Used widely by healers, shamans and saints this "holy wood" brings in peace, harmony, luck and protective energies. It's used to raise vibrations and is also wonderful for setting and sealing intentions before and after gatherings, meditation, ceremonies, or rituals.
The aroma is a pleasant woodsy yet minty, slightly citrus-y.
- Our Palo Santo sticks come from trees that die in a natural way. It is during this process of decomposition that the tree is compressed, secreting its oil and acquiring its medicinal and aromatic properties. The tree remains uncollected for three to four years. Cutting a Palo Santo tree without the decomposition process won’t result in the same benefits.
- We are a Fair Trade focused company so all of our Palo Santo is obtained through fair business practices for the workers in South America as well as for the environment.
1. Open at least one window.
2. Light the four corners of one end of the stick. Palo Santo is a slow burning wood, so you may want to have a candle lit nearby to re-light as you go. Hold the stick in your right ("giving") hand.
3. Take a deep breath, set your intention, and "feel" into it. For example, "I cleanse this room of any stale or disruptive energy that doesn't serve the highest good."
4. Walk around the room and position the stick so smoke wafts into each corner, along the walls, ceiling lines, and windows.
5. Next, focus on your body. With your right hand, make circles with the stick starting from the top of your head, down the front of your body all the way to the floor, and then the back of your body, top to bottom. Take deep calming breaths as you do this. Imagine the smoke cleansing and absorbing all the negative, stagnant energy throughout your body and aura. Repeat as often as needed.
