Palo Santo and fair trade

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.

The harvest is exclusively of fallen wood

Following state rules, wood is always collected from fallen branches or already dead trees. In addition, extraction is always carried out in assigned areas with a previous study of forest mass.

Commitment to the inhabitants and re-planting of Palo Santo

The law marks that it has to be extracted and cut by the inhabitants of the indigenous communities, thus benefiting the local economy.

When Palo Santo passes through customs, it is verified that all the requirements have been met and all the corresponding documentation is delivered.

El Palo Santo

Palo Santo incense (bursera graveolens) is a natural wood incense used for centuries by incas and other indigenous cultures to purify and cleanse energies providing spiritual protection. Its smell is intense and slightly sweet, and provides a sense of well-being.

The holy stick of our stores has its origins in Peru, in the Northwest Dry Forest. It is a tree adapted to aridity conditions and high temperatures. In dry and sty age it is totally defoliated and appears as a dead tree, but at the beginning of the rains it regrows very easily. It is preferably located on steep slope slopes and hills. 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 use of palo santo wood through a Forest Management Plan that addresses the replenishment and maintenance of the resource, while promoting the cleanliness of forest, banks and irrigation dams, where logs and branches usually accumulate.

Currently the holy stick continues to be used as incense or sahumerio. Only trees that have completed their life cycle and die naturally are used. These trees are the only ones that after a resting time provide aromatic properties and concentrate essential oils.
