I love palo santo. I love the way it smells and I like to light it like incense and let the smoke fill my apartment with a scent of wood and rose.
I had never heard about palo santo until a little more than a week ago when I found it at Floracopeia . The name palo salto means sacred wood or holy wood. It has been used by the Incas for centuries in rituals and sacred practices. They felt it has a purifying and cleansing power and could also get rid of evil spirits.
It comes in different shapes and forms such as sticks (incense), essential oil, massage oil and hydrosol. I decided to get the incense or the sticks because it’s very easy to use and also fairly cheap. The sticks apparently will last a long time because they burn slowly.
I’ve been using palo santo a lot because it helps soothe my nerves and ground me. The scent is amazing and I love to lie down and just breathe it in and feel myself relax. I’m generally a very tense person but this incense helps me let go of what troubles me. When I first burned it I could feel a cool tingle in my scalp as tension just left it without me even really trying.
I will also use it when I do my yoga practices in the morning of evening. Usually though I burn it whenever I feel the need. It can be nice to breathe in the scent even while doing the dishes! Anything can become a sacred practice of enjoying life in the moment.

It’s important to get palo santo from a sustainable source as the tree is endangered. That’s why I get it from Floracopeia as they harvest the chips from the ground, and they also have extremely high quality products.
Right now there is also a sale on a combined package of palo santo wood chips, essential oil, hydrosol and massage oil.
But you can also just get the more inexpensive wood chips (or sticks as I call them).
Enjoy creating sacred rituals and spiritual moments, whatever that should mean to you 🙂
