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 as White Ceremonial Sage is used in North America- to combat negative energy and to cleanse the space. Palo Santo is different from other smudging materials as it is fragrant in its raw form and does not need to be lit, unless being used for ceremonial purposes.

Palo Santo is often used by Amazonian shamans in sacred plant spirit ceremonies; the rising smoke of a lit stick 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 Wood: A sustainably-sourced wood from Ecuador and Peru in association with native communities who oversee ethical trade within their bountiful natural forests.
