For hundreds of years, Whitesage (Salvia Apiana) has been considered a sacred, purifying plant.
Native Americans started the tradition of burning its dry bundled leaves, during their purification ceremonies and healing sessions, to cleanse a space or a person of all evil spirits or negative energies.
White Sage has a strong herbal fragrance whereas Peppermint has a cool refreshing scent which makes this combination fantastic.
We tend to think of using Peppermint in our cooking but when used as a burning herb it does give a healing effect and like Dragons Blood helps with protection, which makes this particular smudge stick a great herb to burn.
White Sageproducesnegative ions which give you the feeling of a cleansed room. Both White Sage and Peppermint will cleanse and protect your home (it is always best to make sure you have good ventilation when smudging), this allows the bad energy to leave.
Today we have found that people are using these smudge sticks for the same beneficial attributes as well as their quality.
Light your smudge stick and blow gently until you see it begin to smoke. Always remember to have a smudge bowl, plate or shell to hold underneath your lit smudge stick.
Keep away from children and pets.
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.
