Have you ever used Palo Santo sticks? Our friends Kendra and Seth first discovered them in South America and now burn them in their home as an evening ritual. You light the tip with a match to start a very slow burn, and gently wave it around until it burns out. It smells like a bonfire, with hints of cedar and citrus. We’re totally hooked now, and it makes your home smell woodsy and incredible.

Any other home scents you love?
