Tribal Soul Smudge Sticks: Palo Santo

Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) means “Holy Wood” and is a wild tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador and Peru. It belongs to the same family as Copal, Myrrh and Frankincense. Its wood, leaves and oil have been used for thousands of years by indigenous Shamans to heal the body and soul, purify spaces, clear negative energies and prepare for meditation. Palo Santo has sweet, balsamic, and herbal scents, wonderfully calming and soothing, which carry a powerful energy of healing and purification.
