Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), also known as “holy wood”, has a very fresh and resinous smell with hints of mint and citrus—proving to be one of the most fragrant woods in the world. It is often used in ceremonial practices for cleansing, protection, inspiring creativity, and for infusing blessing and love, or simply for the pleasant aroma.
Our Palo Santo Smudge Sticks are from an ethical Wildcrafter in Peru, and they were gathered in a responsibly, ecologically sound and respectful way. Only the fallen branches and twigs of the tree are harvested, which is regulated by the government of Peru to ensure that the trees do not become overharvested. The plants were not harmed and nothing was wasted. Palo Santo is on the endangered list; therefore, our supplier does replant Palo Santo trees on the land to meet increased demand in the future.
Please Note: All sizes are approximate and may vary.
Warning: Adult supervision required. Avoid smudging if pregnant. Keep children and animals away from lit smudges. Do not leave lit smudges unattended.
