These sweet smelling palo santo incense cones are made from genuine crushed palo santo wood. For centuries indigenous people from the Andes have used palo santo, also known as holy wood, as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing; to get rid of evil spirits and misfortune; as well as for medicinal purposes. The pleasant, fresh smoke is a natural flying insect repellent, too. These cones have approximately a ten minute burn time. What a fantastic way to incorporate the sweet scent and powerful properties of this holy wood into your meditation or ritual. Includes 12 cones and a wooden cone burner.
