Palo Santo, also commonly known as Holy Wood, is an aromatic tree found in the coast of South America. It has a very pleasant aroma and is a part of the citrus family with sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon.
Traditionally used by indigenous communities for its medicinal and spiritual healing properties, the therapeutic benefits of holy wood are many. Today, Holy Wood is still highly used in Central and South American as a natural anti-anxiety remedy with the power to provide relaxation and increase the flow of good energy. When inhaled, it moves directly through the brain’s olfactory system, where it helps to stimulate the body’s healing response to fight anxiety, sleep disorders, worry and depression.
The soothing aroma is the perfect partner for meditation, yoga, and moments of relaxation. Purify your surrounding energy and discover peace and grounding as you enter into a deeper connection with your natural self.
All of our Palo Santo's wood is obtained naturally through the collection of fallen branches. No trees are cut or harmed during the process.
The fallen branches are hand picked by local communities in Peru and Ecuador. The local business helps support small farms and productive cooperatives in South America.
How to use
Holy wood has been used by people, particularly in Ecuador and Peru, for thousands of years for traditional medicine, mosquito repellent and spiritual cleansing rituals.
