Palo Santo Milled Wood


Milled Palo Santo wood refers to Palo Santo wood that has been milled into smaller pieces. This form of Palo Santo can be used in various ways for its aromatic and cleansing properties. Here's why and how to use milled Palo Santo wood:


Why Use Milled Palo Santo Wood:

  • Aromatic Benefits: Like whole Palo Santo sticks, milled Palo Santo wood releases a sweet, woody fragrance when burned or heated. It can be used to create a calming and grounding atmosphere, promote relaxation, and enhance mental clarity.

  • Spiritual Cleansing: Milled Palo Santo wood can be used for spiritual cleansing rituals similar to whole Palo Santo sticks. Burning or heating the milled wood can help clear negative energy, purify the air, and create a sacred space for meditation, prayer, or ritual practices.

  • Ease of Use: Milled Palo Santo wood offers convenience and versatility in its application. It can be easily incorporated into various rituals, ceremonies, and spiritual practices without the need for whole sticks.

  • Environmental Consciousness: Using milled Palo Santo wood may be more sustainable and environmentally friendly than using whole sticks, as it utilizes smaller pieces of wood and minimizes waste.

How to Use Milled Palo Santo Wood:

  • Burn or Heat: Milled Palo Santo wood can be burned or heated using various methods to release its aromatic properties. You can sprinkle the milled wood onto a burning charcoal disc, place it in an incense burner or heatproof dish, or use it in a Palo Santo chip heater specifically designed for this purpose.

  • Set Your Intention: Before using milled Palo Santo wood, set your intention for the cleansing or spiritual practice. Visualize any negative energy dissipating and the space being filled with positive vibrations.

  • Ignite or Heat: If you're using a charcoal disc, light it with a match or lighter until it begins to glow. Once the charcoal is hot, sprinkle a small amount of milled Palo Santo wood onto the glowing surface. If you're using an incense burner or chip heater, follow the manufacturer's instructions for heating the milled wood.

  • Allow to Smolder: Once ignited or heated, allow the milled Palo Santo wood to smolder and release its aromatic smoke. Use a feather or fan to gently waft the smoke around your body or the space you wish to cleanse, paying special attention to corners, doorways, and areas where energy may be stagnant.

  • Express Gratitude: As you work with milled Palo Santo wood, express gratitude for its cleansing and healing properties. Connect with its sacred energy and honor its role in your spiritual practice.

  • Extinguish Safely: When you're finished with the milled Palo Santo wood, ensure it is fully extinguished by smothering it with sand or water if necessary. Dispose of any ashes or remnants responsibly.

  • Store Properly: Store milled Palo Santo wood in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture to preserve its potency and fragrance.


Milled Palo Santo wood offers aromatic benefits and can be used for spiritual cleansing, meditation, and ritual practices. By following these steps for using milled Palo Santo wood, you can incorporate its cleansing and healing properties into your spiritual practice and experience its calming and grounding effects.
