Palo Santo: Palo Santo is found in the forests of South America. Translated it means “Holy Wood.” It is traditionally used for its energetic cleansing and healing properties in Indigenous medicine.
At Bluum Wellness, our Palo Santo originates from Peru, where the Palo Santo trees are strictly regulated by the Peruvian government and therefore suppliers who do not follow the environmental guidelines and regulations will have their products confiscated.
Abalone Shell - The abalone shell has different uses depending on the many countries that have embraced the abalone as part of their culture. It is found on the coasts of New Zealand, Australia, Canada, The U.S.A, Mexico and parts of Japan. Some of the intended uses are the following:
- decorative items
- jewelery for men and women (known as sea opal)
- bowls for burning herbs and incense to protect from ash and embers
At Bluum Wellness, our abalone shells originate from Mexico.
Silver Sage - Also known as "Salvia Argentea" comes from the latin word salvare, which when translated means to heal. It is known for its ability to bring clarity, while connecting us to mother earth and our spirit guides. This invites positive energy by purifying your space, body, aura and personal items of any negativity and lower energy.
Silver sage is native to the eastern Mediterranean, southern Europe (Portugal to Bulgaria) and northwest Africa.
