The longevity of each personal diffuser depends on usage. Most people get around 200 breaths from each device, which is close to 1 month of continued use. Most users are satisfied taking 2-3 breaths every few hours due to the robust and complex flavors within our blends.

Bursera Graveolens, known in Spanish as Palo Santo (“holy wood”) is a wild tree from Latin America.

Palo Santo also helps with concentration during meditation.
The sweetly woody, balsamic distillate has been a constituent of incense and perfumes since biblical times. Some claim that this is the myrrh to which the Song of Solomon referred. It has found aromatic applications outside of perfumery, in cases of stress, depression, minor pain, inflammation, skin issues, and in respiratory complaints. The effects are peaceful, calming, and deeply meditative.
