This high quality, fresh California White Sage Smudge with Lavender was hand bundled, tied, and made with care.
This smudge stick measures 9in. long.
Sage smudge is known for its light woodsy herbaceous aroma, infused with natural qualities suitable for purification of body, mind and spirit. Among the many species of sage, white sage (Salvia apian) is the most famous for its spiritual benefit of cleansing negative energies which accumulate in our surroundings and the astral body.
The White Sage and Cedar is harvested fresh and then bundled up using a cotton thread. After the stick is prepared it is then hanged or put to dry for a couple of weeks. As well as being burned, White Sage is often held, worn or kept with sacred objects to ward off negative influences.
About White Sage
White Sage, also called sacred sage or bee sage, is a desert shrub native to the American Southwest and Mexico. The dried leaves have a sweet, slightly astringent aroma.
Sage is traditionally used in Native American medicine and shamanic practice. White Sage is renowned for its healing, benevolent energy. The scent calms the mind and purifies the body. Sage smoke is believed to have the power carry prayers to the heavens, to remove spirits, and cleanse ritual space. Continue a tradition of healing and blessings with this remarkable plant!
Lavender, long associated with the heart chakra, and the air element, has been called by healers The Mother Plant and Grandmother Plant due to her multi-faceted uses and medicinal qualities. The uses of lavender are known from as far back as 2500 years ago and has been one of the most consistently used plants in history. Lavender has been called blue magic, and is said to be ruled by Mercury, the great communicator. Lavender works to soothe and calm people who have a keen interest in spiritual phenomena and tend to absorb a great deal of spiritual energy that they can't quickly process. It also teaches how to regulate and process the influx of psychic energy.
How to Use Smudge Sticks
Holding the smudge stick by the “handle” end, use a lighter to ignite the tip. Blow out any open flames so that the leaves slowly smolder. Next, wave the smudging wand around a room, person, or objects to direct the fragrant, cleansing smoke. Catch the ashes in a heat-resistant dish. (An abalone shell is traditional, but you can use a smudge pot, incense burner, or even a regular ceramic plate, as long as you put something under it.) Smudge sticks can be extinguished in a dish of sand and re-used many times. Of course, never leave burning smudges unattended.
