Is the Palo Santo tree endangered?

No. The Palo Santo population is stable and not endangered. With its popularity, it’s important to buy Palo Santo that’s been ethically and sustainably sourced. While the tree isn’t endangered, it’s listed as “Least Concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. For many years, Palo Santo was harvested by deforestation. Deforestation has negative environmental effects. It also reduces local people’s sources of income.

But Palo Santo can be harvested without removing trees. The wood can be obtained from fallen branches, while the oil can be extracted from fruit. These methods leave the forest unharmed.

Before buying Palo Santo, make sure it was responsibly produced. This will help support the preservation of the Palo Santo species and the livelihood of the native peoples.


Sustainably harvested in Peru.
