Palo Santo is a sacred wood that comes from the Palo Santo tree, native to the coast of South America. Traditionally it is burned by the Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans and medicine people for spiritual purifying, energy cleansing and healing. Some of the most well known Palo Santo uses are said to provide energetic protection, remove any bad energy, uplift your mind and spirit, cleanse your Aura and fill your home with peace and blessings.
How to use Palo Santo
- Light your Palo Santo stick approx: 2cm down one side to get a good burn.
- Let the stick catch fire and allow it to flame for about 30-60 seconds. Gentle shake/blow out. (Stick may need to be re lit several times as it will tend to self-extinguish. This is a normal aspect of Palo Santo)
- To fill your space with blessings, start at the front door and walk clockwise through your space. To bless yourself, or your crystals simply allow the smoke and scent of the Palo Santo to fill the room.
- When you are finished, place your Palo Santo stick in a fireproof container, the glow of the stick will eventually go out by itself.
