Palo Santo. A wonderous treasure of nature who gives you emotional, spiritual and mental peace of mind. Not only does the Holy Wood spread a lovely, warm scent, it also cleanses your home from negative energies. A treat to start the day or after a long day of worrying.
Shamans, Maya's and Inca's used this wood during their rituals for its healing, cleansing and energizing function. Even today the wood is often used when suffering from different ailments like colds, flu, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, abdominal pain and rheumatism. But also just for its great and soothing smell.
My daily ritual.
I really enjoy this Palo Santo every morning during my meditation. De scent brings me in a relaxed mood and takes me to age old forests with meandering rivers. Furthermore the idea of removing negative energy from my home has a calming and peaceful effect on my mind.
How to use.
Palo Santo wood is used like an incense. You light one end of the stick while holding it at a 45 degree angle, let it burn for about 30 to 40 seconds and blow out the flame again. The cabbage glows for a while and spreads its sweet, warm scent. Put him on a plate and nature does the rest.
