▿ Believed to have both medicinal and therapeutic healing benefits, Bursera Graveolens also known as Palo Santo or Holy Wood, has long been burned by Incas, indigenous people of the Andes, Shamans and medicine people for spiritual purification, energy cleansing and healing. Well known for its ability to inspire creativity, evoke protection and infuse blessings, it is a wonderful tool to use prior and during meditation, as well as setting and sealing renewed intention
▿ One of the oldest and most well known aromatic plants used for smudging, sage has been used for centuries by Native Americans and healers for medicinal purposes. Sagebrush has healing properties with the sacred smoke used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged, purifying both the physical and spiritual bodies. Sage can be used as an "energetic shower" to wash away unwanted influences and any clinging energies before entering a sacred space, ritual or ceremony
▿ Linked with the crown chakra, known for deepening awareness and encouraging pure thoughts during meditation, white Copal resin helps to strengthen the auric body, removing all energy blockages. Ideal for clearing negative energy from a space to make way for positive change. Copal is known to invite a positive and peaceful energy into the home and uplift the sense in times of stress
+ In Australia, many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities collect and smoulder native Australian plants such as Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Ironwood and Acacia in smoke ceremonies to release their healing properties for particular ailments from grief to mental exhaustion, to promote overall health and physically or spiritually purify or cleanse negative energy, feelings or thoughts from a place or a person
