Smoked chips Palo Santo
Palo Santo. Sacred wood
In Spanish, the wood of the Bursera graveolens is called Palo Santo (sacred wood). Especially in South America, the wood has been used for thousands of years for incense to take advantage of the cleansing and calming effect in the physical as well as spiritual sense. Palo Santo is therefore often used before a yoga class or before a relaxation session or meditation, many find the scent particularly beneficial in times of stress. The characteristic scent of the resin develops only when it glows: warm-woody and slightly sweet with a hint of coconut. Usually the wood is offered in the form of larger sticks, here it comes in fine splinters that are suitable as a component for self-assembled incense blends, which are smoked on the screen. However, you can also smoke the palo santo splinters solo directly on the glowing charcoal.
Palo Santo tree occurs naturally in Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula, as well as in parts of South America such as Peru and Venezuela. Trade in its wood is highly regulated, as the Palo Santo tree is now a protected species. The palo santo used here comes from forest regions in Peru that are sustainably managed, and is obtained there from fallen trees.
