Palo Santo, which means “holy wood” or “wood of the saints,” is a fallen wood from a sweet, fragrant tree that grows in South America. It belongs to the citrus family, and is related to both frankincense and myrrh. For centuries, the Incas, Shamans, medicine people and Indigenous communities in South America have used this powerful form of tree medicine for energy clearing, healing and spiritual cleansing.

Both the wood and the precious essential oil it produces are considered important conduits for healing. Indigenous cultures believe that the Palo Santo tree possesses magical qualities and that Palo Santo oil is a representation of the ancient spirits within the tree that produced it—which is why it’s such a deeply rooted age-old remedy.

Spiritual Cleansing
When burned, the clarifying smoke released from smudging herbs like sage emit negative ions that can uplift our mood and purify people, places and even objects from negative energy. But of the many sacred plants that have been used around the world for this purpose, indigenous cultures in South America believe that Palo Santo is the most powerful. It’s used for clearing negativity in the same way as Native Americans in North America have used white sage. Much like washing your hands before the start of a meal, smudging with Palo Santo is the act of cleansing your aura before you feed your soul through ceremony or ritual. That’s why shamans in the Amazon burn sticks of it during sacred plant-medicine ceremonies to cleanse the energy of the participants and ward off evil spirits.

Healing & Pain Relief
Traditionally, Palo Santo has been used for remedying various conditions, such as common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches and inflammation by smudging and making teas and tinctures with the wood and essential oils. It’s a rich source of antioxidants and phytochemicals, also known as terpenes, such as limonene and α-terpineol. In concentrated oil form, Palo Santo is effective in fighting free radical damage, and helping to relieve arthritis pain, stomach aches, and a host of other ailments.


Often used for emotional and spiritual guidance, Palo Santo is an effective natural anti-anxiety remedy. When inhaled, it moves directly through the brain’s olfactory system, where it helps to stimulate the body’s relaxation response to combat worry, anxiety, sleep disorders and depression.

Purification & Detox
When used as an herbal tea, Palo Santo assists in supporting the immune system and shuts down inflammatory responses caused by diet, pollution, environmental stress and illness.

Drinking Palo Santo Tea
how to make a soothing cup of Palo Santo tea

1. Cut one stick of Palo Santo into four separate squares.
2. Place one square into a pot for every four cups of water.
3. Bring the water to a boil. Tip: Cover the pot with a lid for faster boiling.
4. Turn off the stove and let the hot water simmer with a lid on top for another five minutes.
5. Use a strainer to transfer the water into your cup.
6. Let the tea cool for three to five minutes, depending on how you take your tea.
7. Add any extra elements to enhance the flavor, like honey, cinnamon or fresh herbs, like rosemary or lavender.

Insect Repellent
When lit, Palo Santo releases a purifying smoke that repels mosquitoes and other insects, which is one of the many ways people in Ecuador and Peru have used the smoke from this sacred wood.
household cleaner

Palo Santo essential oil has potent antibacterial properties, making it the perfect addition to your household cleaning supplies. In a spray bottle, simply add a few drops of the oil to water. You can also add in other essential oils, like lemon, grapefruit and rosemary, to enhance the scent and antibacterial effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are your items cruelty free and ethically sourced?

Absolutely! No animal testing here! We also take pride in ensuring the products we sell are sourced and obtained in a responsible and sustainable way.

How fast can I get my order?

While we have a shipping profile set for each item, we typically send out same or next day. Our customers always come first; we typically stop all work to get orders out as quickly as possible. Please note that we will work with FedEx if a quicker delivery is requested, just send a message! :)

Can I just cancel my order if I didn't receive it?

We worked really hard to offer products with attractive packaging, and to ship them quickly so we ask our customers to do their part to ensure they do everything they can to receive them.

If your package was marked delivered please check with others in your home, neighbors, or contact the local carrier.

If you still don't find your package, open a case with Etsy. We will not automatically issue a refund or cancel the order.

If your package is floating in the USPS stratosphere for more then 15 days we will file an insurance claim and try to resolve issues quickly. We do not reimburse before a case has been filed.

If your package was returned to us with an incorrect address, you will be required to cover the additional postage.

What's so important about reviews?

Reviews are everything to us! Reviews tell us if we are hitting the mark with our customer service in terms of quality of product, service and speed of shipping.

If you feel can't leave a 5-star review please contact us immediately with any issues so we can try to resolve them and ensure you love your purchase!

In order for an Etsy seller to make up for one 4-star review we must receive 19 5-star reviews! So even if we have a happy customer with 4 stars it really hurts us sellers to receive anything less than 5 stars.

We like to use biodegradable materials as often as possible. Oftentimes we will reuse and recycle packing materials from vendors to help reduce waste in landfills.
