Palo Santo “Holy Wood”
Palo Santo is part of the citrus family it has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon. This mystical tree grows on the coast of South America, it is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal.
Palo Santo is known for its energetically healing and cleansing properties similar to Sage or Cedar. It creates a pleasant, fresh smoke that has an uplifting scent that raises your vibration. When used before meditation it can help with a deeper connection to yourself and God. The heavenly presence of Palo Santo keeps energies grounded and clear. It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open to its magic.
The way I use Palo Santo is by burning a stick of it. Start by using a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick, allow it to burn for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then blow out. Use anywhere you would like to clear the energy, certain rooms in your home, yourself, the office or your car. The rich smell will bring peace and clarity to the moment and an overall good feeling. The burnt end will go out on its own signaling the end of the session, if you think you want more simply relight the stick. Please, always use caution and respect when working with fire.
Just one more tip, the healing benefits of Palo Santo essential oil can be used for relieving common colds, flu symptoms, stress, headaches, anxiety, depression and emotional pain. It is also good for calming the immune and nervous systems for faster recovery of illness, as well as for physical pain and inflammation.
