The sticks you will find inside the box is from a sacred tree native to South America, called Palo Santo. Several Latin American cultures have used its wood in traditional healing and spiritual ceremonies for centuries. When it burns, the aromatic wood releases lemon, mint, and pine notes—an invigorating, grounding fragrance that is believed to have a number of benefits. Interestingly, these benefits are only found when a palo santo tree dies naturally and is allowed to decompose for five to eight years. That gives the oils in the wood enough time to fully mature before it is harvested and processed into sticks.
“We believe that this mystical tree with its power to purify, attract positive energy and bring calm to the table goes hand in hand with our state of mind at The PUZL”
Use a candle to ignite the stick. Hold it at about a 45-degree angle and point the tip down toward the flame of your candle. Let the stick burn about 30 secs, then blow it out. Smoke will rise from the embers and spread into the air. Place the Palo Santo stick in a heatproof bowl and allow the embers to burn out. This may be relit many times.
