Product Details

Made by Incausa. Includes 9 incense sticks.

Artisanal Palo Santo wood, Breu resin blend. The Bursera graveolens Tree, from the Burseraceae Family, also known as Torchwood or Incense family, naturally produces an aromatic non-allergenic resin that increases in concentration with age. The Holy wood we use comes from trees that have already completed their life cycle and “die” naturally, from 40 to 90 years. Once the tree has fallen, an alchemical process of natural transformation that lasts between 4 and 10 years takes place. Only after that time has past does the wood receives its aromatic and healing properties and is consecrated as "Holy Wood" (Palo Santo).

It is said that the spirits of the palo santo trees materialize in the essential oil and are responsible for its special qualities. The Palo Santo has always been linked to rituals of different cultures and dates back to the time of the Inca Empire. The Tongue-Maskoy (indigenous people of Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina) have the belief that a fire made with Palo santo wood prevents evil spirits from entering the home. It is inspiring to think of the first people who discovered its long lasting torch property and beautiful scent and it is easy to understand how it evolved into a valued and sacred gift.
