Deluxe Smudge Kit
Tribal cultures and other religions around the world burn certain herbs to clear unwanted energy in a home, or around an object or person. This is known as “smudging” or “incensing.” As the herbs smoulder, their pleasant aroma surrounds you with a sense of well-being, peace and comfort.
With our Deluxe Smudge Kit, you will have everything you need to carry out your own smudging ceremony in your house, apartment or other space.
Each kit comes with natural cedar, sweetgrass, tobacco and sage, along with a seashell to use during your smudging ceremony.
Sage is used for cleansing any negative or unwanted energy from people, places and items, while cleansing, bringing balance and inviting in fresh, positive energy.
The sage, cedar, tobacco and sweetgrass used in the kit are organic. They are grown and gathered at Wolf River Farm.
HOW TO USE
Hold a flame under the end of the herb until it is well lit. Blow out the flame to leave it smouldering. Use the seashell in the kit to waft the smoke through the air.
To perform a smudging ritual, waft the smoke through the air continuously as you walk the perimeter of a room, around an object or a person. If you are cleansing a room pay special attention to the corners.
The smoke rising represents your prayers. You may choose to speak prayers aloud or quietly. You may also honour the four elements (Earth, Water, Air and Fire), the four directions (North, South, East and West) and the four spirit animals (White Buffalo, Coyote, Eagle and Grizzly Bear).
Once finished, make sure the herb is completely extinguished and wrapped for reuse.
