Palo Santo is a mystical tree native to the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. Anima Mundi palo santo is 100% ethically harvested from Peru. They work directly with a small native family from the Lambayeque – Región Chiclayo in northern Peru. They ethically harvest from naturally fallen and aged trees (minimum of four years), while replanting in the wild. The family we work with have been stewards of this preserved land for generations, and have been caretaking these trees in a sacred manner for 100+ years.
