What are smudging herbs?
The ritual that we call "smudging" comes from the Indians. Smudging means that through the use of certain herbs, they make contact with the spiritual world. The best-known herb used for this is white sage.
By contacting the spirit world, the Indians cleanse themselves and their environment from bad energies. The strong smell of sage also ensures that unwanted odors disappear. In addition, the herb is suitable for meditation. White sage can be burned both as incense and in pure, dried form. This product consists of dried white sage and sweet grass.
The power of white sage and sweetgrass
White sage is known for its cleansing power. The scent is penetrating and spicy. Some people have to get used to this. Sweetgrass, on the other hand, smells sweet, fresh and friendly. You could associate the scent with toffee or ice cream. You also come across Sweetgrass under the name "holy grass".
The sweet scent of holy grass is a good addition to the pervasive scent of white sage. Both herbs are famous among the Indians because of their cleansing effect. Sweet grass is a broad type of grass that is braided before it is added to smudging herbs.
Smudging with sweetgrass and white sage
The nice thing about smudging is that you use the herbs in a pure and dried form. You can use a smudging bowl or shell to burn them in. Put a few sprigs of holy grass and white sage on top and light them. Wait until they burn, and then blow out the flame.
