Palo Santo, or Holy Stick (Bursera Graveolens) is a natural wood aromatic incense 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, and medicinal purposes. It has a pleasing citrus aroma with underlying notes of frankincense, its close relative. This Palo Santo is sustainably wild harvested from naturally fallen trees and branches that lay dead for 4-10 years before they are harvested.
