✨ What is Smudging, and why it matters?
Throughout history, people from different cultures have burned sacred herbs and resins to raise spiritual vibrations, dispelling negativity and aiding in spiritual practices.

Unpleasant and unethical scents from nasty incense, herbs and oils are no longer effective in sacred rituals and spiritual practices.

The power of herbal smoke cleanses spaces, facilitates ritual, and even heals physical ailments. It can also be a transcendental medium to alter mood and allow us to engage in shadow and dream work. 

✨ Why do empaths need spiritual protection?
It is absolutely essential for those with empathic and highly sensitive traits to cleanse their aura regularly.

Smoke cleansing is a highly effective method for achieving optimal spiritual self-care. It is also invaluable in the auric field purifying the energy of your surroundings and any tools you may use, such as gemstones and oracle cards.

✨  How does smoke purify?

▷Physical purification. The heat from burning materials releases volatile oils depending on the plant's kind. 
▷Energetically, Each plant material used in smoke cleansing will have a different energetic association. Some are associated with protection, prosperity and other healing properties.
▷Emotionally purifying. Our sense of smell ties in directly to the limbic system (the emotional part of the brain). Our sense of smell is 90% emotion and 10% recall.

✨  How did our Smudge sticks get made?
Plants are harvested under the full moon. Some flowers are always left for pollinators like bees, and after bundling the plants, we air dry them. To bless them before using them to create magic. It takes a season to create our sacred smudge bundles

✨  What is a Smudge Stick?
A smudge stick is created by bundling together dried herbs with healing properties.

Smudge sticks, also known as floral wands or smoke cleansing bouquets, have become increasingly popular due to their use in Native American traditional rituals of smudging with white sacred sage (salvia apiana).

✨ What is the history of smudging?

The smoke cleansing ritual refers to emitting perfumed smoke produced by herbs, resins, barks, leaves, and flowers that are burned and used to uplift the mood. 

Many cultures and religions use smoke cleansing in temples, churches, ceremonies, and holistic health as a cleansing tool. However, people unaware of history may think smoke cleansing is just a Pagan or a green Witch ritual. 

From the times of ancient Greece, the Mapuches tribes in Chile, the Virgins of the Sun of Peru, and the priestesses of the Mexicas temples, shamans, Native Americans and Australian Aborigines burned different plants to cleanse themselves and honour and connect with Pachamama, Gaia and the Great Spirit of Creation. 

Is there any scientific research? 

1./ The Journal of Ethnopharmacology (2007) published a study in which "medicinal smoke reduces airborne bacteria" and found that burning medicinal herbs for an hour in a closed room reduced the number of airborne bacteria by 94%."
2./ In China, there is a long history of using plant-derived smoke for hygiene, insecticidal, religious, warfare, and the combustion of incense during ceremonies and rituals has traditionally been an essential aspect of Buddhist, Confucian, and Daoist spiritual practices.
