After having burned different kinds Palo Santo in the workshop for the past year in order to keep the mojo good and combat any questionable odors, we decided we must start selling the best wood we’ve found. This stuff is amazing: Hand-cut, Sustainably harvested Palo Santo from Peru, and not only does it smell superb but it lights easily, burns much longer than most, and most of these sticks are extra large–none of those tiny machine cut pieces that are commonly sold.
Each muslin bag contains 5 or 6 thick Palo Santo sticks which will quickly become anyone’s best friend. Set your intention and send evil packing; combat that evil stink in your room or closet; and keep these and some matches by the toilet and show a lady that you are much classier and have the capacity for more “depth” than she ever imagined.
Palo Santo is your best friend.
Palo Santo, literally meaning “holy wood” in Spanish, is a tree that is widely distributed throughout Central and South America. Palo Santo is used in South America in much the same way as White Ceremonial Sage is used in North America–to combat negative energy and to cleanse a space. This wood is different than many of the other smudging materials as it is fragrant in its raw form and does not necessarily need to be lit, though it usually is when being used for ceremonial purposes. Palo Santo is often used by Amazonian shamans in sacred plant spirit ceremonies; the rising smoke of the lit sticks is believed to enter the energy field of ritual participants to clear misfortune, negative thoughts and to chase away evil spirits. Its use reportedly dates back to the Inca era.
