Palo Santo or "holy wood", is the wood of a tree that grows on the coast of South America.
Burning this wood is a spiritual practice called smudging, used for cleansing, healing, and purification.
Its scent is very soothing and refreshing.
Light the stick until it flames, allowing it to burn for about 30 seconds, then blow it out.
With a specific intention in mind, use the smoke to cleanse the aura, space, and objects.
