Palo Santo is wood from a tree called Bursera graveolens, nicknamed Palo Santo, that grows in South America. For centuries, Palo Santo, which translated means “holy wood,” has been burned as an energy cleanser. The ritual comes from Incan tradition that says the smoke from the wood, burned during spiritual ceremonies, is healing.
Like sage, which is predominantly used by Native Americans, South American shamans believed burning Palo Santo had similar properties capable of resetting energy that was tainted by negativity or conflict. It also is thought to neutralize issues before they ever start.
Whether it’s conflict at work or a stressed-out partner bringing you down at home, Palo Santo is said to show agitated and harmful energy the door (literally), bring in positive healing energies, and allow you to approach things with an unburdened mind. This way, you’ll be better prepared to establish harmonious office relationships and start spending comforting QT with your partner.
Like smudging with sage, smudging with Palo Santo is all about covering the space in which you need a boost of purified energy and want to attract all the good stuff with intention.
Consider what it is you'd like to bring into the room (calm? compassion? good vibes only?) and kick out of it (anger, frustration, generally bad juju)
LOVE, LIGHT AND HAPPY VIBES
