                                                                                                 WHAT IS PALO SANTO?
Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. It is part of the citrus family and has a sweet aromatic notes of Pine, Mint, and a crisp citrus Lemon Fragrance, with a soft fragrance Woody Scent, that mingles brilliantly together making a perfect rich aroma.  The smell will bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings, this tree has become a symbol of love and kindness.  It is known to bring Healing and Good Fortune when burned and is often used in Smudging and Cleansing Rituals.        

 When lit, the wood produces smoke which is used for Clearing Evil Spirits, Misfortune, or Negativity. It is said that this tradition has been an integral part of life for the Incas and continues to be to this day. Palo Santo is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal Trees plus it has similar properties to Sage and Cedar.

When Palo Santo is alive and growing the Scent is totally devoid in the wood. In a life that usually lasts for around 80 years, it is only when the tree has been dead for 4-10 years does it begin to develop and create its exceptional special properties.  It has a grey bark and can grow to a height of around 5-6 meters. Its leaves are a mid-green and has small white flowers. The bark is stripped, and the wood shaved into very small pieces that can be used as Incense.
