Palo Santo: The Holy Wood


Discovering the Benefits of Palo Santo: The Holy Wood

Palo Santo, also known as "holy wood," is native to Peru, Ecuador, and other South American countries. It has a light, refreshing citrus fragrance and is excellent for deep healing and clearing energy.

Here's how to use it to cleanse your space:

 Take one stick and light it with a candle, match, or lighter.

  • Allow the stick to burn for 30 seconds to a minute, then carefully blow it out.
  • Move around the space you wish to clear, whether it's your bedroom, office, car, or entire home. Allow the smoke to waft around each area.
  • As you move the Palo Santo stick into the corners of each room or space, say aloud: "I ask that the plant spirit of Palo Santo please infuse this space with blessings."
  • A rich aroma will fill the air, bringing peace and clarity to the moment.
  • Once you're finished, place the Palo Santo stick in a fireproof bowl and allow the embers to burn out.

Remember to always be cautious when working with fire.

 For thousands of years, the wood, resin, and oil of Palo Santo have been used for medicinal purposes, primarily to treat pain and stress. Additionally, it is believed to clear negative energy.
