Product Description

White, Cedar & Blue Sage Mini Smudge Wand Sampler

4+ inches long

Unit size: 3 smudge wands

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".

This White, Cedar & Blue Sage Mini Smudge Wand Sampler contains 3 different smudge wands, each around 4-5 inches long.

White sage has long been revered for its medicinal uses, and it is viewed as possessing many virtues believed to aid in maintaining general well being. It is perhaps better known though for the spiritual practices that revolve around it, particularly the spiritual art of smudging. In this practice, white sage is usually the preferred herb used to bundle up into a long stick or wand. One end is then lit to smolder slowly, as the smudging stick is then used in ceremonial offering, or in rituals of cleansing, purification, and protection. This tradition, born of Native American beliefs, is said to keep away evil spirits and negative energies, and has been adapted to the practices of many neopagan traditions. Within these practices, the uses often extend to seeking prosperity, fertility and longevity, and are sometimes used in rituals of money drawing, banishing, or consecration.  These White Sage leaf clusters are great for cleansing your circle of earth-bound influences and spirits in neo-pagan rituals. You can easily make your own smudge sticks with this sage. Simply bundle some sage together with your hands, and then tie some string around it to hold it in place.

Traditionally White Sage has been said to aid in decreasing sweating and salivation. It is also said to aid in ailments of the nose and throat and lungs by decreasing the mucus secretions of the sinuses. It is sometimes also used in a cold tea as a tonic for stomach ailments, or in look warm tea for soothing away the pain of a sore throat. The leaves of white sage have also been said to be of great use for treating heavy menstruation, though it should be noted that this can sometimes decrease lactation.
The wood and tips from cedar trees have been famous for their flavoring and preservative properties for ages. Indeed, cedar wood has been utilized in the making of cabinets, garden and pet bedding, closet linings, potpourris, sachets and other such products for thousands of years. Historical documents have show that it was even famously utilized in King Solomon`s Temple in Jerusalem and mentioned in The Iliad, when referring to King Priam`s treasure chambers. Cedar wood and tips have also been an important ingredient in incense used for purification, meditation, and a generally increased potency in magic. Today, we find that the uses for cedar has little changed. Cedar tips in particular are quite commonly used in adding a smoked flavor when used to season fish and meats. They are also often burned in fires, with the smoke used for meditational and spiritual purposes much akin to those that it was used for in ages past. The name Thuja is a latinized version of a Greek word meaning 'to fumigate', and Cedar wood was often used by the Ancients when sacrificing. The fresh tips of the Western Red Cedar are often used to make besoms.  The aroma of cedar leaf tips is of a soft, fresh green pine forest with a little musk.


Beautiful Blue Sage is also known as Grandmother Sage and has long been used by Native Americans in their ceremonies.
