This thick and solid smudge stick is 8”-9.5” long. High Desert Sage has a light and woody aroma that is less bitter than the traditional white sage. While it is sought after for its many medicinal purposes, it is used a smudging herb to clear negative energy, drive out evil spirits and induce sweating, among other purposes.
Aroma: Light and woody.
Intention: To cleanse one’s space or body, drive out evil spirits or induce sweating in a sweatlodge. Smudging is a spiritual purification process that can be thought of as a cleansing smoke bath that involves lighting the stick, gently blowing out the flame and placing it safely in a fireproof bowl, allowing the smoke to fill your space and wash over your body.
How to use: Light the tip of the bundle until there’s a small flame. Gently blow it out until only smoke is produced. Place it in a fireproof bowl in a safe place away from flammable objects, children and pets. Smudging is done by safely carrying the smoking bundle (still in the bowl) throughout your space so the smoke reaches every corner.
