California White Sage Smudge Stick
California white sage. Salvia Apiana on grows near the Pacific coast of Southern California and is gathered ethically by indiginous peple and shipped directly to us in the U.K. California white sage is extremely good for clearing negative energies and entities from your home, items and person as it totally neutralises the space.
Yerba Santa Smudge Stick
Yerba Santa (Eriodictyon californicum) grows in the dry mountainous areas of California and Northern Mexico, is harvested sustainably by the Native Americans and is traded fairly by us. Smudge sticks made from Yerba Santa have been used for generations by Native Americans for cleaning ceremonies. Smoking with Santa Herb or Sacred Herb is said to have a strengthening effect on self-confidence. The Californian Indians also used the leaves for pain and colds, for smoking ceremonies and in sweat lodges. The smoke has a spicy, warm scent - a wonderful ceremonial magic wand that can burn for spiritual healing, cleansing and love.
2 x Palo Santo Sticks
Palo Santo literally means holy wood and is, just as white sage, originate from the native Indians in South America. Centuries ago they already used it during ceremonies to clear the aura and to heal from negative influences. In Europe too, people choose to buy the holy wood to clean their houses or just for the fragrances in its purest form. The fragrance can be described as a warm, wooden and lightly aroma with a sweet touch that sometimes slip trough. In comparison with white sage (that is also used for the same purpose), Palo Santo gives off a very mild odor. Palo Santo is great for clearing the negative and bringing in the positive so a fabulous form of smudging to maintain a fairly balanced environment at home or in a holistic centre.
