Palo Santo or "Holy Wood" is a sacred tree that grows on the coast of South America. Traditionally this earthy scented wood was used by shamans, healers and elders in ritual prayer, purification ceremonies and for healing purposes. The ancients believed the tree had both magical and healing properties that would only be cultivated if the tree was allowed to live a full life and given a respectful death. They would only use wood from naturally fallen palo trees that had been lying peacefully for an extended period after which they were dried, aged and eventually burned during rituals. The resulting sacred smoke bath was believed to have metaphysical properties that both purified negative energies and attracted positive ones. It is also well known for its healing properties:
- Relieves headches and helps with the common cold
- Reduces Stress & Anxiety
- Reduces inflammation and effects of allergies
Today, the harvesting of Palo Santo in Peru is strictly regulated with the same guiding principles as that of the ancients. Our manufacturers ensure this holy wood is treated with respect and per required practice only use naturally fallen trees that have been lying peacefully for a prolonged period of time. In fact, every fallen tree that is taken, is replace with a seedling working towards continuously restoring the palo santo population.
