Palo Santo or Holy Wood is a citrus tree used as incense by many cultures in South America. Including but not limited to shamanic tribes. The people of South America’s main use for palo santo is to keep mosquitos and other flying insects at bay! The Palo Santo tree is closely related to many other sacred trees such as Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. All of which, are celebrated for their amazing mix of terpenes and host of health benefits. Said to have cleansing properties similar to sage and cedar. This is due to its amazing blend of terpenes such as pinene, myrcene, limonene, and menthol to name a few. These terpenes yield an uplifting scent that is just as pleasant as the effect it has on your body.
Many believe the smoke allows for a deeper connection to source energy. It is traditionally used for relieving flu symptoms, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, stress, inflammation, and many more. Great for calming the immune and nervous systems.
