I burn Palo Santo wood (aka: Holy Wood) whenever I’m about to do energy work or meditate. The wood is native to Central America, including Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua, as well as Colombia, Ecuador, the Galapagos, and Peru. The wood is considered sacred in these areas so harvesting can only be done by permit and under strict government supervision. The oil from the trees are only collected once the tree dies. The wood matures the longer it is dead, which yields a more potent essential oil.
