Product Description

White Sage & Yerba Santa Large Smudge Wand

7+ 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 & Juniper Large Smudge Wands are made of California White Sage and Juniper leaf tips, and are around 8-9 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.

Yerba santa is a sticky-leafed evergreen that is native to the American Southwest. It was given its name ("holy weed") by Spanish priests impressed with its medicinal properties. The aromatic leaves were boiled to make a tea to treat coughs, colds, asthma, pleurisy, tuberculosis, and pneumonia, and a poultice of the leaves was applied to painful joints. Unlike many medicinal herbs, yerba santa actually has a pleasant taste. It has been used as a general food flavoring and in cough syrups to disguise the bad taste of other ingredients.  The aroma of Yerba Santa is like mint-sage, without the bitterness, with a background of hemp.
