Palo Santo Bundle
Our Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens), which translates as 'holy wood', is wild harvested, sourced sustainably from naturally downed trees and fallen branches. We only process wood that has been found to have fallen naturally in the forest. Available in bundles of 5 sticks that are perfect for use with smudging and incense.
Palo Santo has similar scent properties to woody fragrances such as Eucalyptus, and Cedarwood, and as a tree belongs to the citrus family with ties to frankincense and myrrh. Palo Santo has been lit by Shamans during ceremonies and rituals for centuries. We particularly like to use Palo Santo here in A House Like This during meditation to alleviate feelings of stress and cleanse our space of negative energy and improve our spiritual wellbeing.
How to use
- Light a palo santo stick with a candle, lighter, or match.
- Hold the stick downward at a 45-degree angle.
- Let the stick burn for 30 seconds.
- Blow out the flame.
- Place the stick in a heatproof dish or purpose-made Palo Santo burner to let it burn
Note: It's normal for Palo Santo to smoke in a similar way to incense sticks. You may wish to only use it in small doses as you do not need to burn a lot of the wood to release a long-lasting, creamy and woody scent. As with all natural products, these will naturally vary in colour, shape and potency.

On the first burn always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool. Trim the wick to 5mm between every use. Never leave your A House Like This candle unattended when burning. Burn out of reach of children and pets. Always leave at least 10cm between burning candles. Glass may become hot during use. Never burn this candles for more than 4 hours at a time. Visit our candle care page for more details.
Wax Melt Care
1. Break off a wax melt cube from the packaging by applying a little pressure to the coating that surrounds the soy wax cube.
2. Place your wax melt cube onto an appropriate melt burner dish
3. Add a tealight candle under the melting dish of your wax melt warmer and light
4. After a few minutes, the cube will melt and release the scent.
5. Add another cube to intensify scent after first use or scoop out the cooled wax carefully with a spoon to try another scent.
Scent Solutions & Essential Oils
Just add a few drops to pure water in your aroma diffuser. Take care not to spill the fragrance or essential oil on unprotected surfaces. Wipe up with an absorbent cloth right away and avoid contact with skin undiluted.
Unplug your diffuser and empty any residual water and oil. Clean your aroma diffuser in between use with an absorbent cloth and pure water.
Everything I have purchased has always been so lovely. The packing alone is an absolute joy to unwrap! The fragrances are divine. Very high end products, with friendly, helpful owners. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
I've followed AHLT for over a year and finally made the leap after getting a candle as a gift. Glad I did! The candles smell incredible and last a long time. The order said it would arrive in 5 business days and got there in 2. Definitely an all around great experience!
Great quality product with speedy delivery. The Persephone is my favourite scent and difficult to get elsewhere. Really great value for money. Thank you!
Beautiful scent, classic design, and friendly makers!
Without a doubt, the best essential oils I've ever bought. The scent fills the whole house and lasts for some time. Great value for money, great product & great attention to the little details (like packaging) make a purchase from AHLT very special indeed.
Fantastic, high quality products at fair prices. Love, love, love the Fygge wax melt bar - smells divine! Will be buying the candles very soon. :-)

Brilliant products at a competitive price. We ordered from the aromatherapy collection and this was a perfect addition to our home.Great service and feel valued as a customer. Great small business to support, highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing scents in all their products they are very natural and fill a room without overpowering it. The quality is superb and the customer service, packaging and delivery is always excellent. I highly recommend AHLT
AHLT "Hallows" is the most amazing fragance I have ever tried in my diffuser. It is subtle yet haunting, and it lingers for hours afterwards. I am truly in love with this scent and I can´t wait to try more!
Absolutely love the long lasting fragrance of the AHLT candles. Have tried many brands over recent years & this one is unbeatable. We love Atlantis Pyrige & Garland at Xmas time. Also love the wax melts. Placing another order soon 😊
