How to Burn Palo Santo

Hold Palo Santo over an open flame, tilting the end down at a 45 degree angle and slowly rotating the stick so that all sides are exposed to the flame. Once lit, let the wood burn visibly for 20-30 seconds, relighting as necessary. Blow out the Palo Santo stick and allow to smolder. 

Because of  Palo Santo's particular resinous quality, the embers will self extinguish after a few minutes. This means the wooden incense can be relit and enjoyed many times! 

Always follow good fire safety practices. 


Instructions for Palo Santo Cones

Hold the tip (smallest end) of the Palo Santo Cone horizontal over a flame. After it is lit, gently blow it out. Place the base of the cone onto an incense burner. No need to extinguish, the cone will burn itself out after about 20-25 minutes.

If you're using our Pyramid Palo Santo Cone Burner we recommend putting the Palo Santo in the Pyramid first, then lighting it after it's in the burner. 

Always follow good fire safety practices.
