Palo Santo wood in Ecuador

I visited Ecuador for the first time in June. What a beautiful country – with warm, friendly people!

You probably know that Palo Santo is a Young Living exclusive essential oil. It’s one of my favorites; to me it feels very spiritual, cleansing and protective. One day as I rounded a corner in downtown Cuenca, I smelled a wonderful scent from some wood pieces burning in a small can. A street vendor was selling small packages of the wood, and you could buy a can and the sand, too! A few minutes later it hit me, it was Palo Santo! In Ecuador, they burn the wood pieces for its healing properties and for cleansing spaces.

Of course, I had to buy a package. Now I can use my oil AND also experience Palo Santo as native Ecuadorians do! Have you used Palo Santo? If so, what do you like about it? Let me know on Facebook!

Unfortunately, I was not in the Guayaquil area so I didn’t get to visit the Young Living farm – next time, for sure!!
