Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a wild tree native from South America.
Palo Santo literally means holy wood and just as white sage which was predominantly used by native Indians in South America, Palo Santo was used by South American shamans who believed it had similar properties capable of resetting energy that was tainted by negativity or conflict. It is also known to neutralise issues before they ever start.
It was also used during ceremonies to clear the aura and to heal from negative influences. In Europe too, people choose to buy the holy wood to clean their homes or just for the fragrance in its purest form.
The fragrance of burning Palo Santo can be described as a warm, wooden and light aroma with a sweet touch that sometimes slip trough. In comparison with white sage, Palo Santo gives off a very mild odour. We can’t imagine anybody who wouldn’t be charmed by the pleasant and natural aroma.
This Palo Santo wood is originated from Peru and Ecuador and supplied to us after the check by the local government. These trees are very rare and therefore not cut down, its wood is taken only from the fallen trees.
