Product Description

SMUDGE STICKS

Celebrate the Sacred. Our Smudge Sticks are generous bundles of freshly gathered CERTIFIED ORGANIC herbs, wrapped tightly with cotton string and hung until dry, then re-wrapped for presentation.

Smudge sticks are traditionally burned to honor the sacredness of an occasion, to clear or protect a space, raise the energy, or prepare for prayer or healing. Our white sage comes to you loose in a zip lock bag.

MUGWORT - Carries and reflects moon energy, burned to protect, enhance dreams and psychic abilities, patron herb of women. Burned almost exclusively by Buddhists in their sacred ceremony.

LAVENDER - Attracts high, clear, tranquil energy. Calming and centering. Makes everything seem bright and new.

HYSSOP- The essence of protection and cleansing. King Solomon used hyssop in his temple.

ROSEMARY - The Greek and Roman Sybils burned rosemary to enter into trance, speak with the gods, offer prophecy. Burn before sleep to protect against nightmares. Creates a safe and inspiring space for healing and meditation.

WHITE SAGE - Traditionally burned by Native American Tribal people in sacred ceremony. Clears negative energy.

SAGE - Traditionally burned by our European ancestors, the same way white sage is burned and with much the same effect.

HAND ROLLED INCENSE STICKS
MEDITERRANEAN BLEND - I have always loved the stories of the Sybils, especially the Sybil of Cumae whose ancient cave is not very far from my Southern Italian village. The Sybils foretold the future in rhyming verse...the old stories say the Sybil's divination was enhanced by breathing fumes from burning herbs...the bay tree was especially revered by them. The herbs in this blend were gathered in Italy last winter - bay, olive, sage, rose and rosemary - with the intention of creating this Mediterranean incense blend, imspired by and in honor of the Sybils. I've finished them off by pressing each stick through a bed of fresh flowers from my Maine gardens, herbs that I consider sacred - St. John's wort, hyssop and of course, rose.

BOREAL FOREST BLEND - There is something primal about being in a forest...we experience a sense of quietness and peace found nowhere else...a sense of belonging, of being surrounded by life...and a part of the great oneness that includes all other life forms inhabiting the region...conifers intermingle with deciduous trees, and the understory abounds with a multitude of shrubs, flowers, fungi, birds and critters who also call the forest home. The gifts of the forest are many, but this awareness of peaceful coexistence I think is the essence of nourishment for the spirit of all.

Smudging
(an excerpt from Gail's book, Opening Our Wild Hearts to the Healing Herbs)

Burning dried herbs, or smudging, is an ancient method of nourishing the spirit and invoking the sacred. People all around the world burn herbs during ceremonies. I feel instantly reverent when I smell frankincense which was burned in our Catholic Church during my chilhood. Many cultures believe smoke from the burning herbs clears unwanted energies and carries our prayers to Great Spirit. I know people who smudger before important meetings, and others who smudge their house each day. Sometimes I smudge in the morning as a blessing on the new day, in the evening to relieve accumulated stress and tension, or at night to inspire dreaming.

Any very dry herb, flower, bark, resin, or root will burn, but some are more aromatic than others. Some scents are known to have certain effects, but you don't need to be an expert. Just go ahead and burn some herbs in a fire-proof bowl or shell, or light up a smudge stick. See what you like. Experiment. What smells good to you? Burn well-dried springs of your herbal ally.

When I smudge, I let the smoke go over and around my head and I inhale the aroma. I offer some smoke to my heart area, around my back, and down my arms and legs. I pay special attention to parts of my body holding tension or in special need of nourishment or healing. I offer a prayer of thanksgiving each time I smudge. I let the smoke carry my prayers to the heavens. Some of my favorite herbs for smudging are: lavender, mugwort, sage, rosemary, vervain, peppermint, cedar, juniper, St. John's wort, and hyssop.
