tinderbox palo santo essential oil 15ml

Bursera graveolens

Palo Santo means Sacred (or Holy) Wood in Spanish, and the tree is in the same family as frankincense and myrrh. Use for ritual or spiritual practice to ward off evil, enhance connection to Spirit and stay focused. Use in clearing sprays to clear negative energies and negative thinking. Settles anxiety and aids sleep. Use in liniments for aching body areas. Using Palo Santo sourced from Ecuador is environmentally ethical because no trees are clear-felled for the wood; it is harvested only from fallen branches. It is a privilege for Tinderbox to have sourced this rare Shaman's essential oil.
