Burning dried wood from the “mystical” palo santo tree and collecting its concentrated oils have been widely used in folk medicines and by shamans (“medicine men”) for centuries because of the tree’s perceived spiritual applications. The wood from palo santo trees is also commonly burnt as incense and used to make a natural mosquito repellent (like citronella oil) because it possesses aromatic resins and volatile oils.
Burned similarly to other incense by lighting shavings of palo santo wood, the smell keeps bugs and spiritual “bad energy” away, according to mystics. In Peru, a shaman will light palo santo sticks, and the rising smoke is said to enter the “energy field” surrounding the site. For ritual participants who observe the practice and take in palo santo’s aroma, it’s believed to “clear misfortune, negative thought prints, and evil spirits.” This is the reason it’s known as a powerful essential oil for mental and emotional clarity.
Palo Santo Benefits Immunity and Lowers Inflammation
Today, palo santo trees are widely grown and collected so their wood can be used to produce bottled essential oil using steam distillation. Aside from its mental health applications, palo santo offers promising benefits when it comes to raising immunity and fighting illness.
As a rich supply of antioxidants and phytochemicals called terpenes, including limonene and α-terpineol, concentrated palo santo oil is effective for fighting free radical damage(also called oxidative stress), relieving stomach aches, fighting stress, reducing pains due to arthritis and healing many other conditions. Particularly, it’s been gaining attention for being a natural cancer treatment for inflammatory diseases.
An analysis of steam-distilled palo santo oil (using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry) showed that the major active constituents include: limonene (89.33 percent), α-terpineol (11 percent), menthofuran (6.6 percent) and carvone (2 percent). Other beneficial compounds in smaller quantities include germacrene D, muurolene and pulegone.
Palo Santo Research and Studies
Over 40 different types of palo santo trees are grown worldwide, mostly throughout Central and South America. The use of palo santo bark and oil has been a traditional medicinal and religious practice in South America for many years, especially in Ecuador where it’s known to bring about “good luck.”
In fact, palo santo oil was believed to first be used during the time of the Incas for its reputed spiritual purifying properties. According to the local customs, palo santo oil can help protect from bad energy, known as “mala energía,” so it’s used to clean people’s homes from both disease and spiritual blockers.
Recently, studies have shown us that palo santo oil contains cancer-fighting compounds that lower oxidative stress and protect cells. Just like citrus and frankincense oil fight cancer, palo santo contains highly protective phytochemicals that can stop disease formation within the digestive, endocrine, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
Limonene, the main active ingredient in palo santo, is a bioactive component found in high concentrations in certain plants, including citrus peels, that has well-researchedanticancer and anti-inflammatory effects. In preclinical studies of mammary carcinogenesis and inflammation-related diseases, supplementing with limonene helps to fight inflammation, lower cytokines and protects the epithelial barrier of cells.
When tested, these compounds showed remarkable inhibitory activity against human cancer and ﬁbrosarcoma cells. Researchers observed biological activities including antineoplastic, antitumor, antiviral and anti-inflammatory actions against cell mutations and tumor growth. Triter-pene lupeol compounds found in palo santo especially showed strong activity against lung, breast and colon cancer cells.
