Essential oils of Ecuador – Palo Santo
Welcome back !!! And a Happy New Year to you all.
We have a lot of great information to share with you in the coming weeks. We mentioned in our last post, that Gary Young had given a conference call covering topics such as cancer, hormonal inbalances and yeast infections. More recently he gave a conference call talking about Palo Santo and the blend RutaVala.
Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) and Ruta (Ruta graveolens), one of the constituent oils of Rutavala, are both harvested and distilled in Ecuador. So we thought this would be a great opportunity for us to introduce you to the essential oils of Ecuador.
The Frankincense of Ecuador
Palo Santo (which means “Holy Wood”) has many similarities to Frankincense and is used in a similar fashion by the peoples of Ecuador and Peru. Like Frankincense it’s considered a spiritual oil, and the locals use it to drive away negative energies.
Its constituents are similar but Palo Santo has a much higher level of limonene (55-65%), and is high in 1.8 Cineole and Carvacrol. What does that mean for you and me? Palo Santo has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral and immune-stimulating qualities.
Ways to use Palo Santo
Respiratory infections and congestion – Add a few drops of Palo Santo to V6 or a vegetable oil (almond or coconut are OK) and give the person a good back rub. If it’s a child, make it 2 drops of Palo Santo. If you’re travelling on a bus, plane or train during flu season, put Palo Santo under your nose and inhale; even putting on your handkerchief if you wish and periodically breathing it in.
Nasal Polyps – Gary Young had a patient swab the inside of the nose and in 6 weeks they were gone.
Eye infections and Stys – Take 1 drop of Palo Santo and one drop of Myrrh and rub around the eye. It hasn’t been tested yet, but Gary believes that Palo Santo can repair DNA.
Damage to cartilage and joints – A young man in Australia damaged the cartilage on his knees and it regenerated.
Depression – There are numerous people who have reported Palo Santo helping with depression by simply putting the oil on the tongue.
