Therapeutic Grade Palo Santo Essential Oil (Bursera graveolens) gets distilled at Finca Botanica Aromatica which is Young Living’s farm in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Palo Santo comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as frankincense, but it is found in South America instead of the Middle East. Like it’s relative, palo santo is traditionally known as a spiritual oil by the Spanish as its name means holy wood or sacred wood. It has been used for generations by the Incas to cleanse and purify the spirit from negative energies as well as ward off harmful spiritual influences. Gary Young was introduced to this amazing oil by Ecuadorian natives who have kept its uses alive in modern times.
