This set contains 3 sticks of Palo Santo Incense Wood & a Palo Santo Pink Grapefruit Mini 4 oz Candle.
We created Fontana Candle Co. out of a desire to fill our home with truly non toxic and beautiful candles. This mission is what drives us every day, but has since evolved to include non toxic home scenting options besides candles too. Palo Santo is one of our favorite home scenting options for its natural beauty and sweet & woodsy aroma.
Palo Santo, or "holy wood," has been valued for its therapeutic properties for centuries. Our Palo Santo is sustainably harvested from fallen trees, from the same family as myrrh and frankincense, in Peru.
It is believed that when the Palo Santo wood is lit it eliminates stagnant or negative energies and purifies the space, bringing uplifting positive energies. The soothing aroma of the smoke is often used to give your house a sweet smelling aroma and feel. It reminds us of a lighter version of our Peppermint candle, mixed with cedarwood.
Hold a stick of Palo Santo at a 45-degree angle over an open flame until the wood catches fire. Allow it to burn for about a minute until the flame goes out naturally. Place the Palo Santo in a small fire-safe bowl (or walk with the wood throughout your home or office) and let the fragrant, cleansing smoke linger in your space.
The Palo Santo burns itself out naturally in a short period of time. If you wish for it to smolder and continue to burn, you will have to purchase a charcoal set, which we do not currently offer.
The Palo Santo Candle has a STRONG scent throw and burns for up to 20 hours. There will be 1/2" of wax left over at the bottom when the wick burns out completely. Use the remaining wax as a rejuvenating lotion or pour it into a wax warmer to continue to enjoy.
Protect your order from heat: Because we do not use any stabilizers or preservatives in our candles, they do not do well in excess heat. We take as many precautions as possible to ensure that your order arrives in tip-top shape in the warmest of weather, and ship with ice packs to areas experiencing hot weather. Please note the ice packs only protect the candles for approximately 24-48 hours. If you are experiencing warm weather where you live, please keep an eye on your tracking number. We highly recommend being home for delivery, or taking your package into a climate controlled area as soon as possible after delivery.
