Guaiacwood doTERRA's Essential Oil Holy Wood

Guaiacwood is frequently used in perfumes and skincare. Native Americans have utilized guaiacwood in meditation and health ceremonies for millennia. Guaiacwood essential oil is steam distilled from the heartwood of the Bulnesia sarmientoi tree and has an earthy, anchoring scent with a slight sweetness. Guaiacwood is combined with Fractionated Coconut Oil and may be applied topically as well as aromatically. Its woody aroma creates a relaxing and peaceful ambiance.


The Bulnesia sarmientoi tree, often known as palo santo (meaning “holy wood”), is endemic to South America’s Gran Chaco region. This tree’s famous wood is strong, hefty, and durable, with a lovely scent. The sweet-smelling Guaiacwood essential oil is extracted from the tree’s heartwood using steam distillation.

Aromatically and topically, guaiacwood essential oil can be utilized. Its rich, woody scent promotes a peaceful, rooted environment. The earthy-sweet perfume may be enjoyed by diffusing it, applying it to your hands, wrists, or neck, or simply enjoying it directly from the container. Topical use of Guaiacwood may relieve mild skin irritations and enhance your skin’s natural moisture.
