As you are aware, a palo santo tree must die after 30 years (average) and then lie in the forest for about 2-4 years in order to be able to process it. It is quite a precious wood. Some logs are good for distillation, some for incense. We have implemented technology to avoid any waste generated during manufacturing; In other words, nothing is wasted out of a palo santo log.

Currently, we have created a red bracelet with a palosanto-sacred-bead representing the trees we are planting as part of our reforestation program #PaloSantoDoneRight, +11000 trees since 2015, involving the native community, the students of schools, implementing our environmental education program; Aiming to develop sustainable cities.

Palo Santo is known for its many properties. This sacred wood helps to purify energies that surround us, and attracts good fortune, peace and tranquility, in addition, the pleasant aroma of woody citrus with a slight scent of mint helps us to be in harmony.

Carry the sacred aroma everywhere and enhance your well-being. Each bracelet works as a natural diffuser. It comes with a vial of Palo Santo essential oil, which serves to hydrate the sacred pearl of our bracelet when we feel that its smell is decreasing. Placing a drop of essential oil will reactivate the characteristic aroma of palo santo. 

Fair trade Palo Santo Bracelet lovingly handmade by Ecuador women

By acquiring the magical red bracelet you also help generate more employment for artisan women.

Among our collaborators, we have four great women who day by day weave with their hands the Palo Santo bracelets that reach your hands. Three mothers, who are the breadwinners of their home, and a young student, they can take advantage of their time between their daily tasks and the elaboration of the bracelets.

Alejandra Vicuña, is a young student who found it difficult to obtain income to pay for her studies and help at home, because his studies require an important investment of time that does not allow him to develop in a traditional job. “As I am a student, it is difficult for me to earn an economic income, because the study schedules vary a lot, and with this work I obtain economic income with which I can pay for my studies and accommodate my time without sacrificing my career”.

Likewise, the three mothers who also carry out this artisan work obtain an economic boost that helps them support their home or promote their own businesses in the local market, without having to put aside their household chores, such as taking their children to school, help them with daily chores or spend quality time with them.

Every week our collaborators weave around 250 bracelets.
