Known as atisamânihk in Cree language and nookwez in Ojibwe language, smudging is a cultural ceremony originating from various Indigenous Peoples across North America and elsewhere in the world. Used for practical and medicinal purposes as well as for spiritual ceremonies, this purification by smoke rite consists of burning sacred plants in small quantities in order to cleanse the energy inside and around you.
Depending on the herb you select, you can introduce a specific type of energy into your ritual. For instance, sage is believed to help clear patterns of negative thinking.
Regardless of your chosen medium, it is important to honor the plants by sourcing sustainably and ethically grown herbs. Our White Sage Smudging Sticks are made of 100% natural aromatic botanicals, grown in a sustainable way and assembled by hand in the south of California. Each stick is medium size (between 4.25 and 4.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide).
