The first thing you should know is that Palo Santo can be used when you do not want to be overwhelmed by the boost of positive vibrations. It is not as powerful as sage. It means that burning sage regularly is not advisable. That is why you should consider alternating the two from time to time.

While Palo Santo invites, Sage clears. The problem, however, is that you can be confused about the type of energy that Palo Santo is inviting and the one that sage is clearing.
It is important to remember that the intentions you set will bring power to the smudging action. You have to be present for the smudging procedure. That way, the herbs can do what you want.

Light a smudge stick and walk around your house while waving it around like incense (don’t wave too close to yourself or anyone else). This will help clear out negative energy from each room and expel any negative entities that may be hanging around.
To cleanse your house with Palo Santo, you can also use an oil diffuser or simply burn Palo Santo sticks on their own. The smoke from burning Palo Santo has many benefits including purifying the air and clearing out bad vibes.
