Welcome to an experience!
Disclaimer - I'm still totally obsessed with White Sage, Palo Santo, Smudging and burning resins.
Now that that's out of the way I can regale my intent behind this second instalment of My Soapy Smudge Journey.
If the first smudge soap taught me nothing else it was that there's something to be said about surrounding your spirit with positivity.
My Palo Santo Experience Smudge Soap contains a moon-blessed olive oil infusion of Palo Santo Smudge Sticks, milled Palo Santo and White Sage leaves.
This Smudge Soap has been scented with Palo Essential Oil, complimented with essential oils of Rosewood & Lemon and is the same blend I use in my Palo Santo Experience Smudge Perfume.
I feel the medicinal benefits from the soft floral fragrance of the Rosewood brings something romantic and healing to this blend.
The aroma of Palo Santo Essential Oil is described as having .. 'sweetly familiar woody notes not unlike Frankincense, with top notes being a citrusy lemon and a subtle hint of mint.'
Emotionally, Palo Santo Essential Oil is grounding and elicits a sense of peacefulness and calm. Like Frankincense, Palo Santo is a natural anti-anxiety.
My affirmation inspiration for this soap is a quote by Karen Salmansohn.
"You can’t be both awesome and negative. Choose one."
On a tangent..
Did you know that we have 50,000 - 70,000 thoughts per day? I wonder how many of those thoughts are directed inwards? And how many of THOSE that are directed towards ourselves are positive?
We can be our own worst enemies, showing ourselves none of the compassion, empathy and love that we willingly give away to others.
Palo Santo Essential Oil is good for-
- Enhances creativity
- A meditation tool
- Helps to calm, ground, and settle
- Spiritually uplifting
- Improves immune system
- Relieves inflammation and pain
- Supports a healthy nervous system
- Reduces panic, anxiety, and insomnia
- Lessens allergy symptoms.
Lemon essential oil benefits your skin by reducing acne, nourishing damaged skin and hydrating the skin.
Lemon oil has a purifying, cleansing and protective effect on the body. It helps to defend the body against harmful pathogens and promotes detoxification through the blood and liver. Lemon oil also stimulates lymphatic drainage, which helps the body to cleanse itself of wastes and toxins.
Rosewood Essential Oil - This essential oil can take away your depression and leave you smiling within minutes. The mild, sweet, spicy, and floral aroma of this oil does the trick and is why I chose it in my blend.
Rosewood drives away sadness and disappointment and prepares you to take on life with a new and positive perspective. It can be very good for those who recently failed or are feeling down, whether it is in terms of academics, professional situations, or relationships.
Rosewood contains antiseptic properties that will help prevent wounds and cuts from getting infected, as well as stimulate faster healing. It also helps treat colds, coughs and sinusitis.
This soap was made using organic shea butter and sooooo much kaolin clay. I always have coconut cream added as well as bamboo silk.
The Palo Santo Experience is available unfragranced also. This soap contains the same olive oil infusion and is lovely, smells earthy and settling, and is just as wonderful to use.
My first smudge soap using resins and white sage is a beautiful, creamy natural soap. It is my Grounding Soap containing a resin & white sage olive oil infusion.. ... Follow this link to check it out!
