Palo Santo is a sacred wood that comes from the magical Palo Santo tree, native to the coast of South America. Its name literally means holy wood, and it is just that. When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Traditionally, it is burned by Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans and medicine people for spiritual purifying, energy cleansing and healing. Some of the most well-known Palo Santo uses include inspiring creativity, evoking protection, infusing blessings and bringing both love and good fortune. It is a wonderful tool to use before and during your meditation.
To burn, simply light the end of the stick and let burn until there is a thick smoke trail. Once the fire is out and the stick is smoking, continue to walk around your home spreading the incense. You can also leave it smoking in a bowl.
To enjoy its natural scent unburnt, simply leave in the room you wish to fragrance.
