Also known as holy wood, these sticks can be lit and used to smudge, or cleanse, a space of unwanted energy. The scent of Palo Santo is divinely woodsy with a hint of sweetness. This herb helps to usher in good vibes and bless your space. We recommend smudging when you arrive in a new space, such as when you are moving, prior to meditating, or at the end of a stressful day.
Begin by setting an intention for smudging your space. Light the end of the Palo Santo while holding onto the opposite end. Allow to burn for about one minute or so. Blow out the flame and move about the space in which you intend to clear the energy. Move the sacred smoke throughout your entire space, allowing it to diffuse into all corners and across all windows and doors. Once you are done, place into a fireproof bowl. The glow will extinguish itself after a few moments. Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
