    PERUVIAN SERFOR CERTIFIED PALO SANTO

    Ethical, Sustainable, Handcrafted.

    Certified by the National Forest Service and Wildlife of Peru, high resin Palo Santo Natura (Bursera Graveolens).

    A distant relative to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal, Palo Santo belongs to the citrus family and carries sweet, warm notes of pine, mint and lemon. Infused with the ancient notes of its natural heritage, Palo Santo brings a uniquely clarifying scent to every space as its soft medicinal aroma lingers amongst you.

    The smoke of Palo Santo also works well as an organic insecticide, keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects, one of the prime uses of the Peruvians and Ecuadorians.

    Working with a small Peruvian community, Incausa bring you sustainable, ethical and unfarmed Palo Santo from the wild forests of Peru. With every harvest, the Peruvian community plant more and more Bursera Graveolens trees, creating a truly sustainable and ethical practice. 

    Palo Santo (Spanish for Holy Wood or Wood of the Saints) embarks on its own alchemical journey to bring you the healing, cleansing and spiritual properties that Palo Santo carries within. In order for these properties to be present, the tree must die naturally in its wild habitat. The fallen tree is left to nestle on the forest floor for 7 - 9 years before careful harvest. It is only during this time that the sweet medicinal oil begins to develop.

    1 piece (size varies, approximately 8cm x 2cm).

    PALO SANTO CLEANSE

    Cleanse your soul and space by igniting the end of the Palo Santo, allow the tip to burn for up to a minute and then wave the wood with your hand until the flame extinguishes. Allow the smouldering smoke to drift where it is called. For cleansing space, open all cupboards and drawers, open all windows and doors and walk through the space with the Palo Santo, offering your intention from your heart.
