Burning cedar will bring joy, light and clarity into your space. Cedar is a medicine of protection. Cedar trees are very old, wise and powerful spirits. Cedar is often used to cleanse a home or apartment when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influences.
Cedar smudge sticks have been used for centuries in rituals and cleansing ceremonies. Cedar is best known for its power to purify places, objects and people and ability to attract good spirits and eliminate negative energy. The practice of burning cedar, or smudging, is an ancient spiritual ritual rooted in Native American culture. For centuries, Indigenous tribes have burned cedar for ceremonial purposes to cleanse, purify, and pray. When burned, cedar has been a means for Native cultures to commune with the spirit of the plant and earth.
The incense sticks are created from copal resin from the Protium Tree which is native to Southern Mexico. Burning Copal is a wonderful way to energetically cleanse a space or person, and a useful tool when calling upon our ancestors. The smell is a light woodsy fragrance with hints of citrus.
Each bundle contains three Copal Resin Incense Sticks- approximately one hour each of burn time, one large 7 in. cedar smudge wand and one stick of selenite.
How To Smudge:
Begin by lighting a candle while reciting an uplifting mantra, then light the tip of your smudge wand using your candle flame. Allow your smudge wand to burn a few seconds, then gently blow to extinguish the flame, being cautious not to scatter burning embers. Be sure to keep your smoldering smudge wand over a fire proof container at all times and never leave the burning wand unattended or near pets and children. Once your smudge wand is smoldering, begin filling your space with the sacred smoke of Mother Earth's Healing Herbs. Move clockwise around your space, starting at your front door. It is best to leave a window or door open while smudging, allowing an escape route for negative energies. To cleanse your self, sit in a comfortable position and allow the smoke to waft over your body as your recite your mantra or prayer.
