PALO SANTO | Sacred Wood Incense
Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows near the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. In Spanish, the name translates to “Holy Wood - Tree of Life."
Palo Santo is traditionally used to purify bacteria from the air and above all, to clear bad energy and spirits that stagnate within spaces. It is also commonly used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain and more. The oil can also be used during massage work to seal intentions while calling in Spirit Allies for support and protection.
BE MINDFUL that most Palo Santo you see in the markets is not ethically harvested from naturally fallen and dead trees, nor directly supporting indigenous families to receive livable wages.
We aim to provide sustainable Palo Santo to support the preservation of native lands, and culture that surrounds the sacred and ceremonial harvest of this sacred tree. Supporting proper harvesting supports the preservation of indigenous lands and consciousness.
We work with a native family from the Chiclayo region in Northern Peru, who have been stewards of Palo Santo's native habitat for hundreds of years. They ethically wildharvest naturally fallen trees that have aged for at least 3-5 years on the ground, while also replanting in the wild. It is within this aging process that the protective and mystical resins develop.
Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then blow out. Move about your workspace, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy. The rich smell will also bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings. When finished, place the stick in a fire proof bowl of metal, glass or clay. The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going. Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
