Palo Santo Logs (AA Grade) Large Holy Wood. (4x2")/5x10cm. Choose size. Calm/Cleanse/Bless. Soul Retrieval. Peru Shaman Wood Incense
Large, AA Grade Palo Santo wood pieces; thick, wide branches and small split logs, sustainably harvested from the South American coast. Fresh from Peru; these are highly scented!
These larger chunks are what I cut into smaller pieces, found in other listings. Thought others may wish to carve, or cut your own to any desired size (you can split these into 2-4 incense sticks.)
OR, my favorite way to keep them: whole as WoodSpirits on your altar.
*Like Sweet Grass, Palo Santo Wood Spirit does not need to be burned to be enjoyed. Keep in a sunny window, your clothes/regalia, use in shower/bath, or place in your car to receive the blessings by scent. Read about more traditional uses below. *
*Palo Santo~ "Holy Wood" is an ancient ceremonial Plant Spirit used by native Shamans, Curanderos, and Healers~ of North, Central and South America. Special Plant Medicine, with a long and ancient history among the Inca peoples. It brings a light, soothing energy to home and heart. Burned as incense, it brings a calming, delicate woodsy-vanilla scent, and is used to clear away unwelcome energies, and bring blessings to home and heart.
"Palo Santo para limpiar tu casa de la mala energia, Palo Santo para la buena suerte."
*Shamans advise keeping a deep respect for this Spirit Guide by burning it in small amounts with pure intentions~ Palo Santo is considered a powerful ally in meditation, magic ritual, journeying, and soul retrieval.
*The spice of Palo Santo wood carries hints of wood spice with vanilla, cinnamon, neroli, anise, and mint.

Palo Santo is sustainably harvested and carefully regulated: only limbs and branches that fall to the ground may be taken. They must remain on the ground at least 4 years before harvest. The longer they stay on the ground, the more fragrant the scent and more concentrated the licopenes. Prayers are said when they are collected.
