Taino Smudge Kit Cleansing White Sage Salvia Palo Santo
Smudge kits are usually used to perform spiritual cleanses, specially when moving into a new home, room or office. The kit helps create positive energy when tense or in negative moods. Most use them for meditation, spiritual awareness and as previously stated for home blessings.
Native Americans and other indigenous peoples have burned sage for centuries as part of a spiritual ritual to cleanse a person or space, and to promote healing and wisdom. Tainos used about 40 to 50 common medicinal plants, most of which are picked by behiques based on traditional knowledge. Now days that amount has increased with the recovery of our culture passed down by traditions from our own families and deep scientific studies all over the planet that have proven plants help with mental and physical diseases.
Kit Includes: A magnificent 4"-5" Jicara bowl with a rope base for balance with manually carved symbolic Taino markings (usually depicted in pottery and musical instruments), 3 aromatic palo santo sticks with the words ATABEY, YUCAHU and Jajom burnt within the stick, a powerful 4"-5" Sage bundle wrapped around with petals of the Royal Poinciana flower scientifically called Delonix regia. A dry Delonix regiadry Flower will be included in future sales.

Palo Santo or Holy Stick when burned is believed to have natural healing powers. Used in rituals to help alive emotional trauma, stress, and to set and seal your positive intentions.
The flower of the Poinciana tree or Franboyan in spanish, scientifically called Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, subfamily Caesalpinioideae native to Madagascar. It is noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of orange-red flowers over summer. In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name royal poinciana, flamboyant, flame of the forest, or flame tree (one of several species given this name). In the Caribbean it is featured in many Dominican and Puerto Rican paintings. In the town of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, there is a place nicknamed "El Valle de los Flamboyanes" ("The Valley of the Poinciana Trees"). So we had to include this magnificent flower petals to our own personal kit.
