Palo Santo, or Holy Wood, (Bursera graveolens) is a natural wood known for centuries by the Incas and other South American indigenous cultures as a spiritual remedy. Burnt much like a sage smudge, for purifying, cleansing, and clearing negative energies. It creates an amazing aroma when burnt and the smoke is said to raise your vibration, enhance creativity, and clear the way for positive energy to flow.
We source our Palo Santo from Peru. It is sustainably harvested only from naturally fallen branches. Peru has strict regulations to ensure the sustainability of the supply.
Available as a single stick or a bundle of 5
How to use Palo Santo:
Take one stick and light it with a candle, match or lighter.
Allow the Palo Santo stick to burn for 30 seconds to a minute, then carefully blow it out.
Move around the space in which you wish to clear the energy - be it your bedroom, office, car or your entire home - allowing the smoke to waft around each area.
As you take the Palo Santo stick into the corners of each room or space you are cleansing, set an intention to cleanse and bring positive energy in.
A rich smell will fill the air, bringing peace and clarity to the moment.
Once you feel you have cleansed your space, place the Palo Santo stick in a fireproof bowl and allow the embers to burn out.
Remember to always exercise care and caution when working with fire.
Note: These sticks are hand cut so the sizes vary, and not all are a uniform shape.
