Words by Anny Schneider

In Central and South America, Palo santo means "sacred wood".

Exactly, its burned wood or its anointed oil are used by shamans and medicine men in purification rituals and ceremonies.

From the same botanical family of Burseraceae as oliban and myrrh, it acts in depth to reharmonize the body and the spirit.

It is an effective analgesic and anti-inflammatory (aches, sprains, rheumatism, joint pain), to be diluted in a vegetable oil (sesame, olive).

Powerful nerve regulator and general tonic, it soothes tensions and helps to regain strength during convalescence.

It is also used to repel mosquitoes and other biting insects.
