The woodsy and fresh aroma of Cedar is comforting and protective. Cedar is often used to cleanse a home or apartment when first moving in, inviting unwanted energies to leave peacefully. Cedar smudges can make a good alternative for people who prefer not to use Sage.
These premium smudges are gathered from native California incense Cedar, and carefully dried and packaged for your enjoyment. The smudge stick is approximately 4" in length. Thread color may vary. The smudge stick comes individually packaged in a plastic bag.

How to Use Smudge Sticks
Holding the smudge stick by the “handle” end, use a lighter to ignite the tip. Blow out any open flames so that the leaves slowly smolder. Next, wave the smudging wand around a room, person, or objects to direct the fragrant, cleansing smoke. Catch the ashes in a heat-resistant dish. (An abalone shell is traditional, but you can use a smudge pot, incense burner, or even a regular ceramic plate, as long as you put something under it.) Smudge sticks can be extinguished in a dish of sand and re-used many times. Of course, never leave burning smudges unattended.
