Each smudge bundle is hand crafted from a base of African sage, lavender and rosemary and wrapped with cinnamon, rose petals, dried orange slices and seasonal flowers. Lavender brings tranquility, rosemary adds to the cleansing properties, cinnamon attracts abundance, orange slices release emotions and the rose petals are for love. It's a PERFECT TIME TO SMUDGE and sanitize the air. The smoke kills most airborne pathogens for up to 48 hours.
What Is Smudging?
Smudging a way to energetically cleanse a space to invite positive energy. When smudging a space, you burn plant material. The smoke fills and purifies the environment.
The most-used types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay.
It turns out that sage may help clear the air of lots more than bugs and bacteria.
Though scientifically unproven, burning sage is thought to release negative ions. This is said to help neutralize positive ions.
Common positive ions are allergens like:
- pet dander
If this is the case, burning sage may be a blessing for those with asthma, allergies, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions. But inhaling the smoke during the smudging can aggravate any respiratory condition. Wait until the smoke clears before going into the room.
Smudging has long been used to connect to the spiritual realm or enhance intuition.
For healers and laypeople in traditional cultures, burning sage is used to achieve a healing state — or to solve or reflect upon spiritual dilemmas.
