Product Description

White Sage & Rosemary Mini Smudge Wand

4+ inches long

Unit size: 1 smudge wand

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".

These White Sage & Rosemary Mini Smudge Wands are made of Rosemary leaf and flower, and are 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 aroma of White Sage is strong, smokey, pungent, and south-western.

The Ancients held that Rosemary strengthened memory, and because of this it was used in love charms so that a lover would not forget their beloved while away.  It was entwined in wreaths for weddings symbolizing love and fidelity.  It has also been used at funerals, holidays, and all times of remembering loved-ones and family. It was often substituted for more expensive ingredients in incense.  Rosemary is a classical example of a plant of one realm (Mercury - memory) being used upon another (Sun - fidelity, oaths).

This hardy herb native to the Mediterranean region has been cultivated and used in culinary and medicinal properties for centuries. Primarily grown for the kitchen, it has also even seen use in helping to prevent erosion in landscaping as well as a topiary plant that can be sculpted easily to please the eye. In cooking, it possesses somewhat of a strong, bitter taste and is used to add to the taste of many traditional dishes, as well as in an ingredient for herbal tea. Of old, it was also famously used for "hungry Water," in the treatment of the Queen of Hungry, and as such was said to revitalize paralyzed limbs as well as treat gout. Rosemary has also had an ancient reputation for improving memory. As such, it is frequently used as a symbol for remembrance in weddings, war commemorations, and in some cases funerals. In the mid ages it was in weddings as a headpiece for the bridge, while the groom and their wedding`s guests would wear rosemary sprigs, each representing charms of love. Newlywed couples were also to plant a branch on their wedding day, and if it grew healthily it was to be a good omen. Another common practice of old was to tap one you desired with a rosemary branch, and if it were to blossom you and your desired partner would fall in love. Others still used rosemary leaves to stuff cloth dolls, and in this manner cure illness or attract a lover. Rosemary gardens were also aid to ward away the curses and evil spells of others during the mid ages. In more modern studies Rosemary has been shown to actually improve memory, though studies also showed recall in these cases to be somewhat slower. Some herbalists also proscribe it to help lower the risk of strokes and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer`s and Lou Gehrig`s Disease.

The aroma of Rosemary when burned as an incense has a burst of lemon, and then a long roll of light invigorating subtle-pine.  It leaves a lingering aroma in the room like a pleasant sage.
