Palo Santo is an aromatic tree that grows in the Ecuadorian dry forests and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal, and has scents of of pine, mint and lemon. In Spanish Palo Santo means “Holy Wood,” because it is used by shamans to cure physical and spiritual ailments. We only use naturally fallen branches to conserve these slow growing, fragrant trees.
