In South America and particularly around the area of the Andes in Peru and Ecuador this tree has been highly revered for it’s spiritual, medicinal and cleansing properties. From a time before the Incas this tree has been an integral part of life for the South American people as an incense. Here at Indigo Herbs we have an outstanding example of this incense in all its pureness. It has been traditionally gathered and not adulterated in any way to bring you a Palo Santo Herbal Incense which will fulfil all your requirements for a deeply satisfying, cleansing and spiritual experience.

It is thought that this incense has been used before the written word and therefore the beginnings of its history cannot be known. The use of this tree was an essential part of ceremonies and rituals for the Incas and continues to be for the Shamans of South America being used as a prerequisite before any ritual or healing has begun. It is thought to mystically erase negativity and misfortune from both people and environments with its very special aroma. The Spanish saw the importance of the Bursera graveolens tree to the South Americas and gave it the name Palo Santo meaning ‘Holy Wood’. The legend related to this tree tells how a man called Cosokait falls in love with a young maiden but his feelings are not reciprocated. Cosokait falls tragically ill and even though he is at the point of death the young woman still will not see him. He promises that he’ll always be with the girl as protection and will never leave her being in her presence at every step. Eventually due to a high fever Cosokait dies but during the last phase of his life he constantly repeats the name of the girl he’s in love with. Due to his single minded devotion and virtue a tree sprouts directly where Cosokait is buried. The tree is that of Palo Santo and has all the sweet qualities and promises of protection that Cosokait promised to the young maiden.

This truly special tree cannot be just cut to be used for its alchemical properties. When Palo Santo is alive and growing the scent is totally devoid in the wood. In a life that usually lasts for around 80 years it is only when the tree has been dead for 4-10 years, and totally untouched where it has grown, that the wood creates its special properties. If a branch is cut and dried it will not have any of the assets that makes Palo Santo exceptional. It is through the chemical changes, like a slow cure, that gives Palo Santo its spiritually beneficial merits and transfers through its smoke the transcendent qualities. Palo Santo grows in the wild as well as being cultivated. It has a grey bark and can grow to a height of around 5-6 meters. Leaves are a mid-green and sprout opposite each other on spines with small white flowers sprouting from the same apex as the leaf spines.

Natural incense resins are simple and easy to use. The resins, dried leaves and woods need to be burnt to release their aromatic smoke. This smoke is a 100% pure and a great natural way to perfume a room. The resin is burnt on small charcoal disks, the disks need to be set in a heat resistant container for safety purposes. We recommend a purpose made incense burner that is made from brass.

The charcoal disk is lit and as it smoulders and turns grey the natural incense resins can be added. Additional incense can be added until the charcoal has burnt down. This incense experience is aromatic, heady and sensual. Why not bring out your inner perfume maker and enjoy blending different resins together to create the ideal aroma for an occasion. For full instructions go to our How to blend and use Incense page.

1. Take a lighter or match to a Charcoal disk, and when it is fully alight then set it safely into a charcoal disk holder, or heat resistant receptacle.

2. When the charcoal disk has turned grey and ash like, then add a couple of tears of plant resin, powder, bark or chips.

3. This plant matter will begin to smolder and release an aromatic smoke.

4. Set the lid on the charcoal burner, and enjoy the sensual experience of the aroma pervading the room.

5. Add more incense when required.  

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

This Palo Santo Incense is  the wood of the Bursera graveolens tree and comes from Peru. The bark is stripped and the wood shaved into very small pieces that can be used as incense. The Palo Santo trees used for this incense are all grown in a plantation and are not cut from the wild rainforest. All trees parts that are used come from a natural coppicing process and the trees are not killed as part of this process unless they have reached the end of their lives. This Palo Santo Incense is completely pure with no foreign bodies found within. All processes comply with GMP standards and are quality assured by Indigo Herbs.

Brilliant service and superior products
Really pleased with the astragalus. Keep ordering it as I've been recommending it to everyone. Seems to be keeping bad chests and nasty tonsillitis at bay ( my son suffers terribly with both and especially tonsillitis due to very large and prominent tonsils). 2 minor colds since October which have amounted to nothing. Thumbs up all round 👍👍👍
