h90 - sage - The term "Smudging" has come into common usage within Contemporary Shamanism; and approaches influenced by this; largely through its Native American derivations. To Smudge is to purify and cleanse yourself, and to make contact with the spirits- however you conceive them to be. From this we can see that Smudging is a powerful but simple way to use ceremony of connection and grounding in ones life. £5.50/$10

h91 - sage and sweetgrass - Smudging is also prayer- many native peoples consider that the smoke of the smouldering smudge mix is taken by the spirits in good ways, and if you make such offerings then the spirits will know you and want to help you in your life. There is a principle that one should only ask for 'Help & healing' through ceremony of this kind, and so if you need help with problems, need guidance or direction, or ask for healing for yourself or others, then it is fine to ask the spirits for their help in these ways. £5.50/$10

h92 - sage and cedar - Smudge sticks are most easily lit from a candle flame (Matches generally go out before the stick is lit). Once there's a flame blow it out so that the smudge stick is smoldering, not burning. The idea is to get curls of smoke, not to set the smudge stick on fire. (Special note: Don't smudge while infants, pregnant women, or people with respiratory diseases are in the room as the active chemical can be harmful.) £5.50/$10

h93 - sage and copal - If you're smudging yourself, fan the smoke so that it touches all parts of you. You may want to especially focus on areas where you feel there are blockages or where there has been or is physical, emotional, or psychic pain. Either single or multiple feather fans are excellent for fanning smoke over yourself or others. If you're smudging objects, such as crystals, you can hold them in the smoke. If you're smudging a group of crystals, a room or a group of people, walk about the perimeter, giving special attention to the corners and the places behind doors and fan the smoke throughout with a smudging fan. £5.50/$10

h94 - sage and lavender - For sweat lodges, some tribes boil up wild sage into a tea to splash on the heated stones when more steam is required, as well as to splash on their own bodies. Other tribes have placed pieces of sage in between the firewood in the belief that the plant will help to purify even the fire itself. In the Lakota yuwipi ceremony, a stem of sage is placed behind the right ear so that the spirits will know you. £5.50/$10

H81 - Lakota white sage wand, 14". This sage (salvia apiana) is highly revered by American Indians. For spiritual or medicinal purposes white sage is a powerful herb. American Indians have said that the smoke is useful not only for the purification of the body, but for material objects as well. For this reason sage is considered a sacred plant to many tribes.

sweetgrassbraid_s.jpg - 4.41 K
H109 - Sweetgrass Braids (18" - 22" long) These braids are wonderfully long and rich with scent. They infuse any space with their unique smell even when not being burned. There is a lot of sweetgrass in each braid and so these will last you quite a long time. Very important to the Sioux and Cherokee nations, its botanical name is Hierochloe Oderata. In these tribes, the sweetgrass is braided like hair braids. It could be burnt by lighting the end of it, or (more economically) by shaving little bits of it onto charcoal in a brazier. Sweetgrass is burnt after smudging with sage, to welcome in good influences after the bad had been driven out. It can also be carried in medicine bags and given to friends as an offering. Sweetgrass is very rare today, and traditional Plains people have been attempting to protect the last of it. Cedar, which is not endangered, can safely be used this way. Also Pinon pine needles (used more frequently by the Southwest Teneh, like the Navajo and Apache as well as the Pueblo people and the Zuni) and Copal (used by the Yaqui and in ancient times by the Azteca and the Maya) have similar effect. £5/$9.50
