Palo Santo has a wonderful relaxing effect and a religious tone to its experience. One of the wonders of the world in my opinion. This wood has many different scents, as if each piece is an individual with their own character. Palo Santo is related to both frankincense and myrrh. The name, Palo Santo which means “wood of the saints,” is used to clean bad energy from a place and to promote good fortune. Woody, slight floral, amber and even a coconut note is present at times, can’t be beat by any other natural incense in my book.
