for cleansing, purifying, and protecting. the use of sage [particulary smoke] as a cleansing agent is an ancient practice. it rids the mind, body, and soul of negative energies. burning sage in the home or office space also rids the space of negative energies and spirits. the smoke from this sacred herb is not only vital for spiritual cleansing, but it also cleanses the respiratory system when inhaled.
palo santo is most commonly used for purifying the energy field, inspiring creativity, promoting protection, attracting good fortune and love. it clears negative energy, just like sage, but it has the added benefit of replacing the negative energy that was dispelled with positive energy. palo santo raises your vibration and the vibration of the space you're in, allowing you to connect to the Divine. I use it daily, because the sweet aroma is energizing and lifts my spirits as I prepare to tackle my to-do list!
my daily morning meditation routine consists of burning sage and palo santo along with the use of crystals, which drastically increase the benefits. crystals can diminish the impact of negatives energies on the physical body and the emotions, increase feelings of comfort and safety, or even promote love. for every human emotion there is a crystal companion that will soothe, enhance, or negate its effects.
