Palo santo is a small thing in my life that brings me so much joy. You may have heard of it before, but here's a brief overview of what this little stick of wood is and what it does.
Palo santo is a holy wood. It's been used since the time of ancient Indians, and it has been used for a wide range of purposes throughout time. Palo santo has so many benefits, including clearing negative energy, relieving cold symptoms, helping the nervous system, and reducing anxiety, depression, and headaches. There are also many more proven benefit of palo santo!
To use palo santo, you simply burn the end of the stick and let it catch a flame. Don't let the flame burn too long- you only need it lit for a second to get it going. Once you get a flame, blow it out and let the palo santo smoke. You can either place it in a clay/fire resistant dish to let it smoke out, or you can bring it to each place in your room or house that needs energy cleared to spread the smoke, and then put it in a dish when you're done.
I love palo santo, and use it whenever I'm not feeling like my usual self, or when I'm feeling really down. It smells so nice, and it really helps to keep me grounded and can set me straight when I'm feeling bad. I also use palo santo when I'm meditating to ground me and focus my soul. It really calms me down and makes me feel super zen and groovy.
