Mountain Sage & Frankincense Smudge Stick
Traditionally, smudging herbs are indigenous sage, but sage may also be blended with other herbs, and tied into smudging bundles. When a sage blend is burned, one enjoys the combination of the energetic vibrations from both the sage itself, and the herb it is blended with.
Mountain Sage has a light, airy energy and floral fragrance. Mountain Sage aids in connecting with the dream world and attaining effortless wisdom in everyday life. Mountain Sage is used for cleansing and purifying, protection, and inner strength. It is said to bring pleasant thoughts and relieve headaches and anxiety.
Frankincense: This powerful resin produces a heightened spiritual awareness. A recent study revealed how frankincense works as an effective antidepressant and relieves stress. It’s said to enhance intuition, clairvoyance and is ideal to use before meditation. Burning frankincense provides protection and purification and is said to help increase your spiritual awareness.
Native American indigenous cultures routinely use smudging as a vehicle for spiritual transformation, to raise vibration, and to purify a room, dwelling or space. When sage is burned, the smoke releases negative ions, which allows purification to occur.
Light the sage and blow out the flame. Run your hands through the smoke and allow the smoke to billow around your body. Now you are cleansed, and ready to repeat the process in your room. Use the sage smoke to cleanse and purify your space by waving the smudge stick in a clockwise direction, and spreading the smoke around with a smudge feather.
Store your sage bundle in an abalone shell or clay pot, which should be kept at waist height or higher. Immediately remove the burned ash from the area, placing it outside your dwelling.
