This holy tree is often used by Indigenous Amazonian and Andean healers in sacred plant spirit ceremonies. The rising smoke enters the energy field to clear misfortune, negative thoughts and to chase away evil spirits. Its use dates back to the pre-Colombian Andean and amazonian civilizations.
History: It is believed that a tree or fallen branches must lie dead for 4-10 years before the medicinal and mystical properties of the wood begin to come alive. It is also believed that the branches of the Palo Santo that are felled by lightning have the highest concentration of medicinal and mystical properties.
Suggested Use: Place the tip of the incense stick in a flame until it catches fire. The flame will die out quickly and the embers will remain. Excellent to cleanse for rituals like divination as well as meditation, yoga, and other practices. It is recommended to use a fireproof bowl or plate to catch the embers and ashes. When finished, tamp out the incense in a heatproof bowl. Do not leave burning and unattended.
Size: Comes with 8 compressed incense sticks
