While in Ecuador, we had the chance to visit the Palo Santo Forest and Chapel Hill.
The Palo Santo Forest is 50 acres long. Gary Young brought many Palo Santo trees from other areas to Ecuador. If you scratch the tree with your nail, you can smell it’s aroma. It takes 60 kilos to produce 2 1/2 liters of Palo Santo essential oil.
Young Living distills Palo Santo almost every day at their on-premise distillery. In order to distill this tree, it must first fall down naturally and then they wait another 1-2 years for the tree to be really dry. The tree must die normally and without human intervention. Only the trunks and roots are distilled. The Palo Santo wood is distilled with water. This type of distillation is called hydro distillation. While distilling all of their essential oils, the oils touch nothing except stainless steel and glass. After it is distilled, samples from each batch are taken to their on-premise laboratory to be analyzed. The Ecuador Farm has the complete Seed to Seal process in this one location!
Chelsa & Palo Santo Tree
In the Palo Santo Forest is the most spiritual place on the farm, Chapel Hill. In 2008 Gary and Mary would take their children to pray and read the bible at Chapel Hill. It is a beautiful and peaceful location.
