The ritual comes from Incan tradition that says the smoke from the wood, burned during spiritual ceremonies, is medicinal. This Palo Santo Wood Gift Duo is said to cleanse the spirit and mind, releasing the tensions of everyday life. And who doesn’t need that every now and again?
Palo Santo Wood is also high prized for it aroma, and you can even find it in some perfumes and essential oils.
When not being used for its smell, Palo Santo oil has become popular for its anti-inflammatory and stress-relief properties. Just rubbing a few drops into the skin is believed to soothe the mind and ward off headaches and anxiety, too.
It’s highly recommended to spot test the oil on a small patch of skin to check for any allergic reactions!
As you can see in the image above, I created a companion “instruction” card that you can include in your gift package.
The downloadable PDF also contains the matching hang tag to help make your gift stylish and festive.

When you burn Palo Santo Wood, which can be found easily online, you need a burn-proof container. There are lots of different options out there, from extremely simple and inexpensive, to fancier, or more sophisticated choices.
I chose to show off all my Palo Santo Wood Gift Duo designs in a gorgeous Abalone Shell dish that I ordered from Amazon. I know you’ll find something to fit your style and budget, you just need to do a little window shopping!
And now’s when the fun and creative stuff begins! It’s time to decide what color scheme, “vibe” and what occasion you’ll want for your Palo Santo Wood Gift Duo(s).
As you’ll see throughout this post, I’ve shown you various ways to decorate your Palo Santo Wood bundles. I pulled out my crafting supplies and just went to town. I hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration for your own bundles.
It’s not rocket science, it’s just your creativity and personal style kicking into action!
The second half of the Palo Santo Wood Gift “Duo” is a beautifully decorated box of long matchsticks. I actually decorated both sides of the boxes, with the tops becoming “3-D” when embellished with pearls, metallic hearts and layered cut-outs.
I have a sizable collection of scrapbooking sheets that I’ve purchased at various times when cruising the aisles of Michael’s Craft Stores. So when I stumbled upon several sheets of vellum printed with vintage stamps, butterflies and flowers, I stopped dead.
The stiff and partially translucent paper would enable me to cut out duplicate flowers and butterflies to make 3-D creations. Just a little bending and prodding gave me exactly the layered look I wanted to achieve. They came out just lovely, didn’t they?
Sage Smudge Sticks make a perfect addition to my Palo Santo Wood Gift Duo! You’ll actually find them right along side the Palo Santo Sticks, so why not get a few too?
