Palo Santo sticks come from the bursera graveolens tree in the South American rainforest and this truly unique aromatic wood is burned as incense. For centuries, before it was introduced to North America, it was used by Shamans to clear negative energy, attract positive energy, re-establish peace and balance, enhance concentration and meditation, and heal people on physical and spiritual levels.

How to use: Hold a piece of wood slightly upside down and light the tip until there is a small flame. After 1 minute, blow it out so only smoke is produced. Place it embers-up in a fireproof bowl and gently blow on the embers when needed. It may need to be re-lit several times. Some prefer to keep small rocks in a fireproof bowl and the put the embers into the rock bed in order to put it out when finished. The stick can be reused several times until it is too small to burn.
