Holy Wood is an aromatherapeutic pulse point oil crafted from the precious essence of the palo santo tree, in a base of nutritive hemp seed oil. Palo santo is spanish for “saint wood” or “holy wood”. This earthy and citrusy essential oil is from a family owned distillery in Ecuador where the wood is sustainably harvested on their own land and the oil is distilled from the heartwood of fallen palo santo trees.
Palo Santo is thought to help clear negative energy (some say that those that harbor negative energy react to the scent of palo santo like “dracula to garlic”) and to have a grounding and calming effect. A mood enhancer, it is used extensively in aromatherapy to combat anxiety and depression and to assist in meditation and making a spiritual connection.
Add a few drops to a bath to relax the senses, soften the skin, and help fight colds and flu. Use on pulse points as a calming and spiritually uplifting aromatherapeutic perfume oil. Dab on as an effective insect repellent.
