✅ Palo Santo (Holy Wood) is an intensely aromatic tree native to South America. A relative of frankincense and myrrh, Palo Santo has a sweet scent with hints of vanilla, mint, and citrus. Its name translates to “Holy Wood” in Spanish and has been used by saints and shamans alike for centuries.
✅ When burned, Palo Santo releases a fragrant smoke which many believe to uplift energy and aid in spiritual purification. Use it to promote calm, relieve stress, and dispel misfortune. Burn it before meditation, to clear thoughts or focus concentration.
✅ Burning instructions: Hold Palo Santo over an open flame, tilting the end down at a 45-degree angle. Once lit, let the wood burn visibly for one minute, relighting as necessary. Blow out the Palo Santo stick and allow to smolder. Because of Palo Santo’s particular resinous quality, the embers may self-extinguish after a few minutes. This means the wooden incense can be relit and enjoyed many times.
✅ Palo Santo was mainly used by Peruvian shamans in their religious and spiritual rituals as a tool to bring good luck, ward off any signs of negativity and as a means of getting a better spiritual connection.
✅ Our Palo Santo sticks are responsibly harvested and sustainably grown. They come from trees that die in a natural way. During this process of decomposition, the tree is compressed, secreting its oil and acquiring its medicinal and aromatic properties. The tree remains uncollected for three to four years. Cutting a Palo Santo tree without the decomposition process won’t result in the same benefits.
