Palo Santo - "holy wood"

Palo Santo is the wood of the balsam tree (bursera graveolens) which is native to Central and South America (including Ecuador, Mexico and Peru). The aromatic tree has been used in many ways since the Inca era, especially wood.

When burned, especially the resinous trunk wood (impregnated with Copal resin) spreads its characteristic and pleasant balsamic-sweet scent, which is provided with a coconut note.

It is most commonly used as incense - both as an essential oil and in the form of smaller logs.

The harvest of the Palo Santo is strictly regulated by the governments, as the tree is under nature protection in most countries. Only dead wood may be used for the smoked logs and the essential oil.
