Mini Cedar Smudges (Package of 2)
These extra-short Cedar smudges are perfect for indoor cleansing and smaller spaces. They are hand-tied from wildcrafted California Cedar, and measure just over 3 inches in length. Package of two.
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.

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.
