Natural Palo Santo | 3 Pack
Palo Santo is a sacred tree which grows in select parts of South America. It's name translates to 'Holy wood'. It has been used for centuries by shamans in ritual prayer, ceremonies and healing. It is known for it's metaphysical properties of purification and clearing negative energies.
Ancient healers believed the Palo Santo tree had both magical and healing properties that would only be cultivated if the tree was allowed to live a full life and given a respectful death. They would only use wood from naturally fallen Palo trees that had been lying peacefully for an extended period after which they were then dried, aged and eventually burned in rituals.
Alkmista Palo Santo has been harvested in line with these guiding principles. Alkimista Palo Santo is hand-cut per traditional methods and as a result sizes and shapes of each stick may vary.
Our suppliers ensure this holy wood is treated with respect. They only use naturally fallen trees that have been lying peacefully for between 4-10 years. Every fallen tree that is taken, is also replaced with a seedling working towards continuously restoring the palo santo population.
How to use:
Hold your Palo Santo stick at a 45-degree angle pointing the tip down towards the flame. Allow the stick to burn for 30- 60 seconds then blow it out.
Gently wave your Palo Santo stick in the air allowing the smoke to move. You can either place the stick in an incense burner and leave it to smoulder, or you can use it for smudging. Continue to blow on the Palo Santo to produce more smoke.
When finished place fire-proof bowl - the glow will end on its own, unless you continue to blow, producing smoke.
As always smudging should be performed with intention and respect. Palo Santo is a natural resource that supports your intentions and connects you to your inner wisdom.
