Palo Santo is a sacred tree that is native to South America, known especially for its amazing scent and powerful cleansing ability. It offers many benefits when burned and used as a smoke cleansing tool. The benefits of Palo Santo can only be found through Palo Santo trees that have died naturally and been allowed to decompose for at least 5-8 years, as this gives the oils within the wood enough time to fully mature before it is harvested and processed into sticks or essential oils. This Palo Santo Bead Necklace is beautiful and unique, and will help to keep you feeling cleansed and full of clean, fresh energy!
Shamans and healers in South America, often known as Curanderos, traditionally used the energizing and healing properties of Palo Santo to purify air, dispel evil spirits, and cleanse negative energy. The wood has also long been used therapeutically to soothe cold and flu symptoms, depression, emotional pain, and other ailments. It’s said that the uplifting aroma of Palo Santo is great for meditation and relaxation, and that it both enhances creativity and brings good fortune. The scent of Palo Santo is also considered to be a very relaxing smell, and can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
