Shaman's Market White Sage and Lavender Smudge Stick
WHAT IT IS: A mini bundle of dried white sage and lavender herbs used to cleanse your home.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Burning sage is an ancient ritual, though to cleanse your home of negative energy. Many cultures practice this ritual burning to literally “clear the air.” The last place we want bad energy right now is at home, and lighting this smudge stick delivers a clean, pure scent and helps to eliminate airborne bacteria. We’re thinking it’s a win-win.
HOW TO USE IT: Light the tip of the stick and then blow it out. You can wave it around in the air or place it in a smudge bowl with a little bit of sand or dirt at the bottom of it. To extinguish, press into the dirt or sand to smother the flame. Always have the windows open when you sage and never leave it unattended while burning.
GOOD TO KNOW: Saging is also known to improve moods, thanks to the negative ions it releases in the air when it’s burned. We also love the way it banishes musty smells.
DETAILS: White sage is collected from the Southern California coast, and has a woodsy, herbaceous scent that reduces anxiety. The lavender works with it to soothe and calm your mood.
MATERIALS: White sage and lavender. Approximately 3 - 4 inches in length.
