The Sage and Chakra Rose Smudge Bundles for smoke cleansing* are carefully hand tied with the freshest herbs. Smoke cleansing is practiced by cultures all around the world and most notably here in America by Native Americans for spiritual rituals**
Sage may be used to cleanse yourself, others, objects, a room, building, crystal, or even a piece of land
- The Rose Petals are aligned with the seven chakras to add the blessings of love, happiness, and new beginnings ensuring that positive intentions fill the energy void left behind during your clearing which is an important step in the process.
Directions: Light the end of a bundle so it catches fire. Extinguish the fire and let it billow from the stick slowly. Walk around your space allowing smoke to enter each area (even cupboards!). Use a ceramic or glass bowl to catch any ashes and as always use caution when working with flames.
While smudging I recommend opening windows to invite positive energy in and let negative energy out!
*Please make sure that a smudge stick is COMPLETELY out before leaving the area unattended.
Each bundle approximately 4" long.
**Read more about Smudging on Wikipedia: The smudging ceremony, by various names, has been appropriated by others outside of the Indigenous communities as part of New Age or commercial practices. Some of the terminology in use among non-Indigenous people, such as the American English term "smudge stick" is usually found in use among those who imitate what they believe are Native American sacred ceremonies. However, the herbs used in commercial "smudge sticks" or "sage bundles," and the rituals performed with them by non-Natives, are rarely the actual materials or ceremonies used by traditional Native Americans. Use of these objects have also been adopted in some forms into a number of modern belief systems, including many forms of New Age and eclectic Neopagan spirituality. This has been protested against by Native activists as a form of cultural misappropriation, and care is needed to distinguish smudging from other practices involving smoke.
