Product Brochure:

Palo Santo Product Sheet

Originated in South America, Palo Santo comes from the Palo Santo tree that translates in Spanish as “holy wood.” This sacred tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy. The oil is distilled from the aged heartwood from the trunk of the Palo Santo tree that is rich in terpenes such as limonene and α-terpineol; making this a cousin to Frankincense and Myrrh. Due to its powerful chemical makeup, this essential oil is well known for its healing, calming, and cleansing capabilities.
Add 2 drops of Palo Santo, 2 drops of Lavender, and 1 drop of Mandarin to 1 tablespoon of bubble bath or body wash; mix into your bathwater to help relax and alleviate the lows from everyday worry. To help reduce tenderness, mix 2 drops of Palo Santo, 2 drops of Frankincense with 1 ounce of your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil and apply topically to the affected area. We recommend a maximum dilution of 3% for topical applications.

5.0 5  My favorite meditation oil

I use palo santo in a meditation blend. It lives up to its reputation for clearing away negative energy. It\'s really wonderful paired with cedarwood or other grounding oils such as sandalwood, vetiver, or myrrh.

5.0 5  Can't live without

This oil is so calming. It brings a sense of peace and wellbeing. The licorice smell softens and you\'re left with a citrusy earthy smell.

5.0 5  Best calming oil

My sister had a cancer scare. She was crying for three days straight, not sleeping or eating. And I didn\'t know what to do. I heard Palo Santo was good for getting rid of bad energy and calming...almost like a sage brush thing to cleanse. \n\nI put two drops on a cotton ball and placed it near where she was laying on the couch. She fell asleep in 10 minutes and woke up feeling better. \n\nAnytime I get very upset or see someone very upset, I will do the same and it definitely calms everything and everyone down.

5.0 5  A Truly Underrated Oil

Oh., Palo Santo. How I love thee! Such a unique aroma. I do pick up the black licorice hints that others have mentioned. But there are gorgeous notes of a spicy/woody nature that I pick up as well. It is like nothing I've ever smelled before. It is incredibly calming and grounding for me. A must have in my collection.

5.0 5  My Go-TO for sleep.

I first got it as an OOTM selection and it might be my favorite single. The scent reminds me very much of black licorice. The reason I love it so much is that I add a few drops of this with a few of Lavender in my diffuser and I sleep like a well-fed baby. It's one of those oils for me that I know definitely that it works.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
