Afternoon all…hope your weekend is going well?
Do you smudge? Yourself, your house, your magickal tools?
I have smudged myself as well as my house/rooms and tools with purchased white Sage. I dont have a pre-rolled smudge stick, just some loose sage that I have lit and wafted the smoke.
Now I know most sticks are made from American White Sage but apparently demand may be outstripping supply!
Apparently the magickal herb Mugwort is not only good as a tea or a smoke but also for smudging with, so isnt it marvellous that I have found some growing on poor ground just around the corner from my house…can you imagine my happy dance when I identified it?
I harvested some the other day, both for myself and a friend, leaving plenty of leaves on the plants and not taking any flowering heads as some of them will be harvested too (apparently flower tea is excellent for lucid dreaming)
I have bunches of leaves tied ready for hanging and drying out..
I have also made my own Smudge sticks…
All hung up and ready to dry….
I have made 3 different types, the first is Mugwort, Lavender and a little bit of loose white sage leaf…these are tied with lilac thread.
The second batch are Mugwort and Lavender and are tied with black thread.
And the final batch are just Mugwort and tied with green thread…
With this little lot I should be fine for smudging for quite sometime dont you think?
And this is my feather wand/wafting tool….what is the proper name for this?
This has been made from feathers that both I and my children have found whilst out walking, I am really pleased with it and it does its job more than adequately.
Do you smudge, do you make your own smudge sticks?
I would love to know?
