Palo Santo is the wood from a mystical tree that grows on the coast of Peru, South America. 'Palo Santo' has a literal translation in Spanish as "Holy Wood". It is one of the most fragrant woods in the world and has a scent of pine, mint and lemon.
Often used in smudging and cleansing rituals, Palo Santo is known to bring healing and good fortune when burned, transmitting negativity to positivity. Used in much the same way as sage, Palo Santo is a perfect companion for those who partake in meditation, yoga, reiki and other mindful and spiritual pratices.
