Origin of Palo Santo in store Templo de Buda
Much of this wonderful sacred wood comes from Peru and Ecuador. They are areas where their real power of protection and smell is great. Because of this wisdom, these sites have been sought for years and thousands of Palo Santo trees have been killed for commercial use only and to satisfy the market. With this killing, these countries were forced to make Palo Santo trees almost untouchable and fully protected by laws and organizations of the countries themselves. Some trees take about 200 years to grow and it is very important to protect this wonder of Nature. With these laws, only the sticks that fall naturally from these trees in these countries are harvested. But after falling, it should still be expected between 4 and 10 years to be able to make available. Interesting that Palo Santo aroma is only present 3 to 4 years after the fall of the tree. The molecular chemical arrangement of wood changes over this time causing the tree resin to concentrate and the aroma of the wood intensifies. It’s really a wise tree.
Another reason that led the people, especially shamans to revolt against the rampant cut of this tree, is because the ancient practice of shamanism believes that plants have spirits and that the spirit can be a strong remedy. The shaman turns to the spirit of the plant and lets him take care of the person in his rituals. Stop this, the Spirit must gain maturity and direct wisdom from the Divine.
