I love these smudge sticks made from the Yerba Santa herb.
It can be used in various ways, but most commonly Yerba Santa is used for smudging or clearing places, people or objects and bringing in an energy of positivity.
Yerba Santa (Eriodictyon glutinosum and Eriodictyon californicum) is grown in the dry hill areas of California and Northern Mexico. This wand has somewhat sweet smell and is a wonderful ceremonial wand to burn for healing, purification, & love.
Yerba Santa is also credited with protection properties and is especially recommended for supporting those in grief, turmoil, or uncertainty.
To Use: Light the bundle from the top end and carry carefully over a flame proof smudge stick holder, bowl or other suitable item. You can also crush the leaves and sprinkle them over a lit charcoal tablet placed in a fire proof bowl. Allow the smoke to reach all corners of the room you are cleansing or hold your crystals above the smoke for a few seconds.
These measure approximately 5" to 6" long and are about 2" wide. Each is a bit different as these are handmade.
