Countless benefits, that’s what gives us the Palo Santo. The Healing Tree captivated the Spanish during the conquest of the Americas and even today, four hundred years later, keeps dazzling us. As incredible as it may sound, all parts of the tree are used in one way or another, which means that there’s absolutely no waste product.
Bursera Graveloens is the scientific name of the Palo Santo, which means “bag full of oil.” Studies have shown that its chemical composition contains some elements that act against influenza and, on the other hand, work as antiseptics, sedatives and antiviral, among others. Therefore, and rightly so, many claim that this tree is a real source of natural medicine.
