Palo Santo Wood Stick for Cleansing and Purification
Palo Santo is a "Holy Wood" found in South America. When burned, its healing and cleansing properties are similar to that of sage, with a much less pungent scent that is associated with sage. Its scent is light and woodsy, and is thought to help with meditation by uplifting the spirit. It is also used for cleansing and purifying a home or ritual, and for many healing ceremonies as well.
Burn Palo Santo wood very similar to a sage wand by tilting the stick at a 45 degree angle and lighting the end. Keep lit for 30 seconds or so, then blow it out to produce the cleansing smoke. Use the smoke to cleanse areas you feel have stagnant or negative energy, and be sure to snuff the end of the Palo Santo stick thoroughly when done.
You can also add small pieces of Palo Santo wood to your own incense blends, and grind them up for use in incense, spells and rituals, making this a very useful tool for any witchy cabinet.
When you purchase a Palo Santo stick from Inked Goddess Creations, you will be receiving 1 stick, approximately 1/4 oz in weight and at least 4" long.
Palo Santo Wood was featured in April's Magick Mail Subscription Box.
