Incausa – Certified Responsive and Faire Trade – High Resin Palo Santo Wood Stick – 10 to 15cm
Palo Santo is known as the “holy wood”. Bursera graveolens is a wild tree found in areas from Mexico to Peru & belonging to the same family as Frankincense and Myrrh. This tree produces incredibly aromatic and hypoallergenic resin that only grows stronger in concentration with age.
For centuries, Palo Santo wood has been valued for its lasting torchlight, its unparalleled scent, along with its physical and spiritual benefits. From the ancient times of Inca civilization until today, it has been common for many South American indigenous traditions to harvest this holy wood, after its natural death and throughout its maturing process. Considered one of the most fragrant woods in the world, the scent of Palo Santo helps to raise your vibration & delivers you a deeper connection to the Earth.
