Meditation smudges

Palo Santo:

In Spanish, Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) means Holy Tree, it grows plentifully in South America and has been used by medicine men for centuries during ritual prayers, ceremonies and during treatment, it has metaphysical and cleansing properties to remove negative energy, and the first mentions date back to the Inca tribes. The peoples of South America believe that cleansing with the Palo Santo smoke promotes good life, brings happiness and attracts life opportunities.

A legend has it that when the world was inhabited by just a handful of people, the most righteous of them – Cosakait – fell in love with a girl who, unfortunately, did not reciprocate his feelings. The man broke down and became ill and the illness brought him to his death bed. Before he departed, he promised that he would always be near the girl he loved. Cosakait said that he would decorate her head with flowers, drive away insects, and he would also change water that she touches with her mouth to make it sweet. A tree grew next to his burial site, it had a subtle smell, and when burnt – it exuded a stronger aroma. The legend says that it was the Palo Santo – the symbol of love and longing for an unfulfilled love. The Tobas tribe believed the tree to be holy.

Having discovered this legend, we want to introduce an element of magic into our homes.


Cedar is referred to as the sacred plant and means „the power of spiritual strength”. It has been used for centuries in many cultures for purification ceremonies, meditations and other sacred rituals. As incense, it has aromatherapeutic properties – helping to cleanse the room, attract positive energy and fill it with high vibrations. It also provides protection from negative forces and feelings. Cedar together with its intense and woody fragrance provides peace of mind, harmony and balance.

Tip on how to cleanse your home: burn incense, moving it clockwise, paying special attention to windows, doors, and corners. Incense your belongings with cedar by as if immersing them in the smoke. After you have finished, air the house well to remove all the heavy energy that has been collected by the cedar. You can also cleanse the energy of yourself and other people. To do so, light the cedar incense and make movements with it – from the ground to the head, at the front and back of the body and on the sides.
