INSTRUCTIONS

To make your own modern palo santo yule log bundles, cut small stems of the juniper down to the size of the palo santo sticks (3-4 small stems is all you need per stick). Do the same with the additional dried items and wrap with the palo santo along with a cinnamon stick and tie with your ribbon. Cut off the excess and you’re good to go!

Enjoy the benefits and the smell – burn each item by angling at a 45 degree angle – let flame burn for at least 15 seconds, then blow out. Place on a safe, heat proof surface, or hold it while walking around your space.
