The Andean indigenous Bursera Graveolens tree naturally produces aromatic hypoallergenic resin that grows in concentration with age.
The value of this sacred gift was clear from the first discovery of its lasting torchlight and beautiful scent. Bursera Graveolens lives for 40 to 90 years; after death, the wood matures four to ten more years before it falls. Only then it's consecrated as “Sacred Wood” (Palo Santo).
By respecting this cycle, we ensure the highest quality hand-chosen offerings. Each year we reserve a select portion of high resin Peruvian Palo Santo wood.
