Palosanto

2 GBP

Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. The name 'Palo Santo' translates as 'Holy Wood' and it has been used for thousands of years by shamans in Central and South America for its purification properties, its first use dating back to the ancient Incan Empire who revered it for its spiritual, emotional and physical purification properties. It is believed to not only cleanse negative energies, but to attract positive ones.

We sell Palo Santo sticks (each weighing approx 5grams) that have been sustainably harvested in the dry, tropical forests of Ecuador on the coast of the South Pacific. Light by holding a flame up the length of the stick for around 30 seconds, blow out and then blow vigorously on the glowing ember… Prop in a heat-resistant container or waft the smoke around your body or space. The stick will naturally extinguish itself completely after a short period. One piece can be used again and again and lasts a long time. It creates a pleasant, fresh smoke that also works well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects.
