Dr. Nick Notes
Palo Santo provides a high vibration oil, a seemingly precious concentrate from the dried wood essence which is typically lit to release it’s cleansing fragrance. Vaporizing Palo Santo oil brings a clarity into the mind’s eye, relaxing the system with a cool overindulgence of sweet flavor. Heating the oil softens an area and prepares participants for ceremony.
The fragrance of the Palo Santo wood comes from the inside out – when the tree dies, the fragrance from the wood shifts into a sweet, radiant concentrated scent over about two years. As the dead wood ages, the fragrance matures – real Palo Santo must naturally die and age to release its highest form of fragrance. With increased age since a tree’s passing, the quality improves (ie. 2-10+ years).
Nature really knows how to provide her own essence best!
