Palo Santo, literally meaning “holy wood” in Spanish, is a tree that is widely distributed throughout Central and South America. Palo Santo is used in South America in much the same way white sage is used in North America- to combat negative energy and to cleanse the space. Palo Santo is different than many of the other burnable herbs as it is fragrant in its raw form and does not necessarily need to be lit, though it usually is when being used for ceremonial purposes. Palo Santo is often used by Amazonian shamans in sacred plant spirit ceremonies; the rising smoke of the lit sticks is believed to enter the energy field of ritual participants to clear misfortune, negative thoughts, and to chase away evil spirits. Its use reportedly dates back to the Inca era.
Palo Santo has several uses, but most commonly it is burned to cleanse & clear negative and stagnant energies from a space and to draw in positive energies. Its smoke can also be used to cleanse crystals and your own personal energy, as well.
Its scent is uplifting and is much brighter than Sage, making it a great alternative. Great to use before meditation and yoga, or spending a night in relaxing.
Each Palo Santo stick is about 4-5".
