Palo Santo Bundle

$12.00

Sustainable

Includes 1 bundle of 4 sustainably sourced Palo Santo sticks.

Our Palo Santo was sourced from trees that have naturally fallen to the forest floor and remained there for 3+ years, which is how the wood gets its scent.

Palo Santo (meaning "holy wood") is a tree that is native to Ecuador, Peru and parts of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. Palo Santo has a spiritual history dating back to the Incan era and has been used in healing and spiritual ceremonies for centuries by Indigenous Latin American cultures.

When burned, Palo Santo releases an invigorating yet grounding scent with notes of citrus, pine and mint. For hundreds of years, Shamans and healers have burned the wood during rituals to cleanse negative energy, dispel evil spirits and purify the air. Palo Santo is also known to soothe cold & flu symptoms, depression, emotional pain, headaches and other ailments. We love burning it in our shop for a sense of calm.

How to use: Light the end of one wood stick by holding a flame to it for 10-20 seconds. Once lit, gently blow out flame and the red hot end of the stick will slowly burn like incense. When finished, place on Smudge Plate or something fire-safe such as a shell and let it extinguish itself. These sticks will last through many uses.
