Palo Santo smoke is used as a smudging agent, like White Sage, Cedar, or Sweet Grass. It is believed that the fragrant smoke, with sweet woody tones, removes negative energy and raises vibrations. Here in South America we traditionally use it to repel mosquitoes and other flying insects- which definitely helps remove negative energy! It is also said that Palo Santo smoke enhances creativity and brings buen suerto- good luck- if you are open to it.
Our sticks are cut by stewards from “Proyecto de Palo Santo”, a reforestation project based in the dry forests near the Ecuadorian coastal town of Puerto Lopez. Only branches that have fallen naturally are used, as a result no tree has been cut down. A percentage of each sale of our Palo Santo range goes directly to replanting (60,000 trees since the start of the project), as well as many worthwhile community causes.
