Palo Santo is a magical tree that grows on the coast of South America. This holy wood is treated with respect and per required practice only uses naturally fallen trees that have been lying peacefully for between 4-10 years.
Palo Santo is well known for its amazing healing properties, helping to relieve headaches and the common cold symptoms, stress and anxiety. Can also be used to inspire creativity, during new moon and full moon rituals.
Once the palo is aged and dried it is burned in a similar way to white sage to create a sacred smoke bath that is believed to combat negative energies. Smudge your home, certain objects or just smudge yourself, girl!
*Always burn palo santo responsibly, never leave unattended and use an abalone shell, agate slice or ceramic bowl to hold your smudging tool.
