Palo Santo has a long spiritual history. References to this tree date back to the Incan era, when it was used in rituals and ceremonies throughout Amazonia.

Palo Santo grows wild in the tropical dry forests of Ecuador, Peru and the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. It does not look particularly beautiful or impressive but what it offers is very rare, unusual and magical. Spanish monks who discovered the tree centuries ago, named it “palo santo” - “holy wood” or “the wood of the saints.”

Healers and shamans of South America believe that Palo Santo has a strong spirit that has to be treated with respect. The spirit continues to live in the wood long after the tree has fallen, and when treated properly, will assist in restoring your physical and energetic wellbeing. This is one of the reasons that properly harvested Palo Santo trees are never cut down, and the wood and essential oils can only be extracted no earlier than 3 years after the natural death of the tree. 

Cosmos Healing's Palo Santo is ethically sourced from Northern Peru and is certified by the Peruvian Government, guaranteeing you that this palo santo is authentic and only comes from fallen trees, NO DEFORESTATION! ❤

  • Open the windows and pull back the curtains to allow the air to flow freely. 
  • Set your intention (what you wish to achieve from cleansing your space).
  • Light the stick using a candle.
  • Some people hold stick in their hand and waft the smoke around but it is also possible to put the stick in an candle holder and direct the smoke with a large feather.
  • When you are ready, go around the room in a methodical fashion moving in a clockwise direction. Include all the corners going from top to bottom (or bottom to top). You can waft the smoke underneath desks and tables, behind doors and sideboards, over and around objects in the room including the sofa and plants.
  • Pay attention to anywhere you feel might be a hotspot for negative energy to have collected. Maybe there is a certain seat someone sits in who is angry, depressed or negative? Maybe there is a certain place where a falling out occurred or cross words were exchanged?
  • Watch and pay attention to the patterns and shapes of the smoke. You might notice interesting things as you move around the room. You can also repeat a prayer or mantra such as "I cleanse this space of all negative energy. May only light and love reside here."
  • You can smudge one room or move slowly and go through every room in the house at your own pace.
  • Once your smudging practice has concluded, extinguish the stick in your bowl or in soil in the garden.
