Palo Santo is Spanish for Holy Wood, and is one of nature’s awesome tools for raising vibrations, and purifying and cleansing your space. With a beautifully aromatic, woody smell hinting of lemon and mint, along with the ability to bring peace, calm and clarity to a situation or place, who wouldn’t want to get smudging with Palo Santo!?


Earthy, yet refreshing. Hypnotically smoldering for hours on end. One whiff and it’s clear that palo santo’s popularity across the beauty and wellness world is rooted in real, soul-nourishing benefits.Palo santo has been used by indigenous peoples for centuries. 


Palo santo is available in different forms. You can use it as:

  • Wood. The wood of the palo santo tree is available as sticks, chips, or powder. It usually comes from the branches of the tree, so it’s 100 percent wood.
  • Resin. Palo santo wood contains a very aromatic resin, which can be extracted and used separately.
  • Oil. The essential oil of palo santo can be derived from the wood and fruit.


Palo santo is associated with several medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Reportedly, it can do the following:

  • Repels mosquitos
  • Reduce pain
  • Improve stress response


The wood is burned as incense. As it burns, it releases aromatic smoke into the air. Palo santo chips and powder are used in the same way.

    How to use Palo Santo:

    Using Palo Santo is really very simple. You can use it either to clear a space of negative or unwanted energies; for meditation; or for cleansing your crystals.

    Cleansing the Home:

    • Take one stick and light it with a candle, match or lighter.
    • Allow the Palo Santo stick to burn for 30 seconds to a minute, then carefully blow it out.
    • Move around the space in which you wish to clear the energy - be it your bedroom, office, car or your entire home - allowing the smoke to waft around each area.
    • As you take the Palo Santo stick into the corners of each room or space you are cleansing, say aloud: "ask that the plant spirit of Palo Santo please infuse this space with blessings". 
    • A rich smell will fill the air, bringing peace and clarity to the moment.
    • Once you feel you have cleansed your space, place the Palo Santo stick in a fireproof bowl and allow the embers to burn out.
    • Remember to always exercise care and caution when working with fire.

    Cleansing Crystals with Palo Santo:

    • Place your crystals together in an area.
    • Light the Palo Santo stick, allow it to burn for up to a minute then blow it out.
    • Allow the smoke from the stick to envelope the crystals and the area they are in.
    • Once the stick has burnt out, your crystals will be cleansed and you can start afresh with new intentions.

    • Arise in the morning with intention.
