 About Smudges and Smudging

Smudge Sticks or Bundles are all-natural ceremonial incense traditionally burned in Native American rituals. Today, doctors, therapists, and body workers are discovering the beneficial aspects of these herbs.They are one of the means by which people around the globe are reconnecting with the power of Mother Nature. 

 "Sage makes the bad spirits go away from it when it is burned.  It does not make the good spirits sick.  They will not leave when it is smoked.  Sweet grass is pleasant to all the spirits.  Good spirits like it.  Bad spirits like it.  All like it.  The smoke of sweet grass is pleasant to the good spirits.  They come to the smoke.  They are pleased with one who makes this smoke.  They will listen to what such a one asks.  But the bad spirits come also to enjoy the smoke.  So, sage must be burned to make them sick.  Then, sweet grass to bring good spirits."

The use of smudge sticks for cleansing and purification is a tradition common to many cultures, including both the Native American and Celtic paths. These smudge sticks are available in the following combinations: Sage (from New Mexico); Sage & Cedar; Sage & Copal; Sage & Lavender; Sage & Sweetgrass; California White Sage; and braided Sweetgrass

Our sage is grown in the high desert climate of remote New Mexico, and is harvested by hand with great love and respect for Mother Earth - with offerings of blue corn left as a 'thank you' to the land. Sustainable agricultural methods are practiced, with no more than 25% of the plant removed so that it will continue to thrive.

 

Sweetgrass Braids

Sweetgrass, though hard to find, has been used in Native American ceremonies for generations. Traditionally used for smudging and purifying ceremonies, it has gained additional use in the rituals of many other traditions.

 Pinon Pine Needles 1 oz

pinon pine needles The pinon pine tree of New Mexico. Pinon pine needles were widely used by Native Americans, particularly during ceremonial purposes. When burned on hot coals in sweat lodge sessions, they release a purifying scent. These pine needles have a distinctive clean and sweet smell. The scent can refresh the body, mind and spirit, clear the head and aid the release of a bleak outlook.

 Red Willow Bark 1 oz

Red Willow Bark

An important ingredient in sacred smoking ceremonies. It's calming and soothing, with clearing purposes and during quiet sessions of meditation.

Our red willow (as do most of our ceremonial herbs) comes from a network of Native American wildcrafters from Canada to South America who collect plants in an ecological and respectful way. Wildcrafting is a term which means that the herbs and plants are collected in such a way that the source is sustainable. For example this means not pulling up root systems, harvesting just enough so that the plant will continue to thrive and generally caring for each plant source. Because of the scarcity of some of the traditional Native American herbs and plants we feel this attitude to be absolutely essential as some companies are actually damaging the environment because they are putting profit first.
