Palo Santo (Holy Wood) Bursera graveolens (2375 – 5ml)

Palo Santo is from the same family as Frankincense. The oil has an aroma which is buttery, oily, but with a fascinating lemon-minty top note. The bark from the Palo Santo tree is traditionally burned in South America for the purpose of clearing negative energies from living spaces. The oil can be used in prayer, energy work, etc, where it is symbolic of rebirth. Fascinatingly it contains limonene, the compound that gives citrus oils their lemony freshness. Extraordinary for an oil that has comes from the heartwood of a tree. Enjoy it’s digestive, neuroskeletal, and respiratory effects, as well as the benefits it brings to the skin.
