Palo Santo is a tree native to the coast of South America. Considered by many to be a holy wood, it has been used for centuries for purifying and cleansing. The tree is a protected resource in Ecuador, and only fallen branches and dead trees may be used for harvesting. All our Palo Santo smudge sticks are collected from the ground, with no trees destroyed in the collection process.
When lit, the sticks will burn for a few seconds to a minute before extinguishing. The surrounding space will be filled with a warm and sweet fragrance.
Caution: Never blow on the stick while smudging, as this could cause sparks to fly and cause a fire. If gently waving your smudge stick room to room, always hold a fireproof container underneath. Be careful of any loose fitting clothing when lighting the stick.
