Do you like to keep your family healthy and with good energy? You must learn to use the Palo Santo, an aromatic tree that is revolutionizing within natural medicine and holistic life.
Palo Santo or also known by its scientific name Bursera Graveolens is native to the tropical dry forest of the Pacific coast of South America. It is generally found mostly in Ecuador. Many years ago, the shamans of the first Ecuadorian cultures used the smoke of the Palo Santo and its essential oil in order to heal the soul and body of the sick.
Currently, these types of holistic practices have not changed much, contrary to taking more strength, to the point that the Palo santo can now be found in different ways such as, for example, essential oils, incenses, and even soaps. It should be noted that all these products are 100% natural and free of chemicals and dyes.
One of the products derived from the most used palo santo is the Palo Santo essential oil which has a woody citrus aroma with a slight mint smell, famous for its properties antidepressants, diaphoretics, diuretics, depuratives, antirheumatics, sedatives, counteracts the stress and sadness, antiseptic and counteracts skin fungus.
Both the essential oil and the other Palo Santo products are made from the naturally dead palo santo trees. A Palo Santo tree has a life cycle of approximately 30 years or more, once it dies it has to rest for 2 to 4 years in its natural environment to obtain all the properties and benefits that this sacred wood offers us.
It should be emphasized that the Palo Santo should not be cut or harvested since a cut palo santo tree does not possess the properties like a naturally dead tree.
But due to its great popularity that it has obtained thanks to its multiple healing properties, several companies to earn money, are choosing to cut the trees and sell green wood, this, in the end, is bad for the environment and for us since we do not will give no benefit to our health, because it has no properties.
It is recommended that whenever we find sites that market palo santo and its derived products, make sure that they are responsible sites that work in a sustainable way and that carry reforestation programs. In Ecuador, there are companies that have reforestation programs where they have shaded more than 10,000 palo santo trees and are even carrying out joint studies by universities to determine the degree of CO2 storage with which the Palo Santo trees contribute.
