~ Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. ~ Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. ~ Allow it to burn for about 30 secs to 1 minute and then blow out. ~ Move about your workspace, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy. ~ For Cleansing/Purifying: Light the stick, allowing it to burn for a few seconds, before blowing the flame out. ~ Let it smoulder and then fan the smoke over Your Body, Any Room, Objects, or other items you wish to Cleanse /Purifying.
~ When finished, place the stick in a fireproof bowl of metal, glass, or clay. ~ The glow will end on its own unless you blow on the ember which will keep the smoke going. ~ Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
