Palo santo is a type of tree (Bursera graveolens) growing wild near the equator and down into South America. This tree species is known for its healing properties and has a deep spiritual history. History immersed in ritual.

Burned as a cleansing incense and used as a smudging tool to release a space from negative forces, palo santo wood invites practice with intention. The scent beckons a hundred stories; naturally occurring organic compounds limonene and terpineol produce a focal aura of citrus and cedar.

Palo santo essential oil (available at Blissdorf) can be extracted from the tree and used for aromatherapy or perfume. You will remember the first time your senses met the material. The quiet pleasure of palo santo is most cherished by those who have had stood witness to its power.

Bursera Graveolens wood is collected in the Piura region of northern Peru, characterized by an intense and robust aroma, this Palo Santo variety is ideal for rituals and ceremonies. The incense sticks have been used since ancient times by the shamans of pre-Columbian populations: they purify the energies in rooms, favoring rebalancing and inner harmony and have a long-lasting steady and delicate aroma. For correct ignition, bring one end of the Palo Santo stick to a live flame, leave the burn for a few seconds, then shake it to extinguish the flame. Repeat the operation until you have a thin layer of embers. Our Palo Santo is harvested from fallen plants at the end of their life cycle, they are left on the ground to mature for at least 3 years. Once collected, the wood is cut and packaged by hand. Our Palo Santo wood is natural and eco-sustainable and guaranteed by smoke analyses carried out in European laboratories. It is also fair trade, as it is collected and selected in collaboration with local communities, in fair and ethical working conditions.
