Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon. Palo Santo Wood Sticks are ideal for use with smoke cleansing. Palo Santo is known for its properties to aid in clearing bad energy, providing spiritual protection and bringing good luck.
Palo Santo is enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage. It is a strong medicine that has been popularised for its heavenly presence in keeping energies grounded and clear. It creates a pleasant, fresh smoke and provides an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and ritual. It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open to its magic.
All our Palo Santo products have been traditionally, legally and ethically gathered and harvested. Traditionally a Palo Santo tree lasts for around 80 years and the wood is only used once the tree has been dead for 4-10 years (when the tree is alive, the scent is completely devoid in the wood). It is only once the wood has been untouched where it has grown that it will then create its exceptional properties. All trees that have been used are harvested through a sustainable and natural process.
Burn as you would incense or sage sticks; light, allow to burn momentarily, blow out flame and fan the ember. May need to be re-lit. Cleanse persons, places, or property with the smoke. Traditionally used with Abalone Shell.
