White Sage Mini Smudge Bundle
White sage (Salvia Apiana) from the coastal mountains of California. This is a broad leaf sage which is prized for its strong aromatic properties. This sage has the strongest scent of all sages we have. Sage is one of the most sacred herbs among indigenious North American peoples. The clean burning sage is used in the energy cleansing ritual known as smudging (or purification), which in theory means the smoke would attach itself to the negative energy of the area and cleanse it so that it becomes positive energy.
Desert Sage Mini Bundle
This plant grows in the high deserts of the West. Sage is burned in ceremonies to drive out bad spirits or feelings (purification) and is valued for its aromatic properties.
Cedar Mini Smudge Stick
Cedar is often used in the sweat lodge ceremony. A few pinches are thrown on the red-hot rocks, immediately sparking into a yellow glow and releasing their aroma. The smoke of burning cedar is said to attract the good spirits and eliminate negative energies.
