Smudging is a ritual to cleanse or clear a person, a place or an object of negative energies, spirits or influences. It can also clear a space to allow for positive energy to flow and to create ABUNDANCE! Smudging is a ritual of cleansing and purification for the physical and spiritual bodies to remove negative energy. Smudging is not strictly for use in cleansing and purifying, it can be used to draw in positive energies and as a means of creating smoke to carry our prayers up to the Great Spirit.
These smudge sticks are handmade from home-grown from my yard. Each smudge bundle contains White Sage, Lavender and Rosemary. They smell extremely good!
Each stick is approx. 5- 6 inches tall. Each stick is wrapped with 100% cotton cord.
Since each stick is prepared by hand, each one is unique and no two are alike.
Each stick includes a metal charm.

- To start, you set your intention. You may want to say a prayer or an affirmation – whatever feels right to you. The exact words are not important for it to work. Simply set the intention to clear your house or objects of any lingering negative or stagnant energy.
- Light the sage. Blow out the flame and let it smoke. The smoke is what clears the energy and sets the intention.
- Walk from room to room waving your sage bundle around your whole house. Try to get the smoke into every area of your house. Every corner, every closet, etc. This can be done using a sage fan that is blessed. (These can be purchased on this site.) The feathers help waft the smoke into the nooks and cranies of your space. You’ll also want to do the front and back porches and all around your front door. Open the windows to allow the negative energies to escape!
- Once your “ceremony” is complete, make sure your sage bundle is no longer smoking by gently rubbing it in a glass bowl, shell or other fireproof container.
Don’t worry about doing it wrong. The smoke and your intention/prayer will do the work for you.
