Palo Santo (or holy stick) is an oily aromatic wood whose scent is marvellous and unique. Describing this scent is difficult, but it may bring to mind aniseed, cinnamon or rose.
The effect of Palo Santo is to create a purified and pacified mood, but moreover, to bring a paradisiac or heavenly sense to the atmosphere. It is also forest-friendly, pet-friendly, a natural insect repellant and a play stimulant for cats.
The Palo Santo sticks are used in this way : light the stick, and allow the wood to burn less than a minute, then blow the flame out. The stick will then glow for few moments, and produce its caracteristic scented smoke. In this way, the stick can be used several times.
It is by far the best incense we have come to know.
