Yerba Santa, is traditionally used as a smudge or incense for protection and setting boundaries. It has also been used for love, purification, growth, empowerment and beauty, and the release of emotional pain stored in the heart chakra. Uplifting scent. Burn it to nurture and protect that which is ancient, sacred and wild within you. Use it when you need encouragement or courage.
This smudge stick comes with a prayer/intention to be recited while burning.
Light the bundle from the top end or crush the leaves to be burned separately. A light flame is needed to burn the smudge stick, and the flame should be blown out almost immediately. The smoke that comes from the smudge stick is what's important, not the flame. Walk through your rooms clockwise and fan the smoke into the corners, ceiling, and floor. Feel free to open windows and doors to release excessive negative energy that may exist.
As the smoke lightly fills the space, say a prayer or hold an intention of cleansing and bringing in positive energies.
*Keep put of reach of children, pets, and flammable material.
