Note on Palo Santo and Sustainability:
Please recognize that there has been a lot of misinformation around Palo Santo recently. The species Bulnesia sarmientoi is sometimes sold as Palo Santo. Bulnesia sarmientoi comes from the Gran Chaco region of South America (Paraguay / Bolivia / Argentina border), is critically endangered and should not be bought or sold. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/16/style/self-care/palo-santo-wood-endangered.html
True Palo Santo is the species Bursera graveolens, which grows in Peru and Ecuador. This species is not endangered but the dry forests in which it grows plentifully are threatened as they are being cleared for livestock. The fact is that buying traceable Bursera graveolens such as ours, as a high value forest product, prevents forest clearing for lower value, low-yield cattle ranches in this arid climate. Furthermore, our partner EOP only uses naturally fallen wood, works with the community to plant new trees and supports a women's cooperative which makes handicrafts from the wood.
