Bursera Graveolens Tree
There are numerous different species of trees called Palo Santo, which its name is associated with “Sacred Wood”, but the best-known species is Bursera Graveolens, found in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Brazil (Mato Grosso). This tree needs to fall naturally, and for all its therapeutic benefits to be exploited, it must be left curing on the forest floor for 6 to 10 years. If this wood is harvested before 4 years, the molecular composition will not be concentrated enough to manifest the fragrant healing aroma.
Despite being a great essential oil, its use is not recommended during pregnancy. Don’t forget to consult your doctor or aromatherapist for medicinal treatment!
