Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. In Spanish, the name means “Holy Wood”. The magic of Palo Santo is in the alchemical process that happens after the death of a limb or a tree. In order for the Palo Santo to gain its magical and medicinal properties it must die, but not just any death. The Palo Santo trees live for 80 to 90 years. After this death the tree must remain in its natural habitat for 4 to 10 years to complete its metamorphosis. Only then do its sacred, medicinal and mystical properties come alive. Palo Santo has been used for thousands of years in South America by shamans and healers. One of the truly great resins of Mother Earth. It has capacities in both physical and metaphysical realms.
