What is Palo Santo? Palo Santo is a wild tree native to the Yucatan, Peru, South America and a few other places. Palo Santo means “holy wood” or the “wood of the saints” I love burning Palo Santo as an alternative to sage for smudging.  The smell of palo santo is stronger than sage and has a “woody” smell. Palo Santo has several benefits to burning it too!

Here are some of them below.

  1. The smoke helps to remove negativity and provides energetic protection.
  2. Provides Spiritual purifying of self and your environment.
  3. Helps to bring in creativity, love, positivity and good fortune.
  4. Helps to bring in a deeper connection to the Divine.
  5. Helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
  6. Helps to bring in clarity and concentration.
  7. It is a great insect repellant.
