Smudging With Palo Santo

Palo Santo sticks have been used by shaman and medicine men and women for years in sacred ceremonies. Most commonly, they’re used for smudging, cleansing, purifying, healing, and as incense or tea. Bonus: they're perfect for clearing the air after cooking a smelly dish.

How to use your Palo Santo Sticks: Hold the end of your Palo Santo Stick under a flame until it ignites. Let burn for approximately 10-30 seconds. Gently fan or blow out the flame and let it smoke as you smudge. After you are finished cleansing, place sticks in a fire-safe bowl and let it extinguish itself. May be used multiple times.
