Palo Santo Smudge Stick
The Palo Santo tree is deemed to be a symbol of love, kindness and longing. Palo Santo also called Holy Wood or Saint’s Wood is a rare and delicious smelling relative of Frankincense that grows in South America. Sacred to the Inca and Aztec, it is used both as a medicine of protection and of welcome to friendly spirits. Burning Palo Santo is a special blessing to the tree spirits when it is appropriate to thank them for the use of their bodies when we use wood in a sacred fire as in a sweat lodge fire or other fire ceremony. Our Palo Santo is harvested only from downed trees and broken branches to protect this special sacred medicine.
