100% Bursera Graveolens
The Palo Santo tree (Bursera Graveolens) is native to the coast of South America and is related to the Copal, Frankincense and Myrrh trees. Palo Santo in Spanish means “Holy Wood” and you can see why it was given this name when you breathe in its heavenly scent.
Palo Santo is traditionally utilised by Native American cultures in spiritual ceremonies and rituals for deep healing, clearing negative energy and restoring balance and peace. Palo Santo creates a deeply rich smoke when burned and can be enjoyed as a natural incense. Additionally, the smoke works well at keeping away mosquitos and other flying insects.
Bring the plant medicine of Palo Santo into your daily practices.
Burn to ground yourself, cleanse your space, welcome positive energy into your life and deepen your connection to the Earth.
Our Palo Santo is ethically sourced in Peru from a protected forest reserve where only sustainable harvesting practices are permitted and local indigenous communities are supported.
Directions: Ignite the tip of your Palo Santo and allow it to burn for about 30 seconds before gently shaking out the flame to release its smoke. Set a positive intention as you guide the smoke of the Palo Santo around your body, home or anywhere you’d like to cleanse. Hold an abalone shell or a bowl underneath your Palo Santo to catch any ash. Keep a window open so that the smoke can escape along with any negative energy. When you have finished, give thanks and safely rest your Palo Santo on the edge of an abalone shell or fireproof bowl so that the ash is collected as it continues to gently burn until naturally extinguishing. Use as often as you desire, Palo Santo has a nice slow burn so one stick will provide many cleanses.
Always burn in a well ventilated environment and practise respectful caution when working with fire and smoke. Keep an eye on your Palo Santo until it has naturally extinguished.
