Palo Santo comes from the coast of South America in Peru. It is a mystical tree and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon. Palo Santo is enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties; similar to Sage and Cedar.
Palo Santo is traditionally used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain and more. This Essential Oil is great for Aromatherapy and can also be used during massage work to assist in healing.
To use this Holy Wood stick, just burn one end of it. It usually just stops burning after a couple of minutes like a sage leaf. You could even just smudge it on a incense tray to put it off.
