"There’s something so special about the aroma of Palo Santo – it’s comforting and feels amazing to burn after a long day interacting with lots of different energies. Known as the “holy wood”, Palo Santo is considered one of the most fragrant woods in the wood coming from the Bursera Gravolens tree found from Mexico to Peru. It’s in the same family of frankincense and myrrh – " Lala Lopez (Palo Santo 101)
