(Bursera graveolens) is a tree that's native to Peru, Ecuador, and other South American countries. It grows in dry tropical forests and produces very fragrant resin. In Spanish, palo santo means “holy wood.” For thousands of years, the wood, resin, and oil have been used for medicinal purposes.
While sage rids spaces of ALL energies, Palo Santo is said to cleanse the negative energy away and bring in the good. It's got a fresh smell that's sweet and subtle with hints of mint and citrus. Medicinally, this wood contains natural terpenes that can have a positive impact on free radical damage.
