Palo Santo is a sacred wood that comes from the Palo Santo tree, native to the coast of South America. Its name literally means "holy wood". When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Traditionally, it was burned by Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans, and medicine people for spiritual purifying, energy cleansing and healing. Some of the most well-known Palo Santo uses include inspiring creativity, evoking protection, infusing blessings and bringing both love and good fortune. It is a wonderful tool to use before and during meditation. Its up-lifting scent helps to raise vibrations and bring a deeper connection to the Earth.
