These thin Palo Santo Wood Sticks are ideal for use with smudging. Palo Santo is known for its properties to aid in clearing bad energy, providing spiritual protection and bringing good luck.
Palo Santo - Blessing and Purification. Palo Santo is literally the Saint Tree. Used for centuries in Peru and Ecuador for spiritual ceremonies. Burn chips as you would incense or smudge sticks; light, allow to burn momentarily, blow out flame and fan ember. May need to be re-lit. "Wash" persons, places, or property with the smoke. The more the chip is lit, the easier it is to keep the ember going.
Smudging is the cleansing of auras and energies of a person or space. Lighting the bundle and using the smoke around the person or space along with visualizing the removal of negative energy forms the ritual of smudging.
Using a smudging tool is part of many wiccan/pagan Traditions. The burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification is also common practice among many religious, healing, and spiritual groups. In theory, the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy.
