Through many cultures and traditions, the palo santo has been a heaven’s gift, having special usages and different forms. We can use it to avoid bad vibes, clean a room, purify your soul, attract good luck and reach a deeper connection while meditating.
It has been saying that Palo Santo application is illegal because it is an endangered wood and the therapist uses come because we cut the live palo santo but, What is the reliable truth of this information?
This Holy Wood grows mainly in Latin America, Peru & Ecuador, and are ubicated in dry woods, most known as the dry jungles. Their principal characteristic is their smell, a concentration between citric and mint very nice. The Palo Santo Woods in Peru are regulated by SERFOR, a government authority which protects and takes care of the Peruvian flora and wildlife.
Servicio Forestal y de Fauna Silvestre (SERFOR) about Palo Santo
SERFOR regulates the recollection of this wood when the tree has already died because of its nature. We just recollect wooden logs falling from the trees. Besides all the properties of Palo Santo and the smell durability gets when the wood is totally dead.
With no information, we can think that the alive wood gives us the best smelling and properties, but curiously this is NOT true. At the time a Palo Santo alive is cut, this one has a strong smell, but when the time passes it gets lost totally.
Gate Export acts with responsibility in the Palo Santo Wood recollection and empowers communities with tools and education to look after them and all the living beings who exist in our Peruvian ecosystem.
Nowadays, it’s hard to talk about the extinction of this species (almost impossible) because we have hundreds of Woods in the Peru North, which are regulated by SERFOR and it grows periodically. But, it does not mean that the organizations and people do not have to take care and act with responsibility with this tree.
We are authorized by SERFOR to recollect and export Bursera Graveolens Wood because the way what we do does not affect the environment. We can guarantee a sustainable activity in which we give you a gif of our planet or as we like to call it “La Pachamama”
