Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. The wood is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. In Spanish, Palo Santo literally means 'Holy Wood'. The wood is burned in spiritual ceremonies by Shamans for its energetically cleansing and healing properties. It creates a pleasant, fresh smelling smoke with hints of mint and citrus that work well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects.
