Palo Santo Wood (Bursera graveolens) is an aromatic wood used by the Incas and other cultures as a spiritual remedy. It has been valued for its therapeutic properties for centuries. The translation of Palo Santo from Spanish is ‘holy wood’. It is harvested from an indigenous tree in arid areas of South America. The tree belongs to the same family as myrrh and frankincense, which are classified as Burseraceae. Palo Santo is used for a wide variety of purposes ranging from medicinal tea, incense and palo santo essential oil production, to home furniture and flooring.
Traditionally the sweet smelling aroma of the palo santo sacred wood is harnessed through the use of ‘smudging’ to drive away negative energies from one’s aura or home. It is believed that when the palo santo incense is lit it eliminates stagnant or negative energies and purifies the space, bringing uplifting positive energies, higher vibrations, and good luck. The soothing aroma of the smoke is often used to give your house a sweet smelling aroma and feel. Some people harness the power of palo santo wood for homeopathic purposes. It has been attributed to having the capability of assisting in the healing of colds, arthritis, and asthma among other diseases.
