Palo Santo is a sacred wood that has healing properties and is native to the coast of South America. In Spanish, Palo Santo means holy wood or wood of the saints. It is a strong medicine that has been popularised for its heavenly presence in keeping energies grounded and clear.
TGC's Palo Santo sticks come from trees that die in a natural way, during this process of decomposition the tree is compressed, secreting its oil and acquiring its medicinal and aromatic properties.
Our bundles come with 3 to 5 Palo Santo Sticks – approx. 10 cm – and have been blessed by reciting a protection mantra.
Open a window when you do indoor smoking so that the energy can flow away. Once you’ve cleansed a space, and the stagnant energy has been dispelled the space is left with a vacuum. At this point, it’s important to fill the space with the energy of love and white light. You don’t want your space filled with random energy that floats around, right?! You can burn your favourite incense, use an essential oil spray or light up a stick of fragrant Palo Santo and call in your desired energies
Smudging, the ritual burning of holy herbs or wood, is done to clear a space or person of negative energies. If your home feels stale or sad, if an argument has taken place and the air still hums with anger, if unpleasant energy lingers after a visitor – these are times to smudge. One may also smudge one’s self to banish anger, ailment, sadness or illness.
Our physical eyes can’t perceive the toxins and energies that are floating around in the air, but our physical, emotional and soul body can feel it. By burning wood or incense as the ancients did, we can purify our spaces, body, auras, and all crystals we store.
