History and Origin

Palo santo is a tree from the Burseraceae family, the same family as myrrh and frankincense. We can find it in Central America and South America. It can measure up to 25 meters in height. As all the trees and shrubs from the Bursera gender, Bursera graveolens is a tree with a thin bark which produces a scented gum rich in oleoresin. Palo santo is traditionally used in smudge spiritual rituals to clear negativity from a person or a space. Il is also used for stomach ache and rheumatism and as a sudorific. Be careful not to confuse it with Bulnesia sarmientoi, another tree also known as Palo Santo.
