Palo Santo Bundle
Mme Formtastica’s holy wood bundle consists of 3 Palo Santo Sticks from a fair trade corporation in South America.
My Palo Santo sticks come from trees that die in a natural way, during this process of decomposition the tree is compressed, secreting its oil and acquiring its medicinal and aromatic properties.
Palo Santo is a sacred wood that has healing properties and is native to the coast of South America. In Spanish, Palo Santo means “holy wood” or wood of the saints. It is a strong medicine that has been popularised for its heavenly presence in keeping energies grounded and clear. The aroma is just incredible, very fresh with hints of mint and citrus, proving to be one of the most fragrant woods. It confers extraordinary blessings to those who use it.
Smudging, the ritual burning of holy herbs or wood, is done to clear a space or person of negative energies. If your home feels stale or sad, if an argument has taken place and the air still hums with anger, if unpleasant energy lingers after a visitor – these are times to smudge. One may also smudge one’s self to banish anger, ailment, sadness or illness.
Our physical eyes can’t perceive the toxins and energies that are floating around in the air, but our physical, emotional and soul body can feel it. By burning wood or incense as the ancients did, we can purify our spaces, body, auras, and all crystals we store.
- Burn Palo Santo for healing or cleaning and as natural incense
- Use a shell or heatproof bowl as a resting place for your smudge kit
- Use a Feather as a smudge fan to guide the smoke + stagnant energy into the wind to be cleansed
- Meditate with your crystal, then cleanse it with your palo santo stick or under the moonlight
This bundle contains 3 Fair Palo Santo Sticks – appr. 12 cm
Before you get started, it’s important to understand the deep symbolism that underlies the ceremony and each of the objects used in a typical smudge. There are centuries of wisdom woven into this process. Smudging is ceremony, and when you’re in ceremony, all parts of your being need to be in ceremony.
