Here is a wide assortment of smudges and accessories for your smudging needs. A smudge stick or smudge wand is a bundle of herbs, usually with a base of Sage, bound and tied with a string. As practiced by generations of Native Americans, the pointed end of the smudge stick, while held over a bowl of sand, is ignited. Blowing on the glowing surface will provide the fragrant "smoke" which is used for banishing (cleansing your sacred space), offering up "prayers", or to cast a circle with the smoke. You may also "smudge" people and things, which has the affect of purifying and blessing them. These various spiritual uses, and many others, are known generally as "smudging".
