The natural death of a wise old limb or tree. (Palo Santo trees live for 80 to 90 years). After death, the tree must remain in its natural habitat for 4 to 10 years to complete its metamorphosis. Only then do its sacred, medicinal and mystical properties come alive. Palo Santo has been used for thousands of years in Peru and Ecuador by shamans and healers. Palo Santo is part of their ceremonies and healing rituals even today.
You will receive a bundle with approx. 3 to 5 pieces of this wonderfully magical wood. It is burned in very much the same way as sage. Light your stick. Allow it to burn for a moment then blow out the flame and use the smoke to "clear" your space. Smudging is like sweeping a room - except it's done with energy.
