At Sacred Body Rituals we practice deep LOVE for Palo Santo - Bursera Graveolens. We are honored to have received the calling to work with this magical plant. We are mystified every day by this incredible wood, not only by it's healing power & sublime aroma, but also by the incredible community growing worldwide inspired & connected by this plant.
