5 palo santo to cleanse your house And shopping tips, to rebalance the energy of your house in a ritual of wellness

Drive away anxiety, headaches and inflammation. And there is something absolutely calming in seeing the flame that slowly burns.

The famous aromatic wood that burns slowly on a design base at home is the mantra of 2020. Palo santo, in Spanish, means "sacred wood" and has been used for centuries by shamans of the Andes and the Amazon for the spiritual healing and to restore harmony. In fact, it acts on the fifth Chakra, which is that of the throat, thus relieving allergies, coughs and asthma attacks. It also helps improve sleep and to give a sense of calm because it is a natural psycho-physical relaxant.

It is no coincidence that it is nicknamed "scent of the soul", precisely because it helps to harmonize body and spirit. The name is that of the homonymous tree - bursera graveolens - which grows along the coasts of South America and the benefits are endless. In addition to chasing away anxiety and bad vibes, it also relieves inflammation and headaches. For the uninitiated, in summer it is also an excellent mosquito repellent and says goodbye to bad smells in the kitchen and toilet. Its scent is strong but very welcoming, almost reminiscent of the smell that is perceived once you cross the threshold of a temple. It tastes of wood and smoke, but with a mid-season thunderstorm aftertaste thanks to the hints of pine and lemon.

Its extract is now also used in products like aroma diffusers for the environment, shampoos and soaps to purify negative energy from head to toe, as well as nourish and tone the skin by fighting dermatitis, dryness and eczema.

However, choose it responsibly and make good use of it: the alarm of the decimation of the tropical forest is real and the woods to choose are those taken in respect of the plants which, let's not forget, are seen by the natives as sacred. When the bursera graveolens dies naturally, going through its biological drying on the ground for at least four years, the wood is still rich in essential oils. To recognize a high quality Palo Santo, start by observing its color, which must be golden straw-colored, but never lighter or darker otherwise it is synonymous with young bark or roots. Then, like good wine, smell it: aging is essential and it must have an intense aroma of resin that usually also releases on the hands. Its smoke must be white, not black, and the texture dry.
