on the spiritual environment- it aids with emotional balancing and centering,  immune support, muscle support and as a nerve tonic.  Palo Santo has a wonderfully soothing aroma with a powerful energy, often said to increase spiritual awareness, to help the mind focus while simultaneously clearing away negative energy.
