Palo Santo or “Holy Wood” is a sustainably harvested wild tree that grows in the dry forests of Ecuador and other tropical regions of the Americas. After about 40 years of growth the tree dies, where it needs to lay for 10 more years before beginning any processing. For centuries, its wood, leaves, and oil have been used by indigenous shamans to heal the body and soul. These incense sticks are made from ground palo santo. Burn to clear energy and aid in ritual practice or meditation with this calming and soothing scent. Choose between a box of eight or fourteen. Approximate burn time is 45 minutes.
Approximate measurements: 4” long.
