A smudge stick is simply a tied bundle of dried herbs and is used in the same way as incense, where you light the end and allow it to smoulder before blowing out any flames - then allow the smoke to rise and infuse the air.  The practice of burning smudging is fairly simple.  You will need a seashell or bowl of ceramic, clay dishes, or glass to hold burning sage or capture ash, another option is for you to use feathers or a fan for fanning the smoke.

Smudging is an age-old custom which has become increasingly popular in our modern world.  It 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.

White sage for example is used to get rid of negative influences, by burning the plant. During this process a sharp spicy aroma is released. It’s stronger than its counterpart Palo Santo, although sage is used more often. The original Latin name of this power plant is Salvia Apiana and it grows 100% naturally.

Ruda (Rue) is known as the 'Queen of Herbs' and was believed by the ancient romans to protect against the 'evil eye'. Rue is used for protection and strengthening the aura. Rue is associated with the Goddess Hecate and Diana in paganism.
