Shamans believe that the spirit of the Palo Santo tree carries a wisdom within it that enables the smoke of this wood to help heal people through an intimate process of honor and respect. For example, the tree is never cut down by way of human intervention, but instead, is harvested only years after it has fallen strictly by natural causes. Because of this, the concentration of its essential oils become considerably increased, thus enhancing their efficacy. When burned, its aroma resembles an irresistibly mystical combination of resin and cinnamon, but has a unique feature that many would not expect... Shamanic wisdom points out that one’s emotional and spiritual purity instill in them an innate attraction to the aroma of Palo Santo.
Shamanic wisdom also teaches us that the scent of cinnamon helps keep evil spirits away. This sacred wood has been burned by Shamans for centuries to invite the naturally fragrant smoke to enter the energetic field for clearing negativity, and attracting positive vibrations. It is also considered helpful for enhancing meditation and concentration.
