Luna Sundara's Palo Santo jewelry seamlessly blends natural beauty with aromatic and spiritual benefits. Each piece, from bracelets to necklaces, is crafted with care, reflecting a deep respect for the environment and traditional craftsmanship. Here’s an in-depth look at how these unique pieces are made and how to keep them in perfect condition.

Crafting Process of Palo Santo Jewelry

1. Wood Selection: The journey begins with the careful selection of Palo Santo wood. Luna Sundara ensures that the wood is sourced sustainably, using only naturally fallen trees. This practice not only protects living trees but also guarantees the highest quality material.
2. Drying: After selection, the Palo Santo wood undergoes a drying process that lasts several months. This drying period is crucial as it allows the wood to develop its distinctive aromatic properties and harden, enhancing its durability.
3. Cutting and Shaping: Once dried, the wood is cut into manageable blocks. Skilled artisans then hand-carve these blocks into the desired shapes, such as beads for bracelets and pendants for necklaces. This meticulous hand-carving process ensures each piece is unique and intricately detailed.
4. Polishing: After carving, the pieces are hand-polished to achieve a smooth, glossy finish. Polishing not only enhances the visual appeal of the jewelry but also helps to bring out the wood’s natural aroma, providing a sensory experience.
5. Assembly: The final step involves assembling the carved and polished pieces into jewelry. High-quality materials, such as durable threads and clasps, are used to ensure that the bracelets and necklaces are not only beautiful but also sturdy and long-lasting.

Care for Palo Santo Jewelry

To maintain the beauty and aromatic qualities of your     Palo Santo jewelry, follow these care guidelines:

  1. Avoid Water: Although Palo Santo is a resilient wood, prolonged exposure to water can cause it to deteriorate and lose its fragrance. Avoid wearing your jewelry while bathing, swimming, or during activities that cause excessive sweating.
  2. Storage: Proper storage is key to preserving your jewelry. Keep your pieces in a dry, cool place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. This helps to prevent the wood from drying out excessively or becoming deformed.
  3. Cleaning: Clean your Palo Santo jewelry with a dry, soft cloth to remove any dirt or oils. Avoid using chemical cleaners or detergents, as these can damage the wood and diminish its natural scent.
  4. Aroma Reactivation: Over time, the aroma of Palo Santo may fade. To reactivate the scent, gently sand the surface of the wood with fine-grain sandpaper. This process releases the essential oils trapped within the wood, revitalizing its fragrance.
  5. Avoid Contact with Chemicals: Keep your jewelry away from perfumes, lotions, and other chemicals products. These substances can damage the wood and alter its natural aroma.

By following these care tips, you can ensure that your Palo Santo jewelry remains in excellent condition, allowing you to enjoy its beauty and benefits for many years.
