From South America, Palo Santo, which means, “holy wood”, in Spanish, is renowned for its distinctive fragrance and profound healing powers. Dating back to the Inca Empire, many say that being smudged with Palo Santo feels invigorating and burn the wood intentionally to clean bad energy from a place or person’s energy field and to promote grounding and good fortune. Similar to the uses of White Sage in smudging practices, this wood is highly regarded in spiritual practices and shamanic ceremonies as a way to raise the vibration and aid in deeper meditation as well. There is an ancient adage which states, “If meditation is the yin, palo santo is the yang.”
It is also known to repel insects and may possible help remedy coughs, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments. Gathered from the forest floor on Ecudor’s Pacific coast, as to not harm the trees, Palo Santo is acknowledged for encouraging relaxation, calming the nerves and quieting mental chatter. From the same botanical family as Frankincense and Myrrh, this unique woods aroma is sweet, fruity, with hints of mint, is shown to have, “a deeply transformative effect, including nurturing, activating and manifesting their creative and spiritual potential.”
