Vibrant Souls Palo Santo Information

Vibrant Souls Palo Santo Information is all about us communicating to you the sustainability of our products in this range while helping you get the best possible experience when using Palo Santo.

Often referred to as (holy wood), Palo Sant has long been used for its unique scent. When the wood is harvested and burnt it omits a complex combination of sweet and citrus tones unlike anything else. Holy wood is renowned for its use in ceremonies as well as for its health benefits and therapeutic cleansing.

All Vibrant Souls palo santo products link to this information so you never have to guess what you’re doing.

We hope to help everyone by sharing this Palo Santo Information and making it easy for all. We have also done a quick video to show you how to use your Palo Santo, please click here to view How to use Palo Santo Video


We are very proud to work with a supplier directly who takes great care in the collection of our Palo Santo.  Our Palo Santo is naturally harvested from a community in Northern Peru that replants thousands of saplings of Palo Santo each year.  It is also illegal to cut Palo Santo trees down so all of the trees that are collected have naturally fallen and have been laying in the sun for years, they are then collected by the surrounding communities.   There are several systems of checks and balances to make sure that the rules and laws are followed when it comes to making Palo Santo products.

Uses of Palo Santo

In ceremonies, Palo Santo is burnt to produce a rich smoke to energetically stimulate and cleanse while delivering a heavier grounding effect. Traditionally, it was burnt by Incas, Shaman believes that burning Palo Santo allowed them to enter into a place that inspired creativity, brought protection, love, and goodness.  It is used against bad energy, to fight for you and bring you good luck – true to its name.

Something you may not know is that in tropical climates, Palo Santo is burnt for its pleasant, fresh smoke but as a natural, chemical-free deterrent to keep away mosquitoes and other flying insects.

Medicinally, Holy Wood has been traditionally been used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain, and more.  It is great for calming the immune and nervous systems for faster recovery of illness.

Burning Instructions

Light your Palo Santo by holding it at 45 degrees and igniting the tip facing to the ground. Continue holding downward for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute and then blow out.  The glow will end on its own unless you fan or blow on the ember to keep the smoke going. Smudge your area then extinguish when finished.

When fanning with your Crystal Energy Smudging Fan, simply fan the smoke from your smudge stick to strip away and repel the harmful influences and negative energy.
