Ethnobotanical History: Small pieces of the Palo Santo wood are also used by south American tribes as a form of natural incense, which is used in spiritual rituals. The wood ignites easily despite being so dense, and produces a fragrant smoke. Palo santo is also used medicinally, as well as for its timber, which is engraved, used to make posts and for charcoal production. Its oil is used in natural cosmetics while its resin is used to make varnish. American beer micro brewer Dogfish Head regularly produces a beer called "Palo Santo Marron" that is aged in tanks made of palo santo wood.
