Sustainably sourced from the Peruvian Amazonia, Palo Santo or 'Holy Wood' is the wood from the branches of the Bursera graveolens tree, native to the region. When burned, it produces an enriching aroma which provides an energetic atmostphere that fills your home with positivity and a strong sense of well being. Lighting a Palo Santo stick provides the most ideal aura to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual equilibrium.
Abalone Shells are often used in smudging rituals, not only because they are practical in that they catch the hot cinders that fall away from the smudging stick during burn, but also becasue they are a beautiful gift that is naturally provided by Mother Earth's Ocean bed. Shimmering with gorgeous iridescent colours of mother of pearl, they hold the energy of the ocean which in turn brings about a strong sense of calm and relaxation.

It is now that you have created the most perfect ambience for transformations and manifestations to occur.
