It is known in Spanish as Palo Santo ("Holy wood"). PaloSanto  is a ecologically & sustainably harvested wood gathered on Ecuador's Pacific coast. This tree belongs to the same family (Burseraceae) as Frankincense & Myrrh. The use of Palo Santo is traditional in South America, especially in Ecuador. The Palo Santo or "sacred wood" tree from which the oil derives has an ancient ethnobotanical history and has long been worshiped by indigenous cultures for its purifying powers. According to the local customs, it is used by Shamans to diminish "mala energia" (bad energy).The wood is used for both Blessing & banishing.
           This tree grows in the forest for about 40 years & then dies. Then, it has to lie down for about 10 more years before it is processed. No harm was done to the Palo Santo trees in gathering this wood. 
       This treasured essence will uplift the Spirit and the emotions as it clears away negative aspects that may be in the surrounding energy field. Sacred smoky and grounding effects are calming and therefore excellent to create a vibrational field for meditation and  peaceful contemplation.
Inspire creativity and enhance inner peace through palm inhalation. This is an effective way to energize your consciousness. Place a drop of the essential oil into the palms of your hand and rub them together as you bring them up to allow the deep and effective qualities they offer into the olfactory system, while focusing on intention & then inhale deeply. Rubbing onto the soles of the feet is very calming and protective as well.gently rub the palms together,
