Cedar Smudge Stick
Cedar is a medicine of protection. Cedar trees are very old, wise, and powerful spirits. Known as the Mother and giver of life, Cedar promotes harmony and clarity and is often used to cleanse any home, sacred space, person or object of unwanted energy. The word "Cedar" means the power of spiritual strength as it was one of the first aromatics used by the Native Americans to heighten spiritual experience. A wonderful fragrance to burn. You will receive 1 Siskiyou Cedar bundle (5") and 1 small naturally shed duck feather.
The art of smudging has long been an ancient tradition with the Native Americans and other indigenous cultures. Used to cleanse, protect, or heal, the herbs in the smudge have beneficial properties. The smoke from these herbs is used to clear any unwanted energy before or during a ceremony, within a home, or surrounding an object or person. Smudging is also used to cleanse and clear your crystals and stones. The smoke is used to cleanse, facilitate prayers, encourage healing, and bestow blessings and honor. The pleasing aromas from these herbs invokes a feeling of well-being, peace and comfort. These smudge sticks bring forth a presence or mindfulness and intention. Practice your own smudging ritual by creating a space of healing and cleansing.
It is best to always open a window during smudging to provide an exit for the negative energy and ventilation to pass through. Please use caution and safe smudging practices. Do not leave burning cedar unattended. Keep out of reach from children, pets, and flammable material.
We source our cedar sticks from a sustainable family farm where only leaves are picked, there is no de-rooting, so the tree may continue to grow.
