The Class by Taryn Toomey
Cleanse and clear your space.
This bundle of sage, selenite, and palo santo is perfect for creating a ritual and for gift-giving to yourself and others.
Choose either sage or palo santo, light, and allow the smoke to cleanse the energy around you. Sit tall. Close your eyes. Lay your hands on your heart and breathe deeply. Create an intention for this time with yourself. Drop inward, maintaining your steady, easy breath.
Do you feel that? Remember. That's you.
Palo Santo, or “holy wood” in Spanish, is a sacred tree that grows in parts of South America. The history of Palo Santo dates back to the Inca era and it has been used by North American Indigenous communities in spiritual ceremonies, herbal healings, and sacred practices for centuries. Shamans used Palo Santo for its physical and spiritual healing properties, helping to restore the physical and energetic body, purify and cleanse space, and attract positive energy.
The practice of burning sage, or smudging, is an ancient spiritual ritual rooted in Native American culture. For centuries, Indigenous tribes have burned white sage, or “Sacred Sage”, for ceremonial purposes to cleanse, purify, and pray. When burned, sage is intended to rid negative energy and has been a means for Native cultures to commune with the spirit of the plant and earth.
Though most commonly used for ceremony and prayer, Palo Santo and sage have also been used by Indigenous cultures for their medicinal purposes, helping to relieve symptoms of the common cold and flu to symptoms of menstruation and anxiety.
The Class honors the sacredness of Palo Santo and sage and respects the origins and traditions in which they are rooted. Our Palo Santo and Sage are sustainably and ethically sourced from vendors we trust, harvested in a way that is both respectful to the environment and the spiritual properties of these medicinal plants.
