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