LA FLORA SAGRADA
Palo Santo "Holy Wood"
Bundle of five palo santo sticks wrapped up with hemp.
The Andean indigenous Bursera Graveolens Tree naturally produces aromatic hypoallergenic resin that grows in concentration with age. The value of this sacred gift was clear from the first discovery of its lasting torchlight and beautiful scent. Bursera Graveolens lives for 40 to 90 years; after death, the wood matures four to ten more years before it "falls". Only then is it consecrated as "Sacred Wood" (Palo Santo).
Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to 1 minute and then blow out. Move about your workspace, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy. The rich smell will also bring peace and clarity to the moment along with good feelings. When finished, place the stick in a fire proof bowl of metal, glass or clay. The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going.
