The burning of Palo Santo is a ritualistic act of clearing.
Sustainably harvested from the Peruvian jungle, Palo Santo is well-known as a compound that removes stagnant energies.
Belonging to the same plant family as copal, frankincense and myrrh, “the nose” on it will open up to the scents of lemon, pine and mint.
Beyond the spiritual realm, these plants are used regularly to freshen spaces, and allowed to smolder as effective bug and mosquito repellant.
