Is Palo Santo Endangered?

Is Palo Santo Endangered?

At Luna, we have a soft spot in our hearts for Palo Santo, the aromatic wood that’s been used for centuries in traditional and indigenous healing practices. Drawing inspiration from the role that Palo Santo played in her childhood, co-founder Sandra Manay has expanded Luna’s Palo Santo offerings to include everything from incense sticks and jewelry to essential oils. And as she’s grown from smudging Palo Santo sticks in Peru to sharing her love for this magical wood through products on our site, so too has this “Holy Wood” exploded commercially, igniting concerns about the Palo Santo tree’s conservation status.

Full Moon Cleansing Ritual With Palo Santo

As we go about our daily lives, we unwittingly absorb energy (both negative and positive) and radiate it outwards. While it can occasionally be beneficial to reflect on our internal energies, it’s also important to let go of fears and self-criticism.
