Natural Palo Santo

Palo Santo is a sacred tree that grows in select parts of South America. Its name translates to ‘Holy wood’. It has been used for centuries by shamans in ritual prayer, ceremonies, + healing. It is known for its metaphysical properties of purification + clearing negative energies.

Ancient healers believed the Palo Santo tree had both magical + healing properties that would only cultivate if the tree was allowed to live a full life + given a respectful death. They would only use wood from naturally fallen Palo trees that had been lying peacefully for an extended period, after which they were then dried, aged, + eventually burned in rituals.

Alkmista Palo Santo has been harvested in line with these guiding principles. Alkimista Palo Santo is hand-cut per traditional methods, + as a result size + shapes of each stick may vary.

Our suppliers ensure this holy wood is treated with respect. They only use naturally fallen trees that have been lying peacefully for between 4-10 years. Every fallen tree that is taken is also replaced with a seedling working towards continuously restoring the Palo Santo population.
