Palo Santo essential oil (Bursera graveolens) comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as frankincense, although it is found in South America rather than the Middle East. Like frankincense, palo santo is known as a spiritual oil, traditionally used by the Incas to purify and cleanse the spirit from negative energies. Even its Spanish name reflects how highly this oil is regarded: Palo santo means “holy wood” or “sacred wood.”
Gary Young, Young living’s founder, discovered Palo Santo in 2005 in Ecuador. Palo Santo means Holy Branch. Latino people – in Ecuador and Pero – use Palo Santo as the people in the East use Frankincense.
How to use:
For topical use, apply 1-2 drops on affected area. For aromatic use, inhale directly as needed or diffuse/humidify for 10-15 minutes daily. Keep in a cool, dark place.
Caution: Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician.
