In Search of Authentic Palo Santo
Understanding the Power of Authentic Palo Santo
The journey to find authentic Palo Santo, or 'Holy Wood', is as captivating as the mystical tree itself. Used for centuries by indigenous cultures, Palo Santo's unique energetic and healing properties have cemented its status as a cornerstone of natural wellness.
The Birthplace of Quality Palo Santo:
Peru Authentic Palo Santo thrives in the tropical dry forests of South America, particularly in the forests of Peru. Here, the unique combination of soil, climate, and biodiversity results in Palo Santo that is remarkably potent and boasts a rich, complex aroma.
The Harvesting Process:
Respect for Nature’s Rhythms Unlike other trees, the most potent Palo Santo comes from naturally fallen trees that have lived a full life. Particularly, fallen female trees, renowned for their superior quality resin, are collected and left to rest on the forest floor for several years, allowing their essential oils and resins to mature.
Importance of Traditional Harvesting
Practices Working with communities that adhere to traditional harvesting practices is crucial for the integrity and potency of Palo Santo. These practices not only preserve the quality of Palo Santo but also foster a harmonious relationship with the land, supporting local economy and forest conservation.
