Palo Santo is not ready to give its best until it has been dead for some time.  Once the tree finishes its vital cycle, the wood starts to compress and “sweeten” its essence.  The oil of Palo Santo impregnates the wood and then acquires all of the beneficial chemical components that previously remained hidden and latent in the tree.  This is when Palo Santo really becomes the ‘sacred’ wood.  This sweet aromatic wood is believed to bring many spiritual and material benefits to people.

Mystically speaking, shamans or people intuitively know that there are beneficial spirits living in the tree, which move into the essential oils of the heartwood after the tree dies.  To the shaman, Palo Santo is one of the most powerful and sacred substances that exists.  Palo Santo has a calming effect on the mind, obliterating negative emotions such as anger, fear and obliteration.  It generally uplifts the vibrations of the room and the person burning it, which is perfect for meditation.  Palo Santo allows for a deeper connection to the Source of creation and is said to enhance creativity and good fortune to those who tap in to its magic.  It is also physically grounding and calming.
