Palo Santo “Sacred Wood” from Peru:
Palo Santo is a Sacred Wood from Peru. Is is highly regarded by indigenous people for its healing properties and rich aroma. Palo Santo is used for calming and grounding, spiritual purifying, energy cleansing, warding off negative emotions, inspiring creativity and cleansing crystals.
Crystals constantly pick up energy, which is why we recommend a regular cleansing. When a crystal is cleansed and activated, it radiates pure energy at the highest vibrations. A good time for a cleansing is right before setting your intention with your crystals. It also gives you a few moments to ensure that your crystal is clear of any previous programming or energy so that your crystal is ready to work with you. To cleanse and clear your crystal, fully envelop it in smoke from the sacred wood while asking the plant spirit o please remove and release any unwanted energy and previous programming.
Carry the abalone shell to catch any ashes. After cleansing with Palo Santo, you’ll notice that the air feels lighter and your crystals have an extra sparkly luster.
Typically, a cleansing should be done once or twice a week. If there has been an argument or someone is recovering from an illness, a daily cleansing can make a big difference. With more heavy vibes in the air than usual, you might notice that the space feels thick with stagnant energy. As the negativity is released, it needs somewhere to go, and a sacred wood cleansing is one of the quickest and most effective ways to neutralize and clear away dark energy.
