Palo Santo - Holy Wood
Palo Santo wood bundle. The tree is widely used for folk medicine and is is claimed that when burned it helps to cleanse bad energies and bring good luck. Bundle of approx 5 sticks - 50g.
Palo Santo wood (B. graveolens) from seasoned wood collected without having to unnecessarily fell trees. It is 100% sustainable and ethically sourced in Ecuador. Wood is only harvested from naturally fallen trees. New tree are planted for every fallen tree harvested.
Each Palo Santo Wood piece is about 50mm in length and 10mm thick. They have a moisture content of about 11 - 15% making them perfect for burning
Palo Santo wood is used as a sacred incense due to the strong fresh trail it produces when it is smouldered. The palo santo pieces do go out by themselves and are therefore safe to use indoors. Once enough aroma is released simply allow to self extinguish or place on a shell/bowl.
We suggest burning the palo santo pieces in and abalone or scallop shell.
For 2 reasons:
1. The shell provides a safe flameproof surface/bowl for the wood to be burned in.
2. The Shell represents water, the palo santo wood represents (grown from) the earth, the flame represents fire and a gentle waft of a hand, feather on breath represents wind.
