Yes! Our Palo Santo is ethically and sustainably harvested. Each stick is cut by axe, at the hands of native indigenous people from Peru. These people are the only ones with the necessary official government certificates to make our Palo Santo importations to the US possible. (SERFOR, PHYTOSANITARY, CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN, USDA).
No! There are actually 2 different species, both known by the name Palo Santo, Bulnesia sarmientoi and Bursera graveolens.
Bulnesia sarmientoi is a slow growing tree that is indigineous to Paraguary, Argentina and Bolivia. This type has held endangered status since 2018, and is NEVER sourced or sold by The Ohm Store.
Bursera graveolens, the Palo Santo you are buying today, is NOT endangered and is the only kind sold by The Ohm Store.
Used heavily as aromatherapy, Palo Santo contains a substance called limonene. Limonene is a well-known terpene found in many medicinal plants.
I was expecting a bigger sage bundle
Thank you for this feedback, Lynda! We can definitely do better and list the sizes on the description page to set a clear expectation. We appreciate you bringing this detail to our attention!
So far, I have loved the products and have just ordered more. Thanks for helping me make my meditation practice better every day.
I have used sage for years but this is my first experience with Palo Santo. Happy to be introduced to it! I received it rather quickly considering the sabotage of the U.S. mail service by DeJoy. Will order again!
