Palo Santo is a wild tree found in South America belongs to the same family as frankincense, myrrh and Copal. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon.

In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. Palo Santo is used for centuries by the Incas and indigenous people of the Andes as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing, as well as to get rid of evil spirits and misfortune.

Light palo santo stick as you do with incense. It creates a pleasant, fresh smoke that works well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects which is one of the prime uses for the people who live in Ecuador and Peru.

The Andean indigenous Bursera graveolens tree naturally produces aromatic hypoallergenic resins that grow in concentration with age, making this naturally resin-infused wood one of the most fragrant in the world. We source our Palo Santo from an authorised traditional community in Northern Peru. The National Forest and Wild Fauna Service (SERFOR) regulates harvest and commercialisation of Palo Santo to protect it from illegal harvesting that can damage and hinder its natural growth and regeneration.
