Dragon's Blood Sage: Once thought to be the blood of dragons that had perished in combat, Dragon's Blood is really the hardened resin of certain rare trees found in India and Sumatra. It has a natural red pigment and a haunting, earthy fragrance. Dragon Blood is used to add potency to spells, for protection, and to create a meditative atmosphere.
PRACTICE A SACRED TRADITION: Sage is a traditional medicine plant of the Native American peoples, used for healing and ceremony. It is used for cleansing and purification, and to open people up to a greater connection with the sacred. It is thought to banish negative energy, not only on the physical level, but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Sage has a very aromatic, sharp and stimulating smell, and its action works on all the senses.
Each bundle is naturally grown, without the use of pesticides, in California, USA.
Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) is an intensely aromatic tree native to South America. A relative of frankincense and myrrh, Palo Santo has a sweet scent with hints of vanilla, mint, and citrus. Its name translates to "Holy Wood" in Spanish and has been used by saints and shamans alike for centuries. When burned, Palo Santo releases a fragrant smoke which many believe to uplift energy and aid in spiritual purification. Use it to promote calm, relieve stress, and dispel misfortune. Burn it before meditation, to clear thoughts or focus concentration.
Instructions: Carefully light one end using a small flame. Allow end to burn for a few seconds, then quickly blow out flame. Place smoking stick on fire safe surface - e.g. metal or clay bowl, shell, crystal agate dish. Keep a small dish or cup of water nearby for quick distinguishing.
