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 Ecuador; It is described to have a fine aroma of cedar +citrus, considered unique and incomparable.
|Common uses of Palo Santo|
The Shamans in Ecuador and all over South America use the smoke of this wood for cleansing the energy of a person or a place, especially in ceremonies in the jungle. Everyone in Ecuador knows that if you burn palo santo in your house, it will be blessed with good energies, good for you, your family, and your projects. The smell of Palo Santo puts you in a good meditative state. Burned similarly to other incense by lighting shavings of palo santo wood, the scent keeps spiritual “bad energy” away, according to mystics.
|How to Use Palo Santo Stick|
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 an 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.
Gently blow out the flame by either slightly moving the stick side to side or blowing on it carefully. When you first light the wood, it may burn with black smoke as if it is on fire. Once you blow it out, you will see the white “cleansing and fragrant” smoke. When lit on fire, it heats the oils inside the wood and releases them, and burns off.
The stick can then be placed on a holder, such as the Tagua holder, or dish or move around the area you wish to cleanse and allow the smoke to drift. Palo Santo sticks are not meant to be lit for a long period of time; if needed, you may relight the sticks as many times as needed. When the sticks are dark, burnt looking, they will work just as well and will be just as fragrant if not more.
