Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America 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. It is an aromatic wood used for centuries by the Incas and other cultures as a spiritual remedy. Used for incense and smudging it creates a pleasant, fresh smelling smoke with hints of mint and citrus with underlying notes of frankincense. Thought to purge bad spirits, it is also said that it enhances creativity and brings good fortune. Palo Santo is enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage and Cedar.
