The heartwood of Palo Santo (a.k.a. “holy wood”) — also known by its scientific name Bursera graveolens, is native to various regions throughout Central & South America, and has long been regarded as a sacred element in cleansing practices for centuries. To this day, it is celebrated for its restorative qualities by shamans throughout Latin America, spiritual healers, and modern-day aficionados alike.
