Desert Magic Smudge
Desert Magic is an aromatic sagebrush that thrives in the windswept deserts of the Santa Fe/Taos area. Ours is gathered in the wild, carefully dried, and bundled.
Desert Sage has a warm herbaceous aroma that is a bit peppery (think Bay leaves or Mint tea). It is used for cleansing and purifying, protection, and inner strength. It is said to bring pleasant thoughts and relieve headaches and anxiety.
Mini smudges measure about 4 inches in length. Thread color may vary. The smudge stick comes packaged in a re-sealable bag with a header card.

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.
