PALO SANTO means ‘Holy Wood’ in Spanish. The tree (Bursera graveolens) is from the same family as Frankincense & Myrrh, but is primarily native to South America. Using the burning chips as incense has traditionally been used against bad energy, or for good luck; the oil was used during the time of the Incas for its reputed spiritual purifying properties, and charcoal from the burnt wood has also been used for ritual smudging. Both the smoke and oil have been used for centuries for medical purposes, and the smoke is even used as an insect (mosquito) deterrent.

Palo Santo resin, while harder to find than the sticks or chips, can be easier to use than the wood as it can easily be burned on a charcoal tablet like any other resin incense, resulting in a steady stream of sweet and woody smoke. Palo Santo blends well with benzoin, black, white or gold copal, frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood etc.
