Our Palo Santo is sustainable!

Our Palo Santo products do not require cutting trees; instead, our suppliers use dead trees from dry tropical forests. Dead Palo Santo trees, lying on the ground for decades, concentrating their essential oil, give the very best oil and wood. This sustainable collection practice and planting of more Palo Santo trees make these products sustainable. Our supplier planted 10,000+ Palo Santo trees in the last 4 years.


  • Palo Santo, or the holy tree (Bursera graveolens), is native to Mexico, Central and South America, and the Galapagos Islands. It belongs to the same family of trees as the resins Frankincense and Myrrh, and it emits rich aromas of citrusy sweet, earthy tones.
