The high resin content in Palo Santo wood makes it an effective purifier of air.

How to burn incense:

In order to burn incense, you first gently ignite it. For example, to burn an incense stick you would use a lighter or a match to light the tip. Once the incense has been ignited, you then gently extinguish the flame, typically by blowing it out. The incense will then glow and begin to produce scented smoke. The burning time of incense varies by its form.
