Wanting a healthy life of peace and well-being naturally can be very easy if we use the right elements. An option to be in complete well-being is the practice of aromatherapy, an ancestral technique that is used to improve physical and mental health; It consists of perceiving odors that help stimulate the senses, relax the body, relieve muscle ailments and clean its energies with the help of massages or aroma diffusers.  


Within aromatherapy essential oils play a very fundamental role, many of them have healing properties, such as the special Bursera Graveolens (Palo Santo) essential oil that has a pleasant woody citrus aroma, and high levels of Limonene ( DL) a medicinal terpene known to be a strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic agent.

The steam distillation method is used to obtain the essential oils, Palo Santo trees that have died on their own are used. A Palo Santo tree has an approximate life cycle of 30 years, once it dies it has to rest for 2 to 4 years in its natural environment to be able to obtain all the benefits that this sacred wood has.


But due to the popularity that the Palo Santo tree has gained, some sites are not respecting the life cycle of this tree and therefore offer products that have no benefit or utility. It is very important to know that a cut Palo Santo tree has no value, since it does not contain its medicinal properties, nor does it smell.


It is for this reason that at the time of acquiring a natural product you must make sure you do it from companies that work in sustainable ways and that have reforestation programs, such as EcuadorianHands, an Ecuadorian company that has been commercializing aromatherapy products derived from Palo Santo for more than 10 years and of excellent quality such as essential oil, incense, cones, soaps, and other products. In addition to marketing the Palo Santo tree, he has been working for 5 years on a reforestation plan with which they have managed to plant more than 10,000 trees of palo santo in the community of Joa / Jipijapa / Ecuador.
