The idea of flowing or lingering energy has lived for thousands of years. Cultures around the world have believed that a person's energy is like perfume, and that once you come in contact with someone else's energy, good or bad, it tends to linger. So... what's there to do about it? Cleanse the space of course!
Both sage and palo santo work separately to cleanse a space. But, they can be even more powerful in tandem. Either way, it's pretty important to know the history behind why we do what we do, and best practices.
