Palo Santo Hydrosol
Palo Santo Hydrosol
Renew and reawaken to the core of your true beauty with Palo Santo. This “holy wood” has been used in the cleansing rituals of Central & South American peoples for hundreds of years. Become encircled by notes of bright citrus, rich vanilla and resinous wood. Mist during yoga or spiritual practice for grounding, enhancing creativity, elevating mood & stimulating the mind. Physically, Palo Santo is uplifting, being known to help relieve headaches, anxiety, depression and emotional blockages. This sacred mist is antioxidant-rich, purifying, anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial, strengthening the skin as it hydrates and energizes tired muscles.
Our careful sourcing is in support of responsible and ethical practices, which have extensive reforestation efforts in place, ensuring a long-term supply for future generations. Coming from Ecuador (slightly sweeter) and Peru (slightly more spicy), the wood we distill has been ethically collected from only naturally fallen wood, aged 3-5 years before harvest. As the tree cures over a few years, the sacred oil is being concentrated into the heartwood, leading to a more potent and resinous wood once distilled. When harvested ethically, no living trees are ever cut in the process. This ensures that the Palo Santo we do source, is sustainable, and contains the transformative essences that we all have come to love and recognize.
Best Use: Mist liberally onto body or atmosphere. Notice how your energy shifts. If using on the face, mist your Hydrosol until saturated, and pat for ample hydration. For added moisture morning and night, follow by gently massaging a nourishing facial oil into the skin, and finish with another mist of your Hydrosol to lock in moisture. Your daily use restores the skin’s natural PH balance as it peacefully grounds you.
We recommend our Lemon Light Hydrosol as a harmonious, uplifting sister spray to your Palo Santo Hydrosol.
Ingredients: 100% steam & hydro distillation of ethically sourced, Palo Santo Wood (Bursera graveolens)

WHAT IS A HYDROSOL?
Hydrosols, also known as Distillates, are the subtle, and often aromatic waters resulting from slowly distilled plant material, and are some of nature's best antioxidants for the skin. Lovingly made using hand collected local spring water, combined with ethically wildcrafted and organically grown plant material, they are distilled in a traditional copper alembic still.
Alchemists from all over the world have performed transformational distillations in these traditional stills for over 3,000 years, and this artisan process still remains the same! The actual method of performing our distillations has a 5-7 hour duration, a much slower process compared to more commercialized modes of skin care production. What results, is a nutrient-rich, energetic, and authentic Hydrosol, containing the plant's own suspended micro particles of essential oil, plant acids, even a plant's specific essence and memory imprint. Each offers its own unique botanical remedy dependent on the plant distilled, thus leading to the reference that a Hydrosol is a hologram of the plant itself!
Hydrosols are incredibly gentle and well-suited for beings of all ages and sensitivities (including babies and pets alike). Wildcare Hydrosols are recommended as a daily facial toner, and play an important role in protecting and nourishing the skin from everyday pollutants. In addition to a being a supreme skin tonic, your Hydrosol may also be used as a holistic and energetic mist, scalp tonic, added to baths, and used in conjunction with our Clay Masks.
Store your Hydrosol in the refrigerator for extra-cooling skin relief and always in a cool, dark place, using within 1 year.
