Palo Santo

I miss burning my incense and my essential oils these days, but I can’t take the risk of them potentially harming my Cinnamon girl. Just burning a candle made a her sneeze up a storm the other day, so I have to be careful and refrain. Especially since living in such tight quarters. Maybe one day in a slightly larger abode it will be ok when the space isn’t so confined. But that doesn’t keep me from sharing one of my favorites with you today, and all the great benefits associated with Palo Santo. You might as well sit back because by the time you read about the wonderful things it can help you with, I am sure you’ll be wanting to go and get some for yourself. So here we go…

1. Supports the body’s natural immune defenses

2. Joint and muscle pain reducer

3. Supports the body’s natural detoxification abilities

4. Reduces nervous tension, panic & anxiety while enhancing relaxation

5. Turns off inflammatory responses from poor diet, histamines, seasonal allergies, stress & illness

6. Helps recover from illness, emotional pain and fatigue

7. Combats migraines

8. Increases blood flow

9. Fights & prevents infections & viruses

10. Natural bug repellent



We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

    1. Yes me too and that’s why I haven’t burned them lately although I could greatly benefit from the anti inflammatory properties for my rheumatoid arthritis and more. But then on the other hand, I can’t take that risk having a dog. It smells wonderful though and it looks just like a small piece of wood.
