Palo Santo Aromatic Wood
Palo Santo Cones (x 5) Handmade in Ecuador using Palo Santo wood and water. Nothing synthetic added.
One cone burns for around 30 minutes.
Sustainably harvested in the dry, tropical forests of Ecuador on the coast of the South Pacific, Palo Santo aromatic wood has a fresh and uplifting intense aroma with notes of citrus, vanilla and spice. Warmly comforting and inspiring, it can be burned to achieve clearing of energies and is an excellent aid to creative practices, ritual practices and meditation. It is believed to not only cleanse negative energies, but to attract positive ones. The oils that give Palo Santo its distinctive fragrance are only found in trees that have fallen naturally and been left untouched to dry and cure for 3-10 years, during which time the oils in the sap crystallise, creating the powerful aromatic properties. Part of the Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal family, Palo Santo is believed to have remarkable healing properties due to the high levels of brain-oxygenating terpenes: alleviating depression, stress, and calming the immune and nervous systems. The name ‘Palo Santo’ translates as ‘Holy Wood’ and it has been used for thousands of years by shamans in Central and South America for its purification properties, its first use dating back to the ancient Incan Empire who revered it for its spiritual, emotional and physical purification properties.
Light by holding a flame to the tip of the cone for around 20 seconds, blow out and then blow on the glowing ember… Sit the cone in a heat-resistant container. As these cones contain no synthetic additives or combustion aids, they may need relighting on occasion.
