Palo Santo Stick
The Palo Santo Stick comes from a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. The wood is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal. In Spanish, Palo Santo literally means ‘Holy Wood’. The wood is burned in spiritual ceremonies by Shamans for its energetically cleansing and healing properties.

To burn the palo santo, hold one end and light the other end over a fireproof dish. You will need to keep the flame on the palo santo for a bit until it catches. Let it burn for a short time and then blow it out. Waft the smoke around the item/ room/ person you are cleansing and use your intention to clear it of negative energy.
Repeat the lighting and blowing out until you have finished. You can leave it to go out by itself on the fireproof dish.
Bursera graveolens, known in Spanish as palo santo (“holy stick”), is a wild tree native from the Yucatán Peninsula to Peru and Venezuela.
Palo santo is used to produce burning sticks and incense. The production of essential oil is also very popular.
