Palo Santo or Holy Wood (from the Bursera Graveolens tree) is an aromatic natural product. Its smoke is used as a repellent to keep off mosquitoes, ants, and other insects. It held high value among the Incas priests and for thousands of years, shamans were using it for healing many diseases, for cleaning and dissolving bad energies or bad spirits. For this reason, the Spanish called it »Santo« - Holy. The scent of Palo Santo is extremely soothing and transmits a powerful energy. The tree grows for about 40 years and then dies. Then, it has to lie down for about 10 more years before it can be processed.
