Hand-crafted Tagua holder; Tagua is a palm-like tree that grows throughout South America, most commonly in Ecuador. It is known as “vegetable ivory”; it is a cruelty-free mineral.
*Please keep in mind, sizes, colors, and shapes vary as they are hand-crafted*
The tag nut hardens and thickens as the tree starts to grow, growing in size inside its’ pod. Once the seeds are picked, they are laid to dry in the sun. Once dried, they are polished and carved; resulting in a smooth, shiny textured bead. These Tagua holders are kept as their natural color.
The perfect beautiful vegan, eco-conscious addition to your home.
PALO SANTO (Bursera Graveolens) which in Spanish translates to Holy Wood, is the best, high-quality incense stick. This wood is hand-harvested and handcrafted by artisans, with no chemicals or oils added, producing natural, very fragrant resin. This wood is sustainably harvested from sacred trees that have been naturally dead for 3-5 years in the tropical dry forests of Peru; It is described to have a fine aroma of cedar +citrus, considered unique and incomparable.

|How to Use|
Hold the stick tilting down over a flame for about 30 seconds to a minute; you can use a lighter, match, or even a candle. The more resin, the longer you’ll need to let it burn to ignite it properly as the resins burn off. Highly resinous sticks may drip, what may appear as oil, from the wood as you light it. This does not mean it is dipped in oil; these are the natural resins inherent in the wood itself.
Palo Santo is a sacred incense used by Andean and Amazonian shamans in Peru. Palo Santo has been used all over South America; the smoke of this wood for cleansing the energy of a person or a place, especially in ceremonies in the jungle. The smell of Palo Santo puts you in a good meditative state. Drinking the tea of this wood is good for stimulating the immune system and fighting inflammation. Burning dried wood from the “mystical” palo santo tree and collecting its concentrated oils have been widely used in folk medicines and by shamans (“medicine men”) for centuries because of the tree’s perceived spiritual applications.
