It is a soothing and invigorating scent. As soon as you burn sage, you are soon convinced of the cleansing feature of this herb.

Cinnamon is known worldwide. Both in the kitchen (stew, cakes, tea) and in products like essential oils, incense and scented candles. The scent is soft, friendly and sweet. This is also the effect that the scent has on your mind. Together with white sage, it soothes negative thoughts and creates a pleasant scent in your home.

Smudge sticks can be used for cleansing of the aura, for example before meditation or prayer, or they are quite often used by body workers and therapists before treatments.  Smudging has long been used to connect to the spiritual realm or enhance intuition. Burning sage or smudge can lift one’s mood it could also be a great ally against stress.

The practice of burning smudging is fairly simple - you can use any of the following:

A seashell

Ceramic bowl or terracotta dishes

Glass bowl

to hold burning sage or capture the ash, (optional you can use feather or fan for fanning smoke).

How do you use a smudge stick?

The nice thing about smudging is that you burn pure, dried herbs. So there are no additions. The only thing you need is a smudging bowl (which can be found in this shop) or shell. You can even use your  singing bowls if they are brass for example!  You put a few twigs in the bowl. Light them with a match or lighter, and wait until the twigs burn. Then you blow out the flame.

With a feather you can ensure that the scent of the herbs spreads extra well. This way you can perform the smudging ritual. If you really want to clean your living space properly, it is best to open one or more windows. So that negativity and unwanted odors can leave your home. You also ventilate your house, which always remains important.
