Palo Santo or "Holy Wood" is a sacred tree that grows on the coast of South America. Traditionally this earthy scented wood was used by shamans, healers and elders in ritual prayer, purification ceremonies and for healing purposes. The ancients believed the tree had both magical and healing properties that would only be cultivated if the tree was allowed to live a full life and given a respectful death. They would only use wood from naturally fallen Palo trees that had been lying peacefully for an extended period after which they were then dried, aged and eventually burned during rituals. The resulting sacred smoke bath was believed to have metaphysical properties that both purified negative energies and attracted positive ones. It is also well known for its healing properties:

​Today, the harvesting of Palo Santo wood is strictly regulated with the same guiding principles. Our distributor ensures that this holy wood is treated with respect and per required practice.  The wood is only from naturally fallen trees that have been lying peacefully between 4-10 years. In fact, every fallen tree that is taken, is replaced with a seedling working towards continuously restoring the Palo Santo population.

Please note, in order to use this powder, you must also get a block of charcoal. 
Burn the charcoal first so it gets hot.  Once it's hot, you can start sprinkling some of the Palo Santo powder onto the charcoal so it burns.

We recommend the charcoal brand "Swiftlite" due to its superior quality over other brands which don't light as well (trust us, we've tried many other brands!).
