Palo Santo (translation “Holy Wood”) has been used since ancient times in Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru and other South American countries in ceremonies and rituals as an incense for purifying and clearing or warding off of hucha (Quecha for heavy energy), and as a spiritual gift or offering.
This Palo Santo Sacred Spray is made with the rare oil of Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) which is distilled in small quantities from ecologically and sustainably harvested wood gathered in the Machalilla Park on Ecuador’s Pacific coast. It has a fine citrus aroma with underlying notes reminiscent of frankincense, its close relative.
An alternative approach to smokeless smudging, this spray can be used to clear a space, yourself and others as well as your sacred objects. An excellent way to center yourself before meditating, conducting a class or session, and more.
Palo Santo has energetic capabilities in the physical realm as well. The aroma and energy of palo santo has a calming/relaxing effect. Many people experience relief from stress, headaches, illness, anxiety, grief, and pain. It is also considered an effective insect repellent.
Palo Santo undergoes a very special physical and metaphysical process before becoming “holy wood.” First it must die the natural death of a wise old limb or tree – the wood is never cut from a living tree. Palo Santo trees live for 80 to 90 years, and after its death the tree must remain in its natural habitat for 4 to 10 years for its sacred, medicinal and mystical properties to awaken.
