Additional reading

Palo Santo, also known as Holy Wood, originates in South America in the tropical dry forests of Ecuador, Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula in Peru. The oil itself is collected from only old dead wood that has died a natural death. It has a rich history that is traceable back to the time of the Incan Empire.


One of the most widely-known benefits of this oil is meditation. It believed to help banish negativity and promote a calm and peaceful atmosphere. This makes it a favorite for many who regularly practice meditation and yoga! Next time you stop to meditate and center yourself, don’t forget to use Palo Santo to help make it a positive, grounding experience.


In addition to being a grounding oil, Palo Santo can also help support the respiratory system. If your respiratory system is suffering or you’re dealing with seasonal allergy symptoms, try diffusing or using in a personal inhaler to bring relief.


The same reasons that make this oil good for meditation also make it good when you need a little bit of calm. By helping ward off negativity and alleviating worry, this oil can help get you to that calm state of mind so you can tackle whatever problems head your way.


The Palo Santo tree is rich in terpenes such as limonene and α-terpineol; making this a cousin to Frankincense and Myrrh. It’s these chemicals that make it such a powerful essential oil when it comes to helping ease discomfort and tenderness. Dilute to 3% in your favorite carrier oil and apply to swollen and tender areas.

Meditative Forest Master Blend

Combine these essential oils. Add 4-8 drops to a diffuser, dilute to 3% with a carrier oil and use topically for specific discomfort or dilute to 1% for an all over body massage.
