Bursera Graveolens, known in Spanish as Palo Santo (“holy wood”) is a wild tree from Latin America.

Palo Santo also helps with concentration during meditation.
The sweetly woody, balsamic distillate has been a constituent of incense and perfumes since biblical times. Some claim that this is the myrrh to which the Song of Solomon referred.
