Palo santo has been used for hundreds of years as tools for cleansing and purification. It grows in South America and this wood has come from naturally fallen trees. It's name means 'holy wood' in Spanish. It is related to frankincense, myrrh, and copal.
It is commonly used in rituals and ceremonies to invoke sages and wisdom spirits to help in connecting to the earth, promoting healing and for the highest benefit of all living beings. It invites creativity, love, and prosperity.
Use this smudge stick to waft the wood's smoke into the air or around objects to clear spaces, people, crystals, gemstone jewelry, or other objects of negative energy and impart positive vibes.
Each bundle comes with three wood sticks that measure approximately 4" in length. They are wrapped with hand cut fabric ribbon to add a colorful spirit. Ribbon color and pattern may vary. Ribbon and string should be removed before lighting the palo santo. It can easily be tied back to preserve your sticks for later use. With this decorative ribbon, it may also be used to add a boho spirit to your home decor and serve as a reminder of ancient traditions that integrate the natural world seamlessly with daily life with the recognition that we are but a small part of a bigger cosmic dance. And it makes a beautiful gift!
