Plant Therapy Palo Santo Essential Oil
Originated in South America, Palo Santo comes from the Palo Santo tree that translates in Spanish as “holy wood.” This sacred tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy.
The oil is distilled from the aged heartwood from the trunk of the Palo Santo tree that is rich in terpenes such as limonene and α-terpineol; making this a cousin to Frankincense and Myrrh. Due to its powerful chemical makeup, this essential oil is well known for its healing, calming, and cleansing capabilities.
Add 2 drops of Palo Santo, 2 drops of Lavender, and 1 drop of Mandarin to 1 tablespoon of bubble bath or body wash; mix into your bathwater to help relax and alleviate the lows from everyday worry. To help reduce tenderness, mix 2 drops of Palo Santo, 2 drops of Frankincense with 1 ounce of your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil and apply topically to the affected area. We recommend a maximum dilution of 3% for topical applications.

Those buying will need to take note that this oils smells different from the stick and YL version. It does carry a similar scent at its core smell, but this is noticeably lighter and sweeter, with a slightly oddly plastic smell. Those looking for the stronger and pungent smell found in both the wood and YL version will not find it in this Plant Therapy version of Palo Santo.
Personally i love the scent of Palo Santo so much. This scent is very strong. First time trying out this scent and always like PT's products. i diffuse it in my room at night and the next day i go out with my bag i can smell the scent every time i open my bag, even after few days the scent is still there. It smells good to me.
The scent is very very strong at first. Smells like chemical. But after awhile, it became milder and smells like the actual wood!
Takes time to adapt to the smell but nonetheless blends well with other EOs for a good evening sleep.
As close to the real palo santo wood as it can get
