Palo Santo sticks for blessings or clearing any space.
For centuries, Palo Santo, which translated means “holy wood,” has been burned as an energy cleanser. The ritual comes from Incan tradition that says the smoke from the wood, burned during spiritual ceremonies, is medicinal.
Native Americans, South American shamans believed burning Palo Santo have similar properties capable of resetting energy tainted by negativity or conflict. It also is thought to neutralize issues before they ever start. It even has the power to attract sacredness and benevolence to a space.
Palo santo may be burned, similar to incense. In Peru, a shaman or medicine man lights palo santo sticks and the rising smoke will enter the "energy field" of ritual participants to "clear misfortune, negative thought prints, and 'evil spirits'".
