Bursera Graveolens or Palo Santo in Spanish (Holy Wood in English), produces an essential oil which promotes a pure and clean aura. It is usually used as massage oil after a day’s work out or outdoor activity when you want to have a quick refreshing feeling.
The process of extracting Palo Santo oil is special and trivial on its own. Did you know that only the dead trees are used for this process? Not only that. These dead trees must be at least 2 years lying on the ground. The resin is then injected into the center of the wood after it dies and the chemical process begins within.
The distillation process is truly intricate, therapeutic, and unique. Because Bursera Graveolens means holy wood, its essential oil is considered as a spiritual oil and used for spiritual practices. Same with frankincense oil, palo santo essential oil can give the feeling of spiritual revival and positive outlook. It is also traditionally used to cast out bad luck and attract good luck in one’s home.
Besides its spiritual uses, Bursera Graveolens oil is being frequently used in South America for its disinfectant and antibacterial properties. Here are some of its medicinal benefits: When blended with oil of Carrot seed, Helichrysum Italicum, or Manuka, Palo Santo essential oil helps to heal pimples and other skin rash and disorders. In cases of depression, nervousness, fear, and panic episodes, Bursera Graveolens oil truly offers calming effects and reverses the melancholy mood to a positive disposition.
For optimum results, blend with Neroli, Frankincense, or Blood Orange. These are known to have anti-depressive properties. Palo Santo oil can be used to relieve debilitating pains of arthritis and migraines because it is an effective pain reliever and has anti-inflammatory properties. Lastly, but not the least, while it has a fragrant aroma, mosquitoes and other insects hate it thus it effectively works as insect repellent.
