If you long for an aromatic environment but balk at the inconvenience and artificiality of so many candles and diffusers, we offer a new alternative. Cast porcelain branches, made in Limoges, France, by a centuries-old company, can be anointed with a few drops of essential oil that slowly diffuse into the air. This set, complete with a solid wood base handcrafted by a Texan woodworker, comes with steam-distilled essential oil of palo santo, made from a wild wood widely used in ritual purifications, but you can substitute any essential oil of your choosing. The branches can also be used, sans oil or base, as a decorative accent. The wood base is available in three colorways in separate listings. The unvarnished Natural Ash will acquire a lovely patina or can be sealed with household oil or butcher’s wax to coax out its rich tones. Designed by Wms&Co., this set contains three cast porcelain branches, solid wood base, and 5 ml palo santo essential oil and is beautifully packaged in our signature black box. Also available in Ebony as a separate listing. Directions: Arrange the branches horizontally on the wooden base. Place several drops of the oil on the branches; the amount depends on the strength of the oil and the desired intensity of fragrance. Layer essential oils onto the branches for an evolving fragrance landscape. Branches: approx. 8" - 9"L Base: 6.5" x 2" x 2" Palo Santo Oil: 5ml Outer Carton: 11.25" x 5.25" x 2"
