These earrings are made from hand-casted resin with real Palo Santo wood and Forget Me Not flowers, preserved from the gardens of Colombia. The resin is made using waste products from other industries, such as pine bark stripped from pine trees made into lumber.
Palo Santo means “holy wood” or “wood of the saints”, a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. The tradition of using Palo Santo goes back long before the Spanish arrived to Latin America. Indigenous shamans of the Andes already used Palo Santo in their rituals to cleanse their space, to ward off evil spirits and bring prosperity in people’s lives. Nowadays, besides of keeping away mosquitos, it’s still used for this purpose: to bring positivity in houses and businesses. And also as an aid in meditation practices and to relax the mind.
