Burn Palo Santo & Feel the Experience

Medicinal Smoke

Throughout South America, for centuries, Palo Santo has been burned as an energy cleanser. The ritual originates from Incan tradition that says the wood’s smoke, burned during spiritual rituals and ceremonies, is medicinal. Burning these sticks is a sacred practice used by Indigenous communities of the Andes to cleanse their space and ward off evil spirits. This practice is called smudging. It is a spiritual practice where you clear your energy fields using a piece of burning Palo Santo. Like sage, which is predominantly used by Native Americans, South American shamans were convinced burning Palo Santo had similar properties capable of resetting energy that was tainted by conflict or negativity. It also is believed to neutralise issues before they ever begin. Palo Santo even has the power to draw benevolence and sacredness to a space, says Jonathan Hammond, spiritual counsellor, shamanic practitioner, and author of The Shaman’s Mind. 

“Shapeshifting requires the ability to transcend your attachments, in particular your ego attachments to identity and who you are. If you can get over your attachment to labelling yourself and your cherishing of your identity, you can be virtually anybody. You can slip in and out of different shells, even different animal forms or deity forms.” - Zeena Schreck

Look to the Future through an Ancient Method

Palo Santo… Closing Thoughts

Palo Santo is a sacred tree native to South America. Indigenous cultures from Latin America have used its wood in traditional spiritual and healing ceremonies for hundreds of years. A cousin of both frankincense and myrrh, Palo Santo literally means "holy wood," and it's a rightful name given its history. When it burns, the aromatic wood releases lemon, mint, and pine notes—an invigorating, grounding fragrance that is believed to have a number of benefits. Healers and shamans, often called Curanderos, traditionally used Palo Santo’s energising and healing properties to cleanse negative energy, purify air, and dispel evil spirits. The wood has also long been used therapeutically to soothe flu and cold symptoms, low mood, emotional issues, and other ailments.

It is believed that Palo Santo’s uplifting aroma is conducive to relaxation and meditation and that it both boosts creativity and brings good fortune. Interestingly, these properties are solely found when a Palo Santo tree dies naturally and is given time to decompose for 5 to 8 years. That gives the oils in the wood enough time to fully mature before it is harvested and processed into sticks or essential oils.
