Benefits Of Palo Santo Sticks

WHAT ARE PALO SANTO STICKS?

Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal.  In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”.  It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon.

CEREMONIAL BENEFITS –

Palo Santo is enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage and Cedar.  It is a strong medicine that has been popularized for its heavenly presence in keeping energies grounded and clear. Creates a pleasant, fresh smoke that works well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects which is one of the prime uses for the people who live in Ecuador and Peru. 

It provides an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to the Source of all creation.  It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open to its magic.

HEALING BENEFITS

Palo Santo is traditionally used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain and more.  This Essential Oil is great for Aromatherapy and can also be used during massage work to assist in healing.

Great for calming the immune and nervous systems for faster recovery of illness.  In essential oil form, it works well for physical pain and inflammation containing high levels of D-Limonene and Monotropenes that are useful for cancer symptoms.

SUSTAINABILITY

The best part of this magical tree is that it is wildcrafted. Harvested by a family that has planted over 30,000 trees back into the area over the last 10 years.  The essential oil can only be extracted from dead trees and fallen branches. Using “Vapor Distillation” without the use of dangerous chemicals or solvents.  This insures a high-quality product cared for with Love and Respect.

100% Sustainable and Natural

Burning Instructions

Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo.  Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame.  Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to 1 minute and then blow out.  Move about your workspace, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy.

The rich smell will also bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings .  When finished, place the stick in a fire proof bowl of metal, glass or clay.  The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going.  Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
