Beautifully aromatic, sacred wood from South America
These Palo Santo Sticks (translated from Spanish into Sacred Wood) are the sustainably harvested Bursera graveolens from South America, not the similarly named Bulnesia sarmientoi which is threatened with extinction.
When burned, the Palo Santo releases a beautiful woody scent peppered with citrus and minty notes.
Palo Santo Sticks are commonly used for smudging and space clearing, as a natural incense (a fireproof receptacle is a must) and also a great insect repellant.
How to use your Palo Santo stick
Light the Palo Santo stick and then hold it downwards at a 45 degree angle to allow the flame to burn upwards through the stick. Allow it to burn for 30 seconds before blowing it out. The stick should smoulder for around five minutes but can be relit as needed.
NB: Abalone shell is not included (available separately).
