Palo Santo Incense Cones
The palo santo incense cones are packed per 10 in a handmade cardboard box. Pure Palo Santo cones that you can burn on a stone or a special tray. Each palo santo incense cone burns around 15 minutes.
If you do not want to repeatedly light your palo santo incense this is the perfect solution. You light once like you light any incense cone and it will burn completely.
The incense is hand 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 neighbor brings them with his car to Mindo, a day ride for them.
Only natural materials are used. The glue is made out of the sticky berry from a local plant and the wooden sticks come from a local trees that surround the community we work with.
Besides making palo santo products this community lives of gathering honey from the palo santo forest. The beeswax that is gathered we use to make very nice palo santo oil infused pure beeswax candles that you can also find in our shop. They are amazing for spreading a light scent while illuminating your meditation and ceremonial space.
Bursera graveolens is a tree that grows abundantly in the region where we get our Palo santo from.
Supporting local communities is an important part of Wakingherbs projects 🙂 We work with local communities directly all over South America and will keep putting all our heart and efforts to keep connecting and cooperating with gatherers and growers directly. This way we can keep our products clean and we can make sure that all involved are treated with respect in every way. Please join us in our quest to get the best natural products.
