- Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. In Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon.
- Palo Santo is enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage and Cedar. It is a strong medicine that has been popularised for its heavenly presence in Ayahuasca ceremonies while keeping energies grounded and clear.
- Not only is smudging used in spiritual practices, but it can also have medicinal benefits for those who are affected by poor air quality. Due to its anti-bacterial properties, Palo Santo can help those who suffer from asthma, headaches, lung problems and respiratory issues, as well as general coughs and colds. (1)
- Unlike conventional incense which burns completely after lighting, Palo Santo may be re-lit many times. It has a wonderfully calming, soothing scent, with a powerful energy.
- Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to 1 minute and then blow out. Move about your work-space, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy. You can even cleanse yourself by wafting the smoke all around your body, including under your feet. The rich smell will also bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings.
