1. Light Palo Santo stick and let it glow for a few moments.
2. Blow out or fan out the flame and waft smoke around your space.
3. These sticks exstinguish on their own, however it is advised to keep a heat proof dish during your smudging ritual to catch any ashes or hold your smoldering stick.
If you are finished using the Palo Santo before it has been exstinguished, you can simply tamp it out in an ash tray or dish of sand.
Never leave burning items unattended. Keep burning items away from flammable materials.
