Holy plant to enhance the senses

Bursera graveolens AKA "palo santo" ("holy wood") is a wild tree inhabits the South American Gran Chaco region. The wood smells lovely and can be burned as insence.

The tree belongs to the same family as frankincense and myrrh. It is widely used in folk medicine for stomach ache, as sudorific, and as liniment for rheumatism.

Palo Santo oil was used during the time of the Incas for its reputed spiritual purifying properties. Today, palo santo oil may be applied to the body (such as at the base of the skull or on the spine) to increase relaxation, similar to aromatherapy.

Great for masking the smell of musty cigarettes you used to smoke inside, before you discovered the joys of vaping.
