Product Information

Smudge Stick Contains: Blue Sage, Sweet Grass, Sage Flowers and Juniper

Smudging is a ceremony used to clear away negative energies and to attract ones that are more positive. Native Americans have traditionally used many herbs for this purpose, each one having a different effect on the aura and inner being. You may burn a smudge stick directly from the end (extinguish carefully afterwards), or break off fragments to burn in a container such as a shell. When smudging, try to feel connected with a power greater than yourself. You may say prayers while using a feather, or simply the palm of your hand, to brush the smoke over you.

Smudge sticks can be used for cleansing of the aura, for example before meditation or prayer, or they quite often these days used by body workers and therapists. They can also be used for cleansing a house or dwelling and are often used in this way in Feng Shui.

They Say:
Blue Sage or Grandmother Sage - Cleansing of Negativity or Exorcism
Sweet Grass - Balance; Harmony
Sage Flowers - Conflicting Emotions
Juniper - Invite Positive; Summon Thunderbird

How do I use my Smudge Stick?
Firstly, light your smudge stick or loose leaves if you have chosen to break off fragments of your smudge stick into a container. Wait a moment, then blow out the flames. Try to fan the embers lightly to keep them smoldering (you may have to re-light your stick). You can then use the smoke to cleanse a person, property or spaces - you can use a shell or a heat resistant container to catch the ashes.

Dictionary Terms Explained

Sweetgrass - Purification, prayer
Sweetgrass (Hierochloe odorata) can be found growing in the Plains of the United States, as well as in some areas of Alberta in Canada. It's a distinctive green grass, being tall in stature with wide blades and a reddish tone at its base.

It's got similar properties to sage, popularly being used as a purifier of places, objects and people to encourage positive energy and dispel old and negative vibes. It was often used in Native American sweat lodge ceremonies, where the sweet scented herb was sprinkled onto the hot rocks to improve the energy inside the lodge and fill the air with a sweet aroma.

Traditionally it was plaited into long braids - ideal for using during cleansing, prayer and smudging - and is still often found sold like that today. Belief has it that when sweetgrass is burned, a prayer is sent to heaven on the smoke. It's properties make it ideal for using in quiet moments of contemplation, as well as when wanting to create an air of purification.

Juniper leaf - Sacred, safety
The juniper bush can be found growing in numerous parts of the Northern Hemisphere. On average, it's four to six feet high and tends to grow in limestone soil.

It's been traditionally used by many cultures to create a safe and sacred environment, and ward off negative influences. Native Americans use juniper leaves during sweat lodge ceremonies, where they were added to the hot rocks to release their delicate scent. The leaves were also used during many ceremonies to rid the area of any negativity and bring forth a positive and healing air.

As an incense, it can be used by anyone wanting to create a peaceful and secure environment for meditation or healing, or merely for its distinctive aroma.
