Burning Palo Santo and white sage is incredibly effective way to pull high vibration and positive energy into your space and to cleanse your crystals. But not everyone can burn incense, sage, or holy wood in their space, for various reasons, and this essential oil spray is the perfect solution!
*The Palo Santo essential oil in this offering comes only from trees who have perished naturally, as this is the only way the oils set in the wood and become aromatic. It is wild-crafted, as is best. The White Sage essential oil in this offering comes from a small family farm, organically growing white sage on its native soil, as is best, never harvesting wild as this plant, salvia apiana, is critically endangered. More on each below!
ABOUT PALO SANTO
An absolute must-have spiritual tool, Palo Santo and White Sage are highly powerful and purifying aromatics from two parts of the world. Palo Santo, which is a tree related to Copal and Frankincense, from South America. I rarely “prescribe” anything at all, but when it comes to this incredible natural gift, it’s my belief that every altar, crystal shelf, or sacred space deserves Palo Santo on it!
Palo Santo literally translates to “Holy Wood” in Spanish, and is used to refer to a type of mystical tree that only grows on the coast of South America. The name “Palo Santo” actually encompasses three different types of holy tree, but only one, Bursera Graveolens, creates the sweet, citrus/pine/minty aroma of the wood we burn and is used in spiritual work. Related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal, this magical wood has a scent that uplifts the energy of the space in which it burns, its smoke cleansing and purifying the air.
Palo Santo is a wonderful alternative to burning white sage or incense, if you suffer from olfactory sensitivities. It has a lovely, bright, sweet aroma that is strong, but natural and non-irritating to most. With the exception of insects, who find the scent irritating, Palo Santo can be placed in clothes drawers or other spaces where you’d like to keep bugs at bay, and some use it to keep moisture from accumulating in wet environments. Otherwise, I like to use pure white sage to truly cleanse and clear a space, and Palo Santo to introduce positive, uplifting, high vibrations into an area. Cleanse and clear first, uplift and energize next. Palo Santo has been used for thousands of years for spiritual and religious purposes.
Truly aromatic Palo Santo is quite sustainable and low-impact on the environment. The tree must die and dry of natural causes in order for it to develop its signature scent. Some have tried to rush the process by cutting down this tree and mechanically drying in order to harvest more quickly, but the aroma does not develop. In this way, the Palo Santo gifts us with its purifying energies when it is ready and we are ready and patient. It truly is Holy.
WHY WILD CRAFTED?
There has been some controversy over the use of Palo Santo in recent months and years; when sourced ethically, as our oils have been, this promotes natural forest growth, and prevents larger corporations from coming onto family land and clearing it for use in growing mono crops. Supporting small family farmers growing and tending to Palo Santo – a multi-generational endeavor – is a step toward SUPPORTING the continued use and reverence of this holy tree.
ABOUT WHITE SAGE
Another absolute, must-have spiritual tool, “salvia apiana,” or White Sage, is a non-culinary form of sage used by indigenous peoples of the Americas to cleanse the energy and people for ritual or ceremony. It is a sacred plant native to the Americas and must be revered as such. It’s incredibly potent plant medicine, now adopted by cultures and people around the world. Where palo santo clears negative energy and ushers in sweetness, White Sage clears ALL energies. It’s incredibly powerful, so use it as such!
Salvia apiana, the White Sage plant, is a critically endangered native plant. It should never, ever be wild-harvested, and unfortunately, the populations of wild white sage are in very concerning condition due to over harvesting in an unethical way. The leaves and branches of salvia apiana require careful pruning, thoughtful and mindful harvesting, in order to preserve the life of the plant and allow it to thrive for years to come. Sadly, they have been harvested to the point of critical endangerment in their native soil. If you can’t grow your own white sage at home, always, always, always buy ethically farmed. When in doubt, ask the seller and make sure they have asked the questions of their source, how it is grown, how it is harvested, and who ties the bundles.

They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects.
