Palo Santo can be used to treat several types of inflammation-induced pain: arthritis, headaches, and a sore throat. This also may be related to limonene, which can inhibit certain neuronal pathways, according to a 2016 study made on animals. To relieve pain, use the essential oil diluted in a carrier oil and apply it to the affected area. To treat a sore throat, use wood shavings and steep in boiling water for 10 minutes. Add honey and enjoy your tea.
Palo Santo smoke can also be used to repel mosquitos thanks to the limonene. The chemical is also used in natural insect repellent products.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid using Palo Santo oil or incense.
If you're using Palo Santo for spiritual cleansing or energy healing, make sure you purchase a respectfully-sourced tree, as this tree is considered sacred to some cultures. It can be harvested from naturally fallen branches. The oil can be produced from the fruits, without causing deforestation.
