Palo santo-infused beauty products are here to help you channel the healing energy of the “holy wood”

Palo santo may be in vogue right now, but for all the right reasons. Also called “holy wood” it’s known best for its smoke, which helps clear spaces of negative energy, while giving off a sweet and woodsy scent. The wood itself is also healing, thanks to its stress- and bacteria-fighting properties.

Aside from witchy women who use the wood to literally clear the air, the beauty world has also been picking up on palo santo as a main ingredient in everything from oils to shampoos and salves.

To celebrate the *magick* of the palo santo plant, we’ve rounded up 11 beauty products that make use of its sacred medicine.
