We are a large exporter of palo santo products: Sticks, inciences, oil and handicrafts. Our main goal is the sustantability of the specie. We are working directly reforestation projects with communities in the north coast of Peru.
A species from the Burserácea family, it grows in the tropical forests of South America. Palo santo is a protected species and is collected during winter in the tropics, from June to January.
To obtain essential oil with steam distillation, the tree should die naturally and dry for a minimum of four years. A study was recently carried out, where a tree was cut and left to dry the same amount of time. The result didn't produce any essence. The wood and resin produces the oil.
Essential palo santo oil is obtained without cutting trees. The dead wood is only processed when it dies naturally, when found in forests. The tree grows for 40 years, dies and then after 10 additional years it is processed.
Palo Santo essence is calming and transmits energy. The oil is used in aromatherapy and messages. For natives, the spirit of Palo Santo is in this essential oil, responsible for its potency and curative qualities.
