High Desert Sage Smudge Stick with Patchouli
High Desert Sage Smudge Stick with Patchouli is hand-made in the USA crafted with white sage and dusted in patchouli.
Each ingredient is considered a sacred herb used for centuries by Native Americans in the “smudging” ceremonies. “Smudging” is the name given to the burning of these herbs for the purposes of cleansing and sending our prayers. Today, people are “smudging” to receive the benefits known to generations of our Native American brothers and sisters.
“Smudging is the traditional spiritual practice of clearing away negative thoughtforms (the manifestation of mental energy) and other negative vibrations with the smoke of burning herbs, typically dried sage. The sage used for smudging is usually either high desert sage or white wide-leaf sage and is often bound into a bundle called a smudge bundle, like this Blue Sage and Lavender Smudge Stick.
When and Why to Smudge Yourself or Your Space
Because old thoughtforms and other negative vibes tend to accumulate no matter how clear you try to keep yourself or a space, it is a good idea to smudge every so often to continue to attract positive vibrations into your life. Smudge any time you feel that negative thoughtforms, including your own, have gotten stuck in your energy field.
You know you need to smudge or clear your space when chaos is present, arguments abound, anger presents itself, or general feelings of agitation and frustration exist. If an argument just occurred, clear your space. If you encountered an unpleasant situation, clear yourself. If your children are unruly and your spouse is cranky, clear your space.
About Patchouli from The Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing
Spiritual uses: Patchouli assists you in raising your consciousness to be more aware and present in the moment. Use it in spiritual practices to evoke sudden flashes of enlightenment or awakening of consciousness. It helps you to tap into the spiritual wisdom of the keepers, or devic forces, of the plant kingdom. Use it in shamanic practices to open a portal through which you can access the world of fairies, gnomes, and elves. Add a drop of patchouli to an aroma-energetic mist for mindful motion in your yoga practice.
Mental uses: The earthy scent of patchouli is grounding. It brings focus and promotes action, thereby releasing laziness. Patchouli’s aroma increases your awareness of issues or challenges, allowing you to perceive them from a higher perspective and thereby increases your objectivity and ability to see the bigger picture.
Emotional uses: Patchouli is uplifting and can assist you in shifting from a state of sadness to one of joy. Use it in synergistic blends with other uplifting oils, such as bergamot, lemon, and rosewood to raise self-confidence and self-worth. Patchouli can also help you to feel emotionally safe as it strengthens your sense of self.”
