Palo Santo, the name means "Holy Wood" in Spanish. It has notes of pine, lemon, and mint. It comes from a tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. It is natural and sustainably harvested in that the essential oil can only be extracted from the dead trees and fallen branches, without the use of any toxic chemicals. It is said that the dead tree/ branches must lie dead for 4-10 years before the medicinal and mystical properties of the wood is activated.
Palo Santo is used for its healing properties and is energetically cleansing. Its scent is known to raise your vibration and is often used before mediation. It enhances creativity, brings good fortune, combats negative energy and cleanses space!
Palo Santo has many healing benefits and is traditionally used to ease flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, emotional pain, inflammation and common colds. It contains high levels of D-Limonene and Monotropenes which are useful for cancer symptoms.
Burning instructions: Use a lighter/match to ignite your Palo Santo Stick. Allow it to burn for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then blow out. Move the stick around the room (especially corners of the rooms) to clear negative energy. When you are finished place the stick in a fire proof bowl. The stick's flame will go out on its own, re-light and repeat in other rooms if needed.
