Where does it come from ?
Belonging to the Bursera Graveolens Family we found it within the dry tropical forest along the Pacific Coast South America’s.
Our Palo Santo Forest is located in the Manabi Province in Ecuador, but we find it in the Loja Province as well.
Is Palo Santo at Risk ?
Palo Santo in Ecuador was at risk of disappearing due to the wrong handling and lack of knowledge.
Wood traffickers who used to produce charcoal with this Sacred Wood. Cattle owners who fed the animals within the Forest.
“Besides to these problems the government did not take care of nothing”.
20 years ago the people did not know the real properties, power and the products we could make out of Palo Santo, even the locals were using it in wrong way.
Happily our beloved master Dante Bolcato fought for running a project to protect the forest and make new products for exportation.
Of course the incense is powerful but we can have the most of its benefits from the oil.
Protecting the Forest was fine but what about the families who used to live from the Palo Santo Forest ? They became the craftswomen and craftsmen who make the products, collect the wood and protect the Forest itself.
Quality vs Quantity
Our goal is produce high quality products keeping a handmade process, besides we need to generate job for the families who live from the Palo Santo.
some of them make the products, some of them collect the wood the older ones protect the forest from wood traffickers and cattle owners.
