Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), also known as “holy wood”, has a very fresh and resinous smell with hints of mint and citrus—proving to be one of the most fragrant woods in the world. Palo Santo has been used for centuries by the incase and indigenous people of the Andes for medical purposes, as well as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing, and ridding evil spirits and misfortune. Today, it is often used for medical purposes, in ceremonial practices for cleansing, protection, inspiring creativity, and for infusing blessing and love, or simply for the pleasant aroma.
Our Palo Santo Smudge Sticks are from an ethical Wildcrafter in Peru, and they were gathered in a responsibly, ecologically sound and respectful way. Only the fallen branches and twigs of the tree are harvested, which is regulated by the government of Peru to ensure that the trees do not become overharvested. The plants were not harmed and nothing was wasted. Palo Santo is on the endangered list; therefore, our supplier does replant Palo Santo trees on the land to meet increased demand in the future.
You will receive 6 Smudge Stick that are 3.5-4” L x .5” W. Please note that sizes are approximate and may vary.
Never leave a Palo Santo stick, or anything else to burn unattended.
Organic: Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens)
We use only the highest quality herbs that are certified organic, holistically wild crafted, and never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. Our cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum of the plant's constituents in the final product. Our herbs are tinctured in organic alcohol and fresh mountain water (free from harsh chemicals and fluoride treatments). This combination acts as a medicinal strength and holistically balanced carrier, bringing the needed remedy straight to the blood stream to work fast and effectively. Tinctures are absorbed in the mouth and stomach and bypass the slower intestinal system which may or may not absorb the needed constituents of capsules. We hand make these wonderful herbal preparations in small batches. Tinctures are poured off into dark glass bottles creating a great product with an optimally long shelf life.
