Palo Santo Smudge Sticks Holy Wood
*Palo Santo Smudge Sticks
Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), also known as "holy wood," has a very fresh and resinous smell with hints of mint and citrus - proving to be one of the most fragrant woods in the world. It is often used in ceremonial practices for cleansing, protection, inspiring creativity, and for infusing blessing and love, or simply for the pleasant aroma.
Our Palo Santo Smudge Sticks are from an ethical Wildcrafter in Peru, and they were gathered in a responsibly, ecologically sound and respectful way. Only the fallen branches and twigs of the tree are harvested, which is regulated by the government of Peru to ensure that the trees do not become overharvested. Palo Santo is on the endangered list; therefore, our supplier does replant Palo Santo trees on the land to meet increased demand in the future.
We have various sizes depending on your needs, Each 1/2 pound contains approx. 28-33 smudge sticks.
Also related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal.
It is an aromatic wood used for centuries by the Incas and other cultures as a spiritual remedy. Used for incense and smudging it creates a pleasant, fresh smelling smoke with hints of mint and citrus with underlying notes of frankincense. Thought to purge bad spirits, it is also said that it enhances creativity and brings good fortune. We sell it by weight and size of sticks may vary between 1.5" to 2.75".
Peruvians harvest fallen branches and twigs of the B. graveolens tree, a practice that is regulated by the government of Peru, so trees are not cut for wood harvesting.
Clean your house, declutter and then light the leaves and waft it about, as if cleansing the air. It is instantly effective. Sage is anti-bacterial naturally disinfecting.
To use, light one end of the herb stick and blow it out to produce fragrant smoke. Waft the smoke throughout the space you want to cleanse - or over yourself to cleanse negativity and other unwanted energies. Never leave unattended and do not lay on anything that can catch fire.
The heartwood of Palo Santo is used in aromatherapy, meditation, energetic purification of space (a.k.a. smudging), preparing tea, and as an effective repellent for mosquitoes. The uplifting and pleasantly aromatic smoke enhances the vibration of any space, facilitates inner-creativity, and attracts positive energy for those open to its magic!
