PALO SANTO means 'Holy Wood' in Spanish. The tree (Bursera graveolens) is from the same family as Frankincense & Myrrh, but is primarily native to South America. Using the burning chips as incense has traditionally been used against bad energy, or for good luck. The oil was used during the time of the Incas for its reputed spiritual purifying properties, and charcoal from the burnt wood has also been used for ritual smudging. Both the smoke and oil have been used for centuries for medical purposes, and the smoke is even used as an insect (mosquito) deterrent. Our Palo Santo chips have a gorgeous, rich scent, with an undercurrent of frankincense, to which it is related.
