Still learning about smudging? This book helps!
DIRECTIONS: find a high quality sage stick; open a window; light the end; let it burn for 20 seconds; gently blow out the flame so you can see orange embers on one end; sage can clear up to 94% of airborne bacteria.
Sage & New Mexico Cedar - cleansing a home or apartment when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influence
Sage - purifying, antimicrobial, repels insects, healing, enhances intuition
Sage, Cedar, lavender, white sage, sweetgrass and copal honor (sweetgrass = feminine essence & the earth provides us with everything we need; lavender = invitation of the spirits; copal = tree sap similar to Frankincense with a citrus-like scent, sacred to the native peoples of Mexico, a gift 'pleasing to the gods.')
Sage, Cedar and lavender make sweet smoke for the invitation of good spirits. These carefully bound smudge sticks can be used during times when a divine presence is needed to answer questions, relieve worries or lift us all in prayer.
HEALTH & HAPPINESS:
“Many air fresheners contain nerve-deadening chemicals that coat your nasal passages and temporarily block your sense of smell” (National Geographic).
“Some of the most offensive ingredients—volatile organic compounds (VOCs), benzene and formaldehyde—can cause headaches and nausea and aggravate asthma, and have been linked to neurological damage and cancer. Perhaps even more worrisome, though, are dispersants known as phthalates that cause hormonal and reproductive issues, birth defects and developmental disorders. A 2007 review found that 12 out of 14 widely available air fresheners contained phthalates. Some of the air fresheners that tested positive for phthalates were labeled as ‘all-natural’ or ‘unscented.’” (Scientific American)
Phthalates, plasticizers that also have been related to obesity in humans, occur in many PVC items as well as in scented items such as air fresheners, laundry products, and personal care products.” - www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3279464/
