Palo Santo: Holy Wood Sticks
Palo Santo is a sacred wood that is sustainably harvested in the Amazon rainforest from trees that fell naturally. When it is burned, it releases the sacred wood’s oils to cleanse the space and people it comes into contact with, attract positive energy, and it is also believed to heal people on both physical and more subtle levels. This increases the ability for people to concentrate and it enhances meditation. The aroma is similar to tree resin, but unique for a reason that many will not expect. Shamanic wisdom explains that an attraction to the aroma of Palo Santo is a sign of emotional and spiritual purity.
Aroma: Woody resin.
Intention: To purify and dispel negative energy.
Palo Santo sticks come from the bursera graveolens tree in the South American rainforest and this truly unique aromatic wood is burned as incense. For centuries, before it was introduced to North America, it was used by Shamans to clear negative energy, attract positive energy, re-establish peace and balance, enhance concentration and meditation, and heal people on physical and spiritual levels.
Name explanation: Palo Santo means “holy wood.” This name was given to this mystical tree when Spanish monks explored the Amazon, tested its qualities and realized its hidden properties.
