We have taken a lot of time and consideration in choosing which Palo Santo to bring to you.
Our bulk Palo Santo sticks are sold as individual sticks in your preferred quantity. Grab one or a handful!
We are offering the highest quality Palo Santo, sustainably harvested from the forests of Ecuador, that was gathered wood from fallen trees that have aged at least four years, allowing the resins to naturally develop. More scientific research needs to be done to understand why, but when it comes to Palo Santo, a cut tree is a bland tree. In order to produce the resin we enjoy for its delightful healing aroma, Palo Santo requires a natural death and a prolonged aging period. As such, the cultivation and harvest of Palo Santo is actually ideally suited to a sustainable business model that emphasizes an intimate working relationship with the land.
Our Palo Santo wood is naturally cured on the forest floor 4 to 10 years, then harvested by hand.
