Palo Santo literally means holy wood, and it is just that. When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Traditionally, it is burned by Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans and medicine people for spiritual purifying, energy cleansing and healing.
Palo santo oil mixes well with other oils, including: black pepper, cedarwood, clary sage, cypress, douglas fir, frankincense, lemon balm, myrrh, rose, vetiver and sandalwood essential oils.
Palo Santo Essential Oil is described as a woody and penetrating aroma with citrus and mint undertones and is somewhat reminiscent of Frankincense. It is traditionally used in spiritual rituals to clear negativity from a space, much in the way that White Sage is used.
Palo Santo Essential Oil is good for-
- Enhances creativity
- A meditation tool
- Helps to calm, ground, and settle
- Spiritually uplifting
- Improves immune system
- Relieves inflammation and pain
- Supports a healthy nervous system
- Reduces panic, anxiety, and insomnia
- Lessens allergy symptoms.
I've also included Palo Santo Essential Oil in my fragranced Palo Santo Experience Smudge Bars.
These Smudge Bars contain Palo Santo Essential Oil and an infusion of milled and whole Palo Santo sticks. Actually they're pretty spesh.
