Yerba Sage Smudge Bundle
Shipping calculated at checkout.
White Sage is used in Native American smudging ceremonies to drive away bad energy, cleanse and purify. Yerba Santa, the Holy & Sacred Herb, is known for its healing powers and is traditionally used as a smudge or incense for protection and purification. It can also been used as incense with an uplifting scent.
Yerba santa, which literally means sacred herb in Spanish, has been used for centuries for a variety of illnesses, such as bronchitis, colds, coughs, diarrhea, and stomach aches. The Spanish came to know of its medicinal value through Native Americans, who either smoked or made infusions of yerba santa. The herb, also known as bear's weed, consumptive's weed, gum bush, and mountain balm, is still primarily used for respiratory congestion, either from acute asthma, colds, or coughs.
As practiced by generations of these native people, the pointed end of the smudge bundle, while held over a bowl of sand, is ignited.
Blowing on the glowing surface will provide the fragrant smoke. Saying a prayer for someone special or in need, while gently wanding the bundle around the area, will enhance the enjoyment of this ancient sacred ritual.
After smudging extinguish the lighted embers by rubbing in the bowl of sand. Retie the string if needed.
Then place the bundle on your sacred alter for future use.
