How do I use the Palo Santo incense?

Set your intention for the ritual, ceremony, purification, or healing at the outset. Always burn Palo Santo with a pure, heartfelt purpose. Its power should be respected, therefore only burn a small amount of it. After that, ignite the incense stick and let it burn for a few seconds before extinguishing the flame. Then you light the incense stick and let the smoke drift over your body, an object you’d like to clean, or an entire room or house.

When burning incense, stay present as long as the wood smokes. Always use a non-flammable dish. Rinse the tip under running water once you’ve finished with the incense, and make sure that the embers are completely extinguished.
