Palo Santo Incense

Lighting candles to freshen up my room and settle into a relaxing mood is a daily ritual I seriously enjoy.  But the habit gets pricey fast and can be toxic if you are burning paraffin candles (this is the same stuff in diesel fuel, eek!).  My big-spankin' new idea?  Test out some incense.

I grew up with incense burning in the house so the rich, warm, and earthy scents are very nostalgic for me.  The problem?  I'm not always in the mood for a such a heavy fragrance, especially in the morning as I get down to work.  My fix?  Palo santo incense.

Originally from the Palo Santo trees in Ecuador and Peru, these wood sticks were traditionally used in ceremonies and rituals.  The smoke has a light aroma with a touch of mint, pine, and soft citrus and even wards off mosquitos.  My biggest pro?  The scent lingers through out the day without feeling too overpowering or harsh.  Plus, these wood sticks are ethically harvested and cured for over ten years before landing in my lap.  Ancient traditions revived?  I think yes.
