Palo Santo essential oil originates from the steam distillation of Palo Santo tree (Bursera graveolens) wood and leaves. Here is a comprehensive overview of the manufacturing process:
Sustainable Harvesting: To ensure species preservation, Palo Santo wood is primarily gathered from fallen or naturally expired trees. Emphasizing sustainable harvesting safeguards the environment and supports local communities.
Preparation: The harvested wood undergoes natural drying for an appropriate duration. This process not only enriches the wood’s fragrance but also facilitates essential oil extraction.
Steam Distillation: The dried Palo Santo wood undergoes steam distillation. This involves passing steam through the wood to extract the essential oil. The steam facilitates the release of aromatic compounds within the wood. After encountering challenges for several years and undergoing trial and error, we developed our own method to achieve the finest quality.
Separation: The blend of steam and essential oil is condensed, leading to the separation of oil from water. Due to the non-miscible nature of essential oils and water, separation occurs easily.
Purification: The extracted essential oil may be subject to filtration to eliminate impurities or debris carried over from the distillation process. It then rests and matures before entering the market.
Testing and Quality Control: Our essential oil undergoes comprehensive testing for quality, purity, and potency. Our continuous refinement of techniques and expertise ensures the market receives the best oil.
Packaging and Distribution: After passing quality control, the essential oil is bottled and packaged for distribution. Storage in opaque, airtight containers protects the oil from light and air, both of which can compromise its quality.
Labeling and Information: We provide exhaustive technical documentation, including botanical names, extraction methods, and country of origin. This information is available for customers to incorporate into their brand labels.
