Palo Santo Wood
Palo Santo is known as The Sacred Wood. The Andean indigenous Bursera graveolens tree naturally produces aromatic hypoallergenic resin that grows in concentration with age. The value of this sacred gift was clear from the first discovery of its lasting torchlight and beautiful scent. Bursera graveolens lives for 40 to 90 years; after death, the wood matures four to ten more years before it falls. Only then it’s consecrated as “Sacred Wood” (Palo Santo). For centuries, Palo Santo wood has been valued for its lasting torchlight, its unparalleled scent, along with its physical and spiritual benefits.
