The name Palo Santo literally meaning Holy Wood says it all. This strong woody scent is traditionally used in Latin America to clear the energy and in healing. Extracted from the wood using distillation this oil is extremely concentrated and is a great alternative to burning sticks. Spray this around you and your space to rid yourself of unwanted energy and energetic attachments.
Use these positive thoughts when using Palo Santo:
Affirmation: I am mindful of the energetic connections between others and myself. I automatically remove unhealthy cords of attachment that affect me mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I am grounded and focused.

” Sacred Wood Used for Smudging
Palo Santo is a sacred wood that when translated means “holy wood.” It has been used for centuries by the Inca as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing. My first encounter with palo santo was while I was training with a Peruvian medicine man. He burned it as he opened the circle to share what he knew about spirituality and spiritual healing. The stick of wood is lit, and then the smoke that arises from it can be moved into your energy field to clear misfortune, negative thoughtforms, and “bad spirits.”
Palo santo reestablishes balance and peace within the environment. It is often used in meditation practices. I prefer to burn palo santo in the stick form separately from my smudge blend. Probably because it is such a calming and soothing scent filled with powerful energy. “
