PALO SANTO

Palo santo quite literally means "holy wood". It is a sacred tree native to South America where Indigenous Latin American cultures have used its wood in traditional healing and spiritual ceremonies for centuries.

Shamans and healers, traditionally used the energizing and healing properties of palo santo to purify air, dispel evil spirits, and cleanse negative energy. The wood has also long been used therapeutically to soothe cold and flu symptoms, depression, emotional pain, and other ailments. Interestingly, these benefits are only found when a palo santo tree dies naturally and is allowed to decompose for five to eight years. That gives the oils in the wood enough time to fully mature before it is harvested and processed into sticks or essential oils.
