Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. The name means “Holy Wood” in Spanish. Palo Santo is burned in rituals by Shamans and Medicine people for its energetically cleansing and healing qualities similar to Sage. It creates a happy, fresh-smelling smoke with hints of mint and citrus that work well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects. It provides an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to Source/ God. It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open to its Magic. Palo Santo is traditionally used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain, and more. It is often used to clear the energy of space before ritual work.
This magical tree is wildcrafted and sustainably harvested by a family that has planted over 30,000 trees back into the area over the last ten years. The essential oil can only be extracted from dead trees and fallen branches using “Vapor Distillation” without dangerous chemicals or solvents. This ensures a high-quality product cared for with Love and Respect.
100% Sustainable and Natural
Palo Santo is harvested after it has fallen naturally and laid in place for a time period of three to ten years. All pieces of the tree are harvested from the Palo Santo Leafs to the roots.
The smoke from Palo Santo wood or Palo Santo Leafs helps to purify everywhere that the smoke travels. According to Shamanic teachings those who enjoy the smell are considered to be spiritually pure, while those who don't like or who feel discomfort may be holding on to somethings keeping them from being in balance.
