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  A little musty but good!

I\'ve been wanting to try Palo Santo for some time. I finally got ordered some and it arrived yesterday. First thing this morning it went in the diffuser. It smells a little musty and a little woodsy to me and I\'m loving it. Very calming and lovely.

5.0 5  One of my top five favorites!

I adore Palo Santo. I know some complain about the mild (very mild) licorice scent, but to me it is beautiful and soothing. This oil helps me so much to feel calm, centered and relaxed. It\'s ability to help me deal with negativity in myself or my environment is amazing. One sniff and I am on my way to a calmer, more positive attitude. If you truly detest the scent of black licorice then this awesome oil probably isn\'t for you. But for those of us who like (or for those on the fence , who could still tolerate) the scent, this is one of the absolute best oils you could have in your stash!\n\nFor those who have this oil, try this blend: 2 drops palo Santo, 2 drops Pink Grapefruit and 1 drop Juniper Berry on a cotton ball. It will fill the room with a beautiful, positive scent that calms, soothes and centers you.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
