Palo santo incense sticks
The incense stcks are packed per 10 in a handmade cardboard box. Each stick has a burning time of around 20 to 30 minutes. The length of the cone is 8 cm and the total length with stick is around 11 cm.
The incense is made by members of a cooperation from a small village in the coastal area of Ecuador. Many family members participate in making this beautiful product. The oldest sister does the sales, the brother makes the boxes, everyone rolls the incense sticks and the neighbour brings them with his car to Mindo, a day ride for them.
Only natural materials are used. The glue is made out of a local plant and the wooden sticks come from a local tree.
Bursera graveolens is a tree that grows abuntantly in the region where we get our Palo santo from.
Supporting local communities is also part of Wakingherbs projects 🙂 Please join us in our quest to get the best natural products.
