Palo santo translates to “holy wood” in Spanish. It produces a pleasant, light, and fresh smoke, as opposed to the sometimes harsher smokes of Sage. When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Traditionally, it is 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.
