Palo Santo is known as the sacred tree by the ancient tribes of South America. It has traditionally been used by healers for thousands of years, for the purpose of cleansing, healing, purifying and re-energising.
These Palo Santo pieces are from the wood of naturally fallen trees of Ecuador or Peru, and sustainably gathered. When lighted the natural oils are released with a scent that is sweet and smouldering, and captures the essence of the wood. The aroma is a warm, woody pine with hints of lemon and mint.

Sustainability: These Palo Santo sticks are made from only naturally dead branches and trunks, without cutting down any living trees or damaging the surrounding area. There is not harvesting, but recollecting (picking up) of naturally dead Palo Santo. The fallen trees and branches have had at least two years rest before they are gathered. This process allows the medicinal properties and scent to form. A cut tree has no value, since it does not contain the medicinal properties of the Palo Santo, nor does it have aroma. The communities that live in the area rely on the essential income from the Palo Santo.
