Burners created in collaboration with ceramic artist Kirsten Perry. Each piece is unique and made by hand in Melbourne.
Designed as an object of art as well as a functional Palo Santo and incense burner.
Please note; as each piece is individual the size and shape will vary.
Each ceramic burner comes with two Palo Santo sticks which have been harvested sustainably.
We want to recognise and respect the cultural and spiritual significance of this ritual.
Palo Santo translates to ‘holy wood’ and is a tree native to Central and South America.
According to the local customs, it is used against the "mala energia" (bad energy) ("Palo Santo para limpiar tu casa de la mala energia, Palo Santo para la buena suerte" or "Palo Santo to clean your house of bad energy, Palo Santo for good luck").
The Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a tree from the Ecuadorian dry forests which was used by Chamans to cure many diseases; this is the reason that Spanish settlers called the tree "Santo".
