For health and wellbeing benefits; it is often used for headaches, common colds and flu, asthma sufferers and for stress and anxiety.
Use with reverence and gratitude.
Hold the Palo Santo stick on a 45-degree angle down towards the flame of either a match, lighter or candle. Ignite and allow to burn for 30 secs. Blow out any flame and allow to smolder. Work your way around the room in a clockwise direction from the ground upwards or on the physical self, begin at the heart centre and fan the smoke up towards your throat then up and over the head and down towards the ground. Re light whenever needed.
Palo Santo can be reused. To extinguish place into dry sand or heat proof bowl.
Palo Santo is a product of Ecuador and has been harvested without harming the Palo Santo tree. The mystical spirit of this wood must be respected which is why the tree must not be cut down, only wood that has been found to have died naturally is used.
