Palo Santo, literally meaning “holy wood” in Spanish, is a tree that is widely distributed throughout Central and South America which is used to combat negative energy and to cleanse the space. It is fragrant in its raw form and does not necessarily need to be lit, though it usually is when being used for ceremonial purposes. Palo Santo is often used by Amazonian shamans in sacred plant spirit ceremonies; the rising smoke of the lit sticks is believed to enter the energy field of ritual participants to clear misfortune, negative thoughts and to chase away evil spirits. Its use reportedly dates back to the Inca era.
Directions: Light the end and the blow out. Sweep side to side in the air in corners, around objects, inside cabinets, etc. to cleanse your space.
*Single stick or 2 sticks. All measured by weight. Single can be split into two seperate ones for shorter uses, or less smoke dispersment.
