Palo Santo literally means holy wood and is, just as white sage, originate from the native Indians in South America. Centuries ago they already used it during ceremonies to clear the aura and to heal from negative influences. In Europe too, people choose to buy the holy wood to clean their houses or just for the fragrances in its purest form. The fragrance can be described as a warm, wooden and lightly aroma with a sweet touch that sometimes slip trough. In comparison with white sage (that is also used for the same purpose), Palo Santo gives off a very mild odor.
