What is Palo Santo?
Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a sacred tree and grows in select parts of South America. Translated from Spanish, Palo Santo means Wood of the Saints or Sacred Wood. It has been used for many centuries by shamans in ritual prayer, ceremonies and healing. Like its close botanical cousins, Frankincense and Myrrh, it is rich in brain-oxygenating terpenes such as limonene and a-terpineol which give the Palo its uplifting and positive qualities.
The Palo Santo Tree
Only the fallen trees and branches can be collected and must be allowed to dry and cure for a period of 3 to 5 years.
Third Eye Wood’s Palo Santo is imported from Peru where the collection of Palo Santo wood is a practice regulated by the Peruvian government, like the government worker in this picture ensuring sustainable harvest. The collection method respects the sacredness of the wood and allows for the continued life of the tree. Live trees are never cut. Only the fallen trees and branches can be collected and must be allowed to dry and cure for a period of 3-5 years. During this time, a chemical transformation takes place and the sap, once fluid in the living tree, begins to crystallize and form deposits giving the Palo Santo its prized grains of orange and gold. Within these rich resin deposits, the essence of the Palo is the deepest.
