Our Palo Santo is sustainably harvested from a private reserve in Ecuador from trees and branches that have naturally fallen and have been laying dead for 4-10 years before they are harvested. Only the naturally fallen trees produce the wonderfully woody scent. The longer the tree has been dead, the more potent the scent. Some Palo Santo trees can live to be 80-90+ years old.
These are large, hand cut sticks which are not uniform in size, but great for clearing spaces.
