Our Santo Wood Sticks are Ethically harvested from natural fallen trees in the forests of Ecuador.
These Palo Santo Wood Sticks are ideal for use for smudging cleansing and meditation sessions. Like sage smudge sticks, you simply waft the smoke over the subject or area with a feather or your hand for cleansing, or can be burned on charcoal discs or simply burned and allowed to smoulder like incense sticks.
Pack contains aprox 35-40g of wood sticks around 10cm long x 1cm thick.
The first recorded use of incense was by the Egyptians during the Fifth Dynasty, 2345-2494 BC. Incense use in religious ritual was possibly also simultaneously developed in China, and eventually transmitted to Korea, Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines and onward threat the globe. The formula and scent of incense used in temples, shrines, Churches, rituals and ceremonies throughout the world vary widely. However, the principle purpose seems to remain as method of purifying the surroundings & enabling us to connect more closely to gods, after life, demons, & many other spiritual connections. Burning incense is an ancient natural art, used in ceremonies for thousands of years. Smells have a huge, if often subconscious effect on the psyche and natural incense smoke is no exception. Incense has been used at some point in almost every spiritual practice, from all the biggest established religions to the hippie movement and many individual and spiritual groups including witchcraft of all forms.
