Lavender+Rose Smudge Stick
9 inch Love Stick. White sage, rose petals and lavender all bundled together for the perfect smudging session.
Some great times to energetically cleanse your person and your space are:
- Before and after someone enters your home
- When the energy feels stale
- Before meditation, yoga, or ritual
- After sickness or conflict
- During the new moon
- When you begin a new job, start your own business, or are starting on a new project
Lavender is used for many things, including but not limited to cleansing, and increasing clairvoyance. It creates also the energy of happiness and healing, purification, and tranquility.
White sage is for cleansing. Sage is used for releasing what is troubling the mind and removing negative energy.
Rose Flowers and Petals are used for meditation. Traditionally the rose is associated with attracting love, conferring peace, and enhancing beauty. The element is primarily water. The scent is heavy, warm and aromatic with a hint of sharpness that lasts a long time after burning.
How to Smudge...
Open a few windows and doors to help any smoke and negative energy leave easily.
Start with a prayer or intention ( this will be your focus point, while smudging)
Simply light the end on fire over a flameproof bowl or shell. Allow the bundle to burn for a moment and blow out the flame. The herb bundle will then smolder producing the smoke used to cleanse.
Begin the cleanse with you! Carefully smudge yours hands, and then your body. Try to avoid getting smoke in your eyes or breathing too much in.
Walk around your home clockwise, carefully Using your hands or a feather to waft the smoke into all areas of your space. Include all small spaces that collect negative energy like corners, windows and behind doors. It’s also good to open cupboards and wardrobes because they can also hold stagnant energy
Do not for once drop your intention for smudging. Do not be distracted!
Once you feel like you’ve sufficiently cleansed yourself and the place, extinguish fire of the smudge stick by stubbing it against the bottom of the bowl (although it is best to finish the whole stick.)
A sage stick can also be left to smoulder in a flameproof bowl or shell, rather than extinguish - this should only be done if you are able to stay with it while it burns. If not then extinguish it by lightly pressing the stick into earth, sand or into your fireproof dish. Never leave a lit sage stick unattended.
