We love these Palo Santo Owls – they’re all-the-way-around head turners! Palo santo is a sacred wood that grows in South America. When Spanish monks discovered its clearing and healing properties, they named it Palo Santo which means “holy wood.” The sweet and mellow aromatic oils of palo santo develop over time, after the tree has naturally fallen and spent years on the ground. This cleansing wood also deepens your connection with Divine Source and enhances meditation. The attraction to its fragrance is said to be a sign of spiritual and emotional purity. These Palo Santo Owls carry the magic of the owl in combination with the medicinal potency of palo santo, making a gorgeous adornment for your sacred space.
The deeper magic of these Palo Santo Owls
Shamans have worked with palo santo medicine for thousands of years. It’s physically and spiritually cleansing, enhances clarity, restores tranquility, promotes joy, and inspires creativity. At Sage Goddess, we only use sustainably sourced palo santo wood and oils. Our Peruvian partners only harvest wood that has died naturally and has been dead for at least 5 years. We never harm living trees! The dead wood is collected, cleaned and cut by hand. In addition, we are committed to replanting trees in the forests where we find our wood. This ensures that our palo santo forests are not susceptible to over-harvesting.
The owl spirit animal is linked with death, transition, wisdom, prophecy, and uncovering secrets. Owls are nocturnal with acute vision and hearing. They also have a fringe on their wings that allows them to fly silently. Goddess Athena’s sacred animal was the owl and ancient Greeks believed owls had a magical inner light that gave them night vision. Symbolizing the mystery of night, owl teaches you to look for what’s hidden and kept in the shadows. While owls represent the feminine and the Moon, their yellow eyes symbolize the Sun and bringing light to the darkness. In ancient Rome, it was believed that placing an owl feather on a sleeping person would let you uncover all their secrets. Owl medicine helps you trust your intuition and see and hear what others can’t. It can activate and enhance clairvoyance, clairaudience, and astral projection. Owl reminds you to be silent and follow your inner guidance.
If you choose not to burn your Palo Santo Owl but still enjoy its benefits, I recommend placing it in the shower, in an area that’s not in direct contact with the water. The steam from your shower will diffuse the oils and essences within this wood carving, surrounding you with a medicinal vapor. These owls bring wonderful energies of purification, illumination, patience, and imagination.
“A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?”
