Palo Santo is Spanish for holy wood, and you'll realize how it came to have such a complimentary name when you inhale its sweet scent. Palo Santo Wood is a sacred wood that comes from the Palo Santo tree. When it is burned, the smoke is believed to have medicinal and therapeutic healing power. Palo santo wood starts a fire within your soul, and lets the smoke of your burning passion carry your intentions out into the universe. As you burn this sacred wood, feel it inspire your creativity, clear your negative energy and bring love and fortune onto your horizon.
Sage is a plant whose scent is revered for its ability to purify, protect and elevate space. Not exclusive to space, sage leaves are also a powerful ally for easing emotional flurries, and freeing the spirit up to accept the light of positivity. The influence that burning sage can have on one’s spirit and space lies within their intention.
For sage cleansing to work, you must focus your energy on a clear intention before burning it. With a raised awareness, we ascend beyond the energy clogs that blocked our intentions from maturing into reality. We are able to see situations more clearly, and our mind becomes open to forgiveness, compromise and other forms of emotional progress.
Regular cleansing of the home keeps negative or spent energy from settling into your space. Use the tools in this kit to cleanse your space after exercising, having a party, a breakup, arguments, suffering a loss, an illness or any time when a lot of energy has been released into your space. In general, making energy cleansing a regular part of your home cleaning process will ensure that your space is always a high-vibing haven for you to relax in.
Place your charcoal in a fireproof dish, a bowl filled with rice or an incense burner. Light the charcoal until you can see flickering embers and sparks all over it. (If you do not heat the charcoal to the point where it lights, it will not be hot enough and your sage leaves will not begin to smoke). Place a little pile of palo santo wood chips on top of the charcoal to purify and clear your energy and environment.
Your home should be a place where you can relax and rejuvenate for the day ahead. To keep your home vibing with positive energy, it’s important to cleanse the space. In fact, we recommend doubling down on your energy cleansing by also burning Sage Leaves, an earthy smell that helps balance the sweet smell of palo santo. When you burn both of these cleansing tools, first the cleansing sage and then the uplifting palo santo, it makes your purifying practice even more powerful.
Ask the plant medicine spirit of the palo santo to be there with you, and ask that it assist in purifying and cleansing you, your space, and your crystals.
Sage your space. Open your front door and all of the windows in the house to allow the unwanted energy to be released. Say these words out loud or silently: “I ask that the plant spirit of Palo Santo please bring blessings into the space.'”
While you are cleansing your home with sage, take this time to also cleanse your crystal collection. Let the smoke of burning sage completely envelop each gemstone while you thoughtfully remind yourself of the intention you have set for it. Ask that the burning sage cleanse and activate its frequencies, releasing it from any previous programming or unwanted energy.
Finally, to clear away any unwanted energy from any hands that have touched your crystals before you, immerse them in the sacred smoke of the sage. White sage is a powerful cleansing tool, especially when you use it with clear and focused intention.
