Newly formulated Palo Santo incense that is smooth and sweet, accentuating the soothing and warming properties of this magical wood, and highlighting its aesthetic qualities.
Palo Santo has a strong, affirmative presence, and on its own there is a certain sharpness to its resinous-woody-balsamic character. In this special incense blend, I have attempted to soften its rough edges, and bring forth a new quality I found in it while meditating on the wood alone: the thick smoke from smudging creates a feeling of being hugged from the inside, and a profound sense of being supported and cared for.
It is paired with sandalwood, vanilla, tonka bean, cinnamon and and a unique combination of wood binders that gives it a soft, sweet smoke and creates a warm, cozy feeling that will make your home feel cozy and protected.
Palo Santo is a sacred tree that grows in the Rainforests of Central and South America, where it has been used for time immemorial in smudging ceremonies and healing rituals. It is grounding, balancing, promotes mental health as it is both uplifting, energizing and protective. Palo Santo develops the essential oils and resin that give it its unique perfume only after the tree dies down, teaching us that even after death, separation and endings there is hope for beauty and strength.
Palo Santo incense cones are hand-rolled in the traditional East-Indian method, made only from finely ground botanicals: Palo santo wood, sandalwood, cinnamon, vanilla and tonka bean, and bound with natural gums or wood bark. No saltpetre or charcoal used in these cones.
Each box contains a dozen cones.
