Palo Santo Smudging Wood

1 oz sacred palo santo wood bundle. These smudge sticks are about 3"-3 1/2" each and there are usually 2-3 sticks per bundle.

Palo Santo or "Holy Wood" has long been used by Shaman and Medicine Men/Women in sacred ceremonies. This aromatic wood is related to frankincense, myrrh, and copal. Known for its medicinal and magical properties, Palo Santo is used for smudging, cleansing, purifying, healing, and as incense and tea. It is said to clear any negative energy or spirits, and bring good luck and a positive attitude.

To burn your palo santo:

Hold the end of your palo santo stick under a flame until it ignites, and let your palo santo burn for 10-30 seconds. Gently fan or blow out the flame and let your palo santo smoke as you smudge your home, workplace, your gemstones, or your body (I smudge my kids with palo santo; they love the smell and ritual of it). Place your palo santo stick in a fire safe bowl when you are finished with it and let it extinguish itself. These sticks can be reused over and over and will last through may uses.
