Holy Wood | Palo Santo


Palo Santo is a plant native to South America that has a long history of use by indigenous people for healing and ceremonial purposes. It was used during the time of the Incas for its reputed spiritual purifying properties.

The tree belongs to the same family as frankincense and myrrh and has a beautiful sweet and woodsy aroma when burnt as an incense. It creates a pleasant, fresh smelling smoke with hints of mint and citrus. It is also commonly used as a smudge stick. The wood is believed to bring many benefits including healing and spiritual properties.

Our Palo Santo Wood is sustainably harvested from fallen tress. Only wood that has been found to have died naturally in the forest is used after laying untouched in its natural habitat for many years. This process permits the sacred, medicinal and mystical properties of the wood to manifest.
