Hand made in Austin Texas. Each bundle is wrapped in cotton string, with ethically-sourced, organic sage. Bundles vary in exact length, but most are about 4.5” long, and about 1.25” in diameter, this is enough to cleanse your space many times. The bundle comes in a cotton jute bag, with a small How-To-Smudge booklet inside. Some say they clear the mind and space of negative energies. Science tells us that Sage is antimicrobial and antibacterial. Burning your smudge stick will release negative ions that neutralize positive ions like pet dander, pollution, dust and mold! I like to make a little mindfulness ritual out of it. I walk around with the smudge stick fanning the smoke around the rooms of my house while concentrating on the love and positive energy I have experienced there. At the very least the herbaceous smoke leaves a nice smell behind.
