Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a tree that's native to the coastal regions of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. With its sweet citrusy notes of pine, mint and lemon, the wood is typically used to make incense, aromatic oils and indigenous medicine.
Palo Santo has cleansing and healing properties similar to sage and cedar wood, creating a pleasant scent that has the added benefit of repelling mosquitoes.
Simply use in the same way as you would a sage stick. Light the end of the palo santo stick ata 45 degree angle, allow to burn for a couple of minutes, then blow out. Alternatively, place a pinch of palo santo wood shavings onto a charcoal disc in a brazier to release the aroma.
