Tree grows for about 40 years and then dies. Then, it has to lay down for about 10 more years before we can process it. Palo Santo is obtained from the wood after the natural death of the tree, or from pieces found on the ground.  To retain its special properties, the dead tree must lay on the ground for years before harvesting the wood. The process of producing oil will begin after the tree has been on the ground for some time.  The oil will develop gradually in the trunk and the longer the tree remains on the ground, the higher the quality of essential oil that it will contain.  As the wood matures, after the tree has died, chemical changes occur which make it a very powerful oil.
 
Palo Santo grows wildy in the forest. However, we are replanting palo santo trees, that we will not get to process. This is our contribution to the future generations to come.

Through a distillation process by vapor stream (no chemicals) is obtained an oil which is used for Aromatherapy Essential Oils and massage.
