Palo Santo sticks come from the Bursera Graveolens tree in the South American Rain Forest and this truly unique aromatic wood is burned as incense. For centuries, before it was introduced to North America, it was used by shamans to clear negative energy, attract positive energy, re-establish peace and balance, enhance concentration and meditation, and heal people on physical and spiritual levels.
The wood is hand-harvested from Palo Santo trees that died naturally in the Amazon Rain Forest. Strict local laws forbid logging Palo Santo and the wood is not removed from the Rain Forest until the tree rested for several years, allowing its oils and properties to develop. Every fallen tree is replaced with a seedling to rejuvenate the Palo Santo population and natural biodiversity.
Palo Santo’s spirit is often generous with its healing powers as its smoke enters the energy field of those it reaches to clear negative thoughts and misfortune. It is a delicate process of respect, however, and is one of the reasons that the tree cannot be cut down and is only harvested years after it has fallen from natural causes. Its unique fragrance and aromatic oils are enhanced over the years in a natural metamorphosis as it rests on the Amazon Rain Forest floor. To put it simply, many find the aroma of Palo Santo irresistible.
