Unlike conventional incense which burns completely after lighting, Palo Santo may be relit many times. When lighting, allow the wood to burn to less than a minute, then blow the flame out. The magik of Palo Santo is in the alchemical process that happens after the death of a limb or a tree. In order for the Palo Santo to gain its magikal and medicinal properties it must die, and it must be a natural death of a wise old limb or tree.
Palo Santo trees live for 80 to 90 years. After its death, the tree must remain in its natural habitat for 4 to 10 years to complete its metamorphosis. Only then will its spiritual,, medicinal, and mystical properties come alive.
