Palo Santo oil, meaning “Holy wood” or “wood of the saints” is a concentrated oil found inside the interior of the tree’s trunk. It takes about 10 years for the tree to produce the oil. However, because of over-harvesting, only the branches can be used now for the distillation, as they naturally fall to the ground.
