A smudge stick is a bundle of dried herbs, bound together with string. Smudging is a common practice all around the world, which aims to cleanse, heal, to offer blessings and honor to sacred herbs. Yesterday I harvested a lot of lavender, sage, yarrow, roses, echinacea and thyme, so I decided to create floral smudge sticks! These are great to use for your own practice, give as gifts or to just hang where you would like some scent AND are super easy to make! Here are some shots from my afternoon playing in the Earth’s bounty, putting my love and intentions of health, happiness, good fortune and balance in each of these sacred herb smudge sticks. I used Hemp twine to bind the herbs. I look forward to gifting them and making more each year. Have a beautiful day!
