Palo Santo Products

Palo Santo Products

In South America and particularly around the area of the Andes in Peru and Ecuador the Palo Santo tree has been highly revered for it’s spiritual, medicinal and cleansing properties. From a time before the Incas this tree has been an integral part of life for the South American people as an incense. Here at Indigo Herbs we are delighted to offer this sacred incense in the form of Palo Santo Stick Incense, Palo Santo Shredded Incense, Palo Santo Incense, Palo Santo Essential Oil, Palo Santo Hydrolat and Palo Santo Soap. Also known as "holy wood", Indigo Herbs Palo Santo has been traditionally gathered and not adulterated in any way.

The use of this tree was an essential part of ceremonies and rituals for the Incas and continues to be so for the Shamans of South America, and it is used as a prerequisite before any ritual or healing. It is thought to erase negativity and misfortune from both people and environments with its very special aroma. The legend related to this tree tells how a man called Cosokait falls in love with a young maiden but his feelings are not reciprocated. Cosokait falls tragically ill and even though he is at the point of death the young woman still will not see him. He promises that he’ll always be with the girl as protection and will never leave her being in her presence at every step. Eventually due to a high fever Cosokait dies but during the last phase of his life he constantly repeats the name of the girl he’s in love with. Due to his single minded devotion and virtue a tree sprouts directly where Cosokait is buried. The tree is Palo Santo and has all the sweet qualities and promises of protection that Cosokait promised to the young maiden.

This truly special tree cannot be just cut to be used for its alchemical properties. When Palo Santo is alive and growing the scent is totally devoid in the wood. In a life that usually lasts for around 80 years it is only when the tree has been dead for 4-10 years, and totally untouched where it has grown that the wood creates its special properties. If a branch is cut and dried it will not have any of the assets that makes Palo Santo exceptional. It is through the chemical changes, like a slow cure, that gives Palo Santo its spiritually beneficial merits, which transfer its transcendent qualities through th smoke. Palo Santo grows in the wild as well as being cultivated. It has a grey bark and can grow to a height of around 5-6 meters. Leaves are a mid-green and sprout opposite each other on spines with small white flowers sprouting from the same apex as the leaf spines.

Palo Santo essential oil has long been used to clear negative energy from home and work spaces. It is also rich in anti-inflammatory compounds and can be diluted with a carrier oil and rubbed into sore joints and muscles. 

The uplifting scent coupled with the aromatic compounds found in this oil can directly affect the olfactory system in the body, as well as the limbic system in the brain, helping to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression. 

Palo Santo can be added to creams and skin lotions to help tighten up the skin and stimulate the growth of new skin cells. It has been found to inhibit the elastase enzyme, which is responsible for breaking down the elastin in the skin.

Blends well with; 

black pepper, cedarwood, clary sage, cypress, douglas fir, frankincense, lemon balm, myrrh, rose, vetivert and sandalwood essential oils.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Palo Santo essential oil can be used in the bath, or vaporized in an oil burner. It can be added to a massage oil or cream. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation or cold pressing.

Indigo Herbs Palo Santo Essential Oil is extracted using the "steam distillation" method. In this process the botanical material is placed in a still and steam is forced over the material. The hot steam helps to release the aromatic molecules from the plant material since the steam forces open the pockets in which the oils are kept. Molecules of the volatile oils then escape and evaporate into the steam. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled - just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. The steam now containing the essential oil is passed through a cooling system to condense the steam which forms a liquid. The essential oil is then separated from the water and bottled, resulting in 100% pure essential oil.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.

Palo Santo Hydrolat is a gentle and soothing herbal water that is ideal for use to refresh and cleanse the skin. With antibacterial qualities, it can also be used to disinfect wounds and to calm down itchy skin.

Palo Santo Hydrolat is made during the steam distillation of plant matter that produces both essential oils and hydrolats. During the distillation of a plant, two products are extracted: essential oils, which are fat-soluble compounds, and flavoured waters (hydrolats). Both essential oils and flavoured waters contain the active ingredients of the plant from which they’re extracted. Essential oils and flavoured waters, called hydrolats (floral waters if they’re extracted from a flower), absorb the active ingredients of the plant from which they are extracted. But the levels of active ingredients in hydrolats are lower than in essential oils, which makes them more delicate and particularly suitable for sensitive skin. They are also preservative-free.

It is recommended to perform a patch test to check for allergic reactions. Do not apply to broken skin.

Natural incense resins are simple and easy to use. The resins, dried leaves and woods need to be burnt to release their aromatic smoke. This smoke is a 100% pure and a great natural way to perfume a room. The resin is burnt on small charcoal disks, the disks need to be set in a heat resistant container for safety purposes. We recommend a purpose made incense burner that is made from brass.

The charcoal disk is lit and as it smoulders and turns grey the natural incense resins can be added. Additional incense can be added until the charcoal has burnt down. This incense experience is aromatic, heady and sensual. Why not bring out your inner perfume maker and enjoy blending different resins together to create the ideal aroma for an occasion. For full instructions go to our How to blend and use Incense page.

1. Take a lighter or match to a Charcoal disk, and when it is fully alight then set it safely into a charcoal disk holder, or heat resistant receptacle.

2. When the charcoal disk has turned grey and ash like, then add a couple of tears of plant resin, powder, bark or chips.

3. This plant matter will begin to smolder and release an aromatic smoke.

4. Set the lid on the charcoal burner, and enjoy the sensual experience of the aroma pervading the room.

5. Add more incense when required.  

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.
