Palo Santo is from the Bursera Graveolens tree. In Spanish it is called Palo Santo, meaning “Holy Wood” or “Holy Stick”.
The Bursera Graveonlens tree is native to Peru and Venezuela and it is in the same family of trees that produce Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. As the Bursera Graveolens tree is a part of the citrus family, Palo Santo and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon.

To use Palo Santo, light your specimen with a lighter or a match while tilting the Palo Santo to about a 45-degree angle until it catches fire. Allow the tip to burn for 30 seconds to one minute and them blow it out. Using the smoke, the Palo Santo produces, move around the space you would like to cleans, allowing it to make its way into corners. If needed, you may move the smoke by waving it with your hand, or with a tool such as a feather or a fan. When finished, place the stick in a fire proof container. The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going. Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
