What is palo santo?

Palo santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a wild tree native of South America. 
After the tree has naturally fallen and stays on the forest floor for at least five years, aromatic oils start to develop, giving this wood its unique aroma and energy. Only trees that have naturally fallen will go through this process. This is what sustainably harvested, reclaimed palo santo means.
If the tree is cut when it is still living, the oils will not come into being.
Our wood has been sustainably harvested and reclaimed from Peru in 1989. Over the past thirty years, is has been developing its aroma and energy.

 

What is one for one?

One product sold = one tree planted
We pledge to honor and support the region from which our wood comes. 
We commit to planting a tree in the South American Andes for each mala and amulet sold through our store through our partnership with One Tree Planted.

 

What is a spiritual practice?

A spiritual practice is your daily commitment to remembering that you are pure original energy taking a temporary human form. 
At the level of your true self, you are a child of the universe, perfect, whole, and innocent.
A spiritual practice is a dedicated time (15-20 minutes daily) to connect with your true self. 

 Here is how the sequence might look like:

  1. Set an intention to connect with your source and declare it out loud.
  2. Elevate your Ki vibration. Ki energy is the unseen life force in your body and everywhere. It is a universal energy that penetrates everywhere, uniting all the universe's manifestations, visible or invisible. In Japan, it is referred to as "Ki." In China, it is mentioned as "Chi" or "Qi" and in Sanskrit, it is known as "Prana." You can do this through mindful breathing, conscious body movement, emotionally-activated gratitude, and through sacred materials such as palo santo or crystals.
  3. Get quiet and listen. Your intuition will speak to and through you.
  4. Have a timer to signal when 15-20 minutes have passed.
  5. Come back the next day.

Committing to be back again and again, curious and nonjudgemental, you will contribute the building blocks to your spiritual journey of awakening.

Jump for joy! Then watch the guided activation ritual that will facilitate your connection with the amulet or mala and seal your intention. This ritual will be sent to you in your confirmation email.

 

Do the palo santo amulets and mala need cleansing?

Palo santo is a self-clearing material. If you feel connected to other energies, such as the moon energy, you can keep your amulet or mala under a full moon.

 

How do I care for my palo santo products?

Keep them away from water, aromatic oils, and direct sun exposure.
Prolonged sweat also affects its appearance. While the contact with your skin doesn't damage the wood, the amulet or beads' appearance will change, and the wood will become bleached.
