Common uses of Palo Santo: Use this cosmic wood for cleansing the energy of a person or a place. If you burn palo santo in your house, it will be blessed by energies for you, your family, & your projects. The smell of the Palo Santo puts you in a good meditative state. Drinking the tea of this wood is good for stimulating the immune system and fighting inflammation. Burning dried wood from the “mystical” palo santo tree and collecting its concentrated oils have been widely used in folk medicines and by shamans (“medicine men”) for centuries because of the tree’s perceived spiritual applications. The wood from palo santo trees is also commonly burnt as incense and used to make a natural mosquito repellent (like citronella oil) because it possesses aromatic resins and volatile oils. Burned similarly to other incense by lighting shavings of palo santo wood, the smell keeps bugs and spiritual “bad energy” away, according to mystics.
