Benefit of palo santo
Palo Santo, also known as “sacred wood”, is an ancient treasure from Ecuador. This wood is said to have the ability to transmute emotions, relieve tension, and balance energies, making it an essential element in many purifying rituals.
Its sweet and relaxing aroma promotes meditation and induces a sense of peace, which makes it ideal to be used in yoga, reiki and aromatherapy practices. In addition, it is believed that it has aphrodisiac properties, which helps to improve the love and spiritual relationship in couples.
Not only that, but Palo Santo also raises self-esteem, improves mood, and increases the feeling of calm and tranquility at home and in the environments where its aroma is released. It is a natural mosquito repellent, which makes it more recommendable than chemical repellents that affect our skin.
Finally, some studies suggest that Palo Santo has antidepressant, diuretic, cleansing, rheumatic and antiseptic properties, thanks to its main component, Limonene, present in an average of 89%.
With all this, it is not difficult to understand why Palo Santo is considered a sacred wood and valued throughout the world for its spiritual and healing properties.
