Palo Santo Smudging Sticks
Palo Santo smells amazing! The scent is enchanting, calming, and cleansing. It has an aroma like no other wood. Burning Palo Santo releases this aroma and surrounds you with a sense of calm and serenity. This wood has been cherished throughout the Andean regions of South America for generations. Luna Sundara sources responsibly harvested wood from Peru and Ecuador. We invite you to learn more about our Palo Santo here.
Hand Rolled Palo Santo Incense
Check out our hand rolled palo santo incense. These incense sticks are individually hand rolled in Peru by local women who take great care and pride using only the highest quality palo santo wood. These incense sticks are made using 100% natural ingredients. No chemical additives or accelerants. We use pure palo santo dust and a binding gum from acacia trees to make this incense. These incense sticks are available now.
Many of us have been working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic - and in the midst of so much uncertainty and stress, it’s important we try to create a calming atmosphere in our at-home environments.
At Luna, incense is one of our must-have picks when working from home. Not only does incense cleanse any interior space, but it also helps to instantly clear our minds and lift our moods. While we love traditional incense, we’re so excited to expand our product line to now include premium Palo Santo resin - a form of incense that relies on raw materials from aromatic plants and herbs.
There’s a reason we associate candles and incense with relaxation. It’s because a great candle, incense or essential oil’s natural aroma has the power to transport you to an alternate universe.
Palo Santo is no exception. Possessing a unique woody scent with hints of pine, lemon and mint, it will immediately send your nose straight to the Amazon rainforest! Beyond its fragrant aroma, its healing medicinal and spiritual traits have been known and used for thousands of years. Palo Santo may help with inflammatory reactions such as headaches and stomach-aches, as well as reduce stress levels - but it’s perhaps best known for releasing purifying properties when burned. In South American culture and history, Palo Santo is even said to remove negativity and obstacles and attract good fortune.
