Palo Santo - Bursera Gaveolens
Traditionally used of ‘smudging’ to drive away negative energies from one’s aura or home.
When using the wood as incense, the Palo Santo wood sticks are burnt on their own. Once the stick is on fire, it will burn independently for a minute or so then extinguish itself. The short burning period is adequate to produce smoke that will give your house a sweet smelling aroma. The slow burning nature of the wood makes it possible to use on several occasions.
The wood can be grounded into powder and used as a component of making incense mixtures. The wood is also used in homeopathic treatment for anxiety and panic attacks, as a respiratory treatment for asthma, cough and colds, for migraines, headaches and also in massage therapy to address pain and inflammation of joints and muscles.
