Palo Santo Bundle

$12

(Burseara Graveolens) Palo Santo is a natural wood aromatic incense used for centuries by the Incas and indigenous people of the Andes as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing, as well as to get rid of evil spirits and misfortune. as well as for medicinal purposes. It has a fine citrus aroma with underlying notes of frankincense, its close relative. It is often used by shamans in sacred plant spirit ceremonies.

Our Palo Santo is sustainably wild harvested from Ecuador from naturally fallen trees and branches that lie dead for 4-10 yrs. before they are harvested. Comes bundled in four sticks with vegan leather. 

A note on concerns about endangerment: 

Many people who know "Palo Santo” think it is the colloquial name of one singular species of tree. This is not true. “Palo Santo” covers a range of different botanical varieties like Bursera Graveolens, Bulnesia Sarmientoi (also known as Verawood) and Guaiacum (often abbreviated to Guaiac). While Verawood and Guaiac, indeed, are listed as endangered species, our “Palo Santo” - Bursera Graveolens - is not filed on CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) and is NOT endangered.
