Smudge Stick Crafting

I love this time of year. Our herbs are bursting with life, energy and aroma. We have a new addition to our herb garden this year – a beautiful purple Sage. Tonight, I have been crafting up some fresh smudge sticks ready to dry out for orders. They include fresh and dried Lavender that is scenting the whole house. Bay leaves, the divine purple Sage and wild Rose petals dried from last year. These Smudge Sticks are intended to offer peace of mind and clarity. You can find out more about purchasing them here.

*As of 20/08/20 we have changed the name of our sticks to ‘Smoulder sticks.’ You can read more about our decision regarding this here.

What are Smudge Sticks?

Smudge sticks are bundles of herbs that are bound together and dried out for the purpose of burning. The bundle may consist of a single herb type or a combination of different herbs tied together. Different herbs vary in their energetic and healing properties, as well as their scent.

Herbs have been burned by many cultures for generations. The purpose of which includes for ceremonial and ritual purposes, for cleansing and purification, for spiritual blessings or protection and banishing negative energy.

Our smudge sticks are a blend of herbs that we have grown organically. We harvest them within the waning moon cycle after they have been bathed with the light of the full moon. At this time the water content in the plant falls, making them easier to dry.

We have selected herbs that will offer tranquillity and protection, soothing the mind and body. They are known for their mood boosting and calming properties. This makes them well suited to burn before or during meditation practices, to help soothe if the emotions or nerves are fraught or to induce a peaceful nights sleep.

Like all of our offerings we create and concoct in small batches when plants are at their most potent. We have a new batch currently available in our Etsy shop now.
