Palo Santo also known as ‘Holy Wood’ (Scientific Name: Bursera Graveolens) is blowing up everywhere! a few months ago I had never heard of this and now I can’t get enough of the beautiful smell of burning these sticks and incense!
Palo Santo is a plant native to South America and has a long history of use by native people for healing and ceremonial purposes. It has a beautiful sweet and woodsy aroma when burnt. The wood is believed to bring many benefits including healing and spiritual properties. Great for clearing bad energy – I find I sweet and calming and burn it most days at home. It is energetically cleansing & healing, some say with properties similar to sage. and I LOVE it! everyone knows Im all about the good vibes right!
