Palo Santo...from the sacred forests of the Amazon, these fragrant sticks make a wonderful incense and come with an Abalone Shell for burning. The sticks measure 4" long,1/2" wide and weigh 27 grams (0.9 oz.) The sea shell is just over 3" long, 2" wide, 5/8" deep and weighs 15 grams (0.5 oz.) Aptly named, this wonderful, naturally aromatic wood has been used for thousands of years by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. Palo Santo is burned (like sage) for purification, increasing energy flow in the body, meditation and to ward off negativity in any form. Palo Santo is noted for its ability to combat acute rhumatism, pained muscles, as a sedative, and for antiseptic properties. Your package will be mailed in a USPS flat rate priority shipping box to ensure the abalone shell arrives safely.
