WHAT’S THIS PALO SANTO ALL ABOUT?
Palo Santo is one of The Honey Pot’s best sellers and for good reason. Those that are unaware will sometimes inquire “what’s this Palo Santo thing all about and why is everyone buying it.” So, I thought I should put some information out on this mystical tree. Palo Santo grows on the coast of South America in Spanish, the name literally means “Holy Wood”. It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint, and lemon.
Palo Santo is used for its energetically cleansing and healing properties. Just like Sage and Cedar; Palo Santo is essential in clearing negative energy from your space. It has an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to the Source. It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune.
Use a match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Hold at about a 45-degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to 1 minute and then blow out. Move about your space in which 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 fire proof bowl holder. Now relax and enjoy. The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going.
Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
