What can I do with the leftovers of the Palo Santo Sticks?

4357 Views 4 Liked

If you are a lover of the sacred aroma of Palo Santo, I'd bet you have always wondered what to do with the small pieces of wood that remain after burning almost the entire stick.

When I have spent almost all of my Palo Santo sticks, I am left with small residues that are very hard to light. I must confess I have often burnt my fingers trying to light them as they are too small, for this reason, I store those palo santo bits in a bowl left abandoned in a corner of my house gathering dust. (This is a terrible idea for a piece of wood that must live 30 years prior to using it!)

One day while I was cleaning my house I was going to throw away those bits of Palo Santo. I was very sad, so I decided to find a way to give them a use. I'm not going to lie to you, I failed trying to light it, because they didn't combust that easily. So, overwhelmed by not knowing what to do, it occurred to me to add a little of the Palo Santo powder. The result was positive, the pieces burned slowly, releasing a powerful woody citrus aroma that I love so much about Palo Santo.

And the most important, NOTHING is wasted of this sacred wood that soothes your soul!

So I want to share with you how I did it.

Very easy...

We need the following:

The first thing is to gather all the pieces inside the incense burner, then add a small handful of palo santo powder, enough to create a little fire to facilitate the combustion of the palo santo sticks. As a final step, light it with a match or lighter, especially starting by burning the powder in one spot. (TIP: I prefer to use a candle to light the palo santo to avoid burning my fingers again lol :)  )

This is how you will give full use to the remaining pieces of sticks, and you will have the sweet aroma of palo santo in your home for longer. You will use even the last residue of your palo santo sticks. Try it and tell me how you did with this little advice. If you have any recommendations I would love to read you.
