Sustainably sourced and harvested from local communities in Peru and Ecuador. I only source & stock Palo Santo products that are wildcrafted and sustainably harvested and tested by me. Because Palo Santo wood can only be harvested after it has naturally fallen and left to dry for some time, the product is extracted from Ecuadorian and Peruvian reserves. We exclusively utilize these botanicals as a means of supporting the social and economic welfare of local communities, ensuring the highest quality products possible, and creating meaningful relationships..
What is Palo Santo?
Bursera graveolens, known in Spanish as Palo Santo, is a wild tree native to coastal South America. Belonging to the same family as copal, myrrh and frankincense, Palo Santo literally translates to “Holy Wood”. It was once renowned among Incan cultures and is now traditionally used by present-day shamans and healers for its purification attributes. When burned, the smoke is believed to provide medicinal and therapeutic healing energies, giving you a more profound connection to your being.
How do you use and/or burn Palo Santo?
Use a lighter to ignite your Palo Santo stick, allowing it to burn for approximately one minute. Waft the smoke around the desired area or anywhere else you desire clear energy. From there, you may place the stick in an incense burner and leave to smoulder. When burned, the smoke is believed to provide medicinal and therapeutic healing energies, giving you a more profound connection to your being.
Once finished, deposit the used stick in a bowl of metal, glass or clay, where it will eventually burn out. Please remember to exercise caution when working with fire.
What is smudging?
Smudging is a ritual through which we cleanse the energy of a physical space, object or person. Begin with a clear and simple intention. Once you have your intention firmly in mind, light the Palo Santo stick as per the instructions above. Walk around the area, fanning the smoke and focusing on clearing away negative energy as the Palo Santo stick burns down.
