Sustainability: Our Palo Santo is recognized as the world's most sustainable. We source only from our partner Essential Oils Peru (EOP) who uses naturally fallen wood only. It is fully traceable from the Manga Manga community in the Dry North Coast Forest in the Piura department of Peru. Buying our Palo Santo helps protect this forest against clearing for agriculture. EOP works with the Peruvian Ministry of Forests (SERFOR) which regulates Palo Santo traceability and exports. 

Format: Labelled 6 and 12 stick packets available. We also have bulk sticks in 1lb and 1kg format for independent / retail distribution.

Note on Palo Santo and Sustainability: Please recognize that there has been a lot of misunderstanding around Palo Santo recently. The species Bulnesia sarmientoi is sometimes sold as Palo Santo. Bulnesia sarmientoi comes from the Gran Chaco region of South America (Paraguay / Bolivia / Argentina border) and is critically endangered and should not be bought or sold. Refer to this well-informed source article in the NY Times:

True Palo Santo is the species Bursera graveolens, which grows in Peru and Ecuador. This species is referred to as a species of "Least Concern" with "documented stable populations" by the IUCN. However, the dry forests in which Palo Santo grows plentifully are threatened as they are being cleared for ranching and other agriculture. The fact is that buying traceable Bursera graveolens such as ours, as a high value forest product, prevents forest clearing for lower value, low-yield cattle ranches in this arid climate. Furthermore, our partner EOP only uses naturally fallen wood, works with the community to plant new trees and supports a women's cooperative which makes handicrafts from the wood.
