Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to frankincense, myrrh, and copal. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint, and lemon.
Palo Santo is used to combat negative energy and cleanse a space. It is often used by Amazonian shamans in sacred plant spirit ceremonies, the rising smoke is believed to enter the energy field of ritual participants to clear misfortune, negative thoughts and to chase away evil spirits.
This Palo Santo comes from a 50 acre farm in Ecuador that contains both naturally occurring and replanted Palo Santo. They have replanted over 5000 Palo Santo trees on the land so far to ensure adequate supply for the future.
It is believed that a tree or fallen branches must lie dead for 4-10 years before the medicinal and mystical properties of the wood begin to come alive. It is also believed that the branches of the Palo Santo that are felled by lightning have the highest concentration of medicinal and mystical properties.
