About the Palo Santo
Composition and properties of Palo Santo.
A myriad of benefits, that's what gives us the Palo Santo. This healing tree captivated the Spaniards in the Conquest and even today, four years later we still marveling. Incredibly all parts of the tree are used in one way or another, it is no waste product, on the contrary, the most taken out.
Aptly the tree was named Bursera Graveolens, scientific name which means "bag full of oil. '' Studies have shown that in their chemical composition are influenza elements (Alpha-Pinene), antiseptics (Terminate-4-OL), sedatives (Carvone, which is also insecticide) and antiviral (sesquiterpene), among others. Therefore, and rightly so many claim that this is a real source of natural medicine.
But that's not all, in addition to the already mentioned components, there is one that stands out from the rest. Limonene are talking about, whose 62.88% of presence in the lignum could help prevent tumors of the stomach, liver, breast and skin, all this as part of its cleansing properties, both physical and spiritual.
According to tradition, in ancient times shamans and healers already knew the medicinal benefits of Palo Santo and wisely used it to relieve diseases such as flu, allergies, headaches and bone.
Before, indigenous cultures made use of the wood of a rustic way. Today, much more aesthetically Palo Santo incense is made, that once burned produces smoke that cleanse and purify the environment from germs,bacteries,evil spirits, bad vibes, and other negative forces.
In the essence of Palo Santo is the guayaheretico acid, responsible for pain relief. This also acts on the human endocrine system, promoting the secretion of certain hormones, such as dopamine and endorphins, allowing problems to treat depression, feelings of abandonment, stress and others. With all the above mentioned we should give a chance to Palo Santo, we lose nothing by trying this natural remedy.
