Cinnamon Infused Smudgestick
Native Americans and other indigenous peoples have burned sage for centuries as part of a spiritual ritual to cleanse a person or space, and to promote healing and wisdom. Sage has antimicrobial properties, meaning they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay. More studies have shown that burning sage may help clear the air of lots more than bugs and bacteria, burning sage is thought to release negative ions. This is said to help neutralize positive ions. This process helps to cleanse a person or a space, to reharmonize the energy flow of it.
According to old Sicilian’s legend in the bush of Rosemary are hidden fairies in the form of a snake who are ready to help the one who is in trouble. Rosemary moves away evil spirits and protects.
In the Middle Ages it was believed that Rosemary will protect against evil, spells and brings happiness in love so it was used in wedding ceremonies in the hair of the bride, or in her bridal bouquet. Gifted Rosemary had a symbolic meaning of loyalty. Today the Rosemary branch is mandatory part which decorates a wedding procession in many cultures as a symbol of Love, loyalty and protection.
In ancient times Rosemary was burned in honor to the goddesses as a symbol of immortality. Its usually used in rituals for removing love difficulties. When igniting, Rosemary releases pure vibrations, so it should burn slowly to free some place from negative energy, which is very important for magic. If you put it under the pillow, it will ensure you healthy sleep and remove the nightmares. When put under the bed it protects against curses. If you want to get an answer to a question, on a piece of coal burn the Rosemary and inhale the smoke. This is the only plant that can replace any plant you miss when performing ritual.
Comes from latin word lavare – cleaning, so it was main ingredient in all ancient roman baths as well as in many sacred cleansing rituals. It was always herb of love, calmness and magic. As herb name says lavender smudge will cleanse the space at the same time leaving the calmness and pleasant trace of her beauty.
It will help dealing with anxiety and stressful day. It is my favorite herb to burn since it leaves the most pleasant smell so I recommend it to any beginner in using smudging.
There is no special needs for explaining meaning and symbolism of the rose. Her beauty is well known as much as her smell. Cleopatra was bathing in her petals, ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians were recognizing and glorifying her beauty. Her smell will open your soul for love, it symbolizes hearth chakra, emotions and passion.
Please keep in mind that slight discoloration is possible in process of drying since the artist don’t use any chemicals to preserve them, just nature.
For making a bundle, she is using 100% natural hemp string or 100% cotton sting with nothing added on so it will leave only natural smell with no artificial traces in the air while burned.
