Cedar is a popular smudge to use when first moving in to your new home or work space.
When you light and smudge your property, object or person it invites unwanted spirits to leave and promotes protection from unwanted influences.
If our home feels a bit blue and there is friction I tend to light this smudge as the fragrance itself is so uplifting and I do feel a deep connection to nature. You can feel the bad vibes that are creating this negativity leave you and your home.
Light the smudge stick, wait a moment, then blow out the flames. Fan the embers lightly to keep smouldering (may need to be re-lit). Use the smoke to wash persons, property, or spaces.
We try to make sure that we use as little plastic as possible and our smudges, wood and herbs are bought in bulk and packed in air tight containers. When posted they will be wrapped in brown paper and placed in a cardboard outer. Try to keep the product in an airtight container, a glass jar or similar.
