Palo Santo wood has been used for thousands of years by Shamans and Healers among the Inca population. This “HOLY WOOD” is a part of their ceremonies and healing rituals. It provides energetic protection, and removes bad energies. Harvested under government supervision by the natives of Peru. No trees are destroyed in the collection of this wood, only twigs and branches on the ground are gathered. The sticks themselves may be lit and will burn for a few seconds to a minute, then extinguish themselves, filling a room with a wonderful fragrance.
