Daily Rituals: Palo Santo


A favorite daily ritual of mine is lighting Palo Santo around the home to prepare for the day with intention. Not does it fill the home with a pleasant and warm smell, it also cleanses negative energy. Palo Santo, also known as Holy Wood, has been used for centuries as a cleansing, soothing, and energizing incense. The precious, aromatherapeutic wood in this bundle is harvested from naturally fallen branches off the Palo Santo tree in Ecuador—it’s clean, eco-friendly, and smells amazing. . . even when unlit! 

To use, simply light one end, hold at a 45 degree angle, allow to burn for about 30 seconds, then blow it out. Place in dish and allow to burn out. It has a nice, delicate fragrance when placed around the house in an unburned pile as well!
