Palo santo sticks
In Spanish, Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) means Holy Tree, it grows plentifully in South America and has been used by medicine men for centuries during ritual prayers, ceremonies and during treatment, it has metaphysical and cleansing properties to remove negative energy, and the first mentions date back to the Inca tribes. The peoples of South America believe that cleansing with the Palo Santo smoke promotes good life, brings happiness and attracts life opportunities.
A legend has it that when the world was inhabited by just a handful of people, the most righteous of them – Cosakait – fell in love with a girl who, unfortunately, did not reciprocate his feelings. The man broke down and became ill and the illness brought him to his death bed. Before he departed, he promised that he would always be near the girl he loved. Cosakait said that he would decorate her head with flowers, drive away insects, and he would also change water that she touches with her mouth to make it sweet. A tree grew next to his burial site, it had a subtle smell, and when burnt – it exuded a stronger aroma. The legend says that it was the Palo Santo – the symbol of love and longing for an unfulfilled love. The Tobas tribe believed the tree to be holy.
