Palo Santo (Conservation Project)


Palo Santo trees have been seriously over-exploited in South America, especially in Ecuador. In many parts of the country where the trees once grew abundantly, the populations are now decimated, deforested for use as incense, medicine, fuel, or for making aromatic boxes. The preservation of the last remaining forests of this precious tree is critical, Palo Santo is endangered.

We buy our Palo Santo from a  conservation project in Ecuador.

Our Palo Santo, (Bursera Graveolens), comes from “Proyecto de Palo Santo” a reforestation project based in the dry forests near the Ecuadorian coastal town of Puerto Lopez. Only branches that have fallen naturally are used, as a result, no tree has been cut down. A percentage of each Palo Santo purchase goes directly to replanting (60,000 trees since the start of the project), as well as many worthwhile community causes.

In Spanish, Palo Santo means Holy Tree and has been used for centuries by shamans during ritual prayers, ceremonies, and healing. Its metaphysical properties of Palo Santo smoke clean negative energies and raise vibration during meditation preparations, allowing for a deeper connection to Source.

Just like its biological cousin Myrrh, Palo Santo is rich in brain oxygenating terpenes such as limonene and terpinol.
