Palo Santo or "Holy Wood" has been used as a sacred smudge for thousands of years. Healers and Shamans use the smudge sticks in rituals and ceremonies to clear bad energies, bless space, invoke energetic protection, and for therapeutic healing.
Light the same way as white sage. Once lit, the sticks will burn for a few moments before it releases sacred smoke.
Its pleasant aroma is calming and is often preferred over the scent of white sage which some find to be too strong, too energizing, or too similar to the scent of other herbs that some still consider taboo.
Our Palo Santo smudge sticks are sustainably harvested by natives of Peru. The harvesting of this wood is regulated by the Peruvian government and collected under supervision so that no trees are destroyed or harmed in the process. This Palo Santo is collected from branches and twigs that have naturally shed from the trees and are not left behind to help prevent waste
Sustainable harvesting of Palo Santo sacred wood prevents destruction of the forests and leaves the ecosystem of forest inhabitants intact.
Because this item is sustainably harvested with friendly packaging and also supports the local natives, we feel that the energy that flows through from purchase to blessing and burning is truly aligned with sacred and divine intention.
