About our Palo Santo wood
Our palo santo was reclaimed in Peru and kept for over three decades to further develop its aroma.
We use laser engraving to burn sacred, ancient symbols into the wood and create beautiful mala beads and amulets for the modern spiritual seeker.
Palo santo (Bursera graveolens) is a wild tree native of South American Andes mountains. It has a life-span of 40-200 years. There is nothing visibly special about the palo santo tree when it is a living plant. The magic starts when the tree has naturally died, and it’s trunk and branches have fallen. 4-5 years into its rest on the forest floor, the wood begins producing an aromatic oil that gives the wood a typically sweet, mystical, unique aroma. For palo santo, sustainably harvested means that no living trees are cut and only the dead logs are reclaimed from the forest bed. Local governments regulate this practice.
Only the logs harvested this way maintain the oil and the smell.
Said to have been originated in Inca times, modern-day Peruvian and Colombian shamans use palo santo in their ceremonies. The primary use for the wood is that of clearing the energies around a space or a person through smudging its smoke.
We create personalized products that we craft with intention and intuition, holding your positive intent above our work. We support your daily practice with palo santo rituals.
We pledge to honor and support the region where our wood comes from. A percentage of our revenue is used to plant trees in Peru through our partnership with 1% for the Planet.
You’ll love it, guaranteed!
We stand by the products we create, from thoughtfully sourced materials to the intention from which they’re crafted. Because of this, we hope that every palo santo piece that leaves our workshop honors your meaningful spiritual journey.
