Palo Santo, originates from Mesoamerica and South America, means “holy wood”. It is the most effective incense which is used for energy cleansing. Usually it burns before practice of meditation or energy in order to cleanse the field. Amazon shamans use it before they start sacred plant ceremonies so its smoke wards off evil spirits while cleaning the negative thoughts of every participants.
On the other hand by its soothing affect it helps fighting with common cold, asthma, anxiety, stress and depresion. Although it has a very nice flavour it keeps off flies.
