Palo Santo, Rose, & Sandalwood: Three Grounding and Purifying Oils
Palo santo, rose, and sandalwood are the three powerful essential oils that make up our Grounding & Purifying Time Anointment oil. They are highly regarded oils that have been used spiritually and medicinally for centuries. It is no wonder why they pair beautifully together and release a fragrance that enhances mental clarity, creates a warm comforting feeling, and clears negativity.
The Palo Santo tree grows native to South America and thrives in dry tropical forests. The essential oil is distilled from batches of harvested wood and is known for its earthy, woodsy fragrance. The use of palo santo dates back to the Incan Era where it was used in ceremonies and rituals to purify, clear negative energy, attract positive energy and heal oneself physically and spiritually. This highly spiritual essential oil stimulates the brain and activates a response of relaxation with feelings of comfort, peace, and tranquility.
The extraction of rose oil dates back to 7th century A.D Iran. It is known as the “wonder oil” in many cultures, as it vibrates at such a high frequency and its uses are endless. The oil itself is extracted using a very delicate process of steam distillation. The petals are picked and distilled the same day in a process that usually begins before sunrise. It is a time-sensitive and labor-intensive process, but the yield is extraordinary – a calming, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging oil that warrants a fragrance known to balance, create harmony, uplift, and produce feel-good emotions.
The Sandalwood tree, or Indian sandalwood, is a small tropical tree native to Southern India and South East Asia. Similar to palo santo, sandalwood oil is extracted using steam distillation from the wood and roots of the tree, yielding a dry, sweet, woodsy fragrance. It is one of the most valuable trees in the world and is widely used as a base note in fragranced products. Sandalwood oil is ultra-grounding, induces relaxation, and is known in the Buddhist culture to aid in maintaining alertness and focus during meditation.
