Regulated by the Peruvian government
Our Palo Santo comes exclusively from Peru, where for years it has been regulated by the state, with a series of measures to ensure the balance between consumption and growth of this tree.
Harvesting is exclusively from fallen wood
Following state regulations, the wood is always harvested from fallen branches or dead trees. In addition, the extraction is always carried out in assigned areas with a previous study of the forest mass.
Commitment with the inhabitants and Re-plantation of the forest Palo Santo
The law states that it has to be extracted and cut by the inhabitants of the indigenous communities, thus benefiting the local economy.
When the Palo Santo passes through customs, it is checked that all the requirements have been met and all the corresponding documentation is handed over.
The Palo Santo
The incense of Palo Santo (bursera graveolens) is a natural wood incense used for centuries by the Incas and other indigenous cultures to purify and cleanse energies, providing spiritual protection. Its scent is intense and slightly sweet, and provides a sense of well-being.
The palo santo of our stores has its origin in Peru, in the Dry Forest of the Northwest. It is a tree adapted to arid conditions and high temperatures. In the dry and low water season it defoliates completely and appears as a dead tree, but at the beginning of the rains it resprouts very easily. It is preferably located on steep slopes and hillsides. Its bark is smooth, purple to grayish, and secretes a white or yellowish resin. It can reach up to 10 meters in height and grows from 50 to 1500 meters above sea level.
Peru's forestry regulations regulate the sustainable harvesting of palo santo wood through a Forest Management Plan that addresses the replenishment and maintenance of the resource, while promoting the cleaning of the forest, riverbanks and irrigation dams, where trunks and branches tend to accumulate.
Currently, palo santo continues to be used as incense or incense burner. Only trees that have completed their life cycle and die naturally are used. These trees are the only ones that after a period of rest provide aromatic properties and concentrate essential oils.
