The use of Palo Santo is based on symbolism, coming from traditional beliefs and personal testimonies, according to which its incense brings numerous benefits for the body and mind.
Coming from a South American tree, it has been used for centuries by shamans and spiritual healers to clear negative energies. Today, beyond its good smell, Palo Santo is appreciated in homes for these 5 benefits associated with it.
1. Calming effect
When burned, Palo Santo releases a sweet, woody aroma that creates a connection with the present moment. A most pleasant scent promoting both relaxation and concentration. It thus creates an atmosphere conducive to meditation or relaxation.
2. Support the mind
The sticks are also believed to help eliminate negative thoughts. Its aromas emanate a feeling of peace that can calm a troubled mind. Some people then use Palo Santo to improve their mental well-being.
3. Air purifier
Palo Santo sticks produce smoke when burning wood that contains essential oils that can help purify the air and eliminate bad odors.
4. Pain relief
When used as an oil, it is also said to relieve joint pain, asthma, colds and even headaches. For what? Because analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties are associated with it. Indeed, it contains active components, notably terpenes and aldehydes, which help alleviate the symptoms associated with these conditions.
5. Keeps Bugs Away
Finally, Palo Santo keeps insects away! During the summer period, it is an interesting addition to an outdoor meal. You can both benefit from its pleasant smell and its offensive smoke for insects which will simply seek to change areas.
