Palo Santo comes from trees that grow on the coast of South America. It is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal because it is dense with heavy resins that burn like incense. In Spanish, the words translate to “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. It is a strong medicine that has been popularized for its heavenly presence in keeping energies grounded and clear. When burned, it produces a fragrant smoke scent that helps prepare you for mediation and a deep connection to spirit.
