Yerba Santa smudge stick approx. 8" (18cm) in length.
Yerba Santa (Eriodictyon Californicus) grows in the high mountains of the South Western States.
The Native Americans believed that Yerba Santa, when used in smudging, would clear away spirits and powerful emotions and help with depression. It could also open a spiritual doorway.
Yerba Santa can be used to help in the aid of healing from respiratory conditions like coughs, colds and asthma.
You can 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.
Or if you just love the fragrance burn to freshen your home. Please remember to always use a shell or fire proof container. Never leave unattended.
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.
