Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint, and lemon.
Palo Santo is traditionally used for common colds, flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation and emotional pain. It is great for Aromatherapy and can be used during massage work to assist in healing.
Palo Santo is used for its energetically cleansing and healing properties. It has been popularized for its heavenly presence in keeping energies grounded and clear. It creates a pleasant, fresh smoke that works well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects. It provides an uplifting scent that raises your vibration and allows for a deeper connection to the Source of all creation. It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open to it.
Hold the Palo Santo at a 45-degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to a 1 minute and then blow out. Move around the room where you would like to clear the energy. The rich smell will bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings. When finished, place the stick in a fireproof bowl of metal, glass or clay. Blow on the ember if you wish to keep it burning.
