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 method, made only from finely ground botanicals: Palo santo wood, marigold petals and yerba santa leaves, bound with natural gums or wood bark. No saltpetre or charcoal used in these cones. Cones are generally faster burning than a thick joss stick (range of burning time may be from 7-15min, and produce more smoke. They are more convenient to burn while traveling and outdoors, and they stand on their own base, and therefore don't really require special equipment or vessels.
Burning instruction: Prepare a heat-proof vessel, on a sturdy surface away from flammables and out of reach of children and animals. To prevent scorch marks, it is recommended that you layer some sand, earth or ash on the vessel. Place the cone and light the tip of it, and allow the flame to extinguish. Because these are handmade cones, each has a different burning times.
Each box contains a dozen cones.
