  • Before meditation
  • After an argument or any illness
  • Upon returning home from crowded situations

How to Use Smudge Sticks

Holding the smudge stick by the “handle” end, use a lighter to ignite the tip.  Blow out any open flames so that the leaves slowly smolder.  Next, wave the smudging wand around a room, person, or objects to direct the fragrant, cleansing smoke.  Catch the ashes in a heat-resistant dish. (An abalone shell is traditional, but you can use a smudge pot, incense burner, or even a regular plate, as long as you put something under it.)  Smudge sticks can be extinguished in a dish of sand and re-used many times.

Yerba Santa: Yerba ("holy herb") is a sweet-smelling plant that grows in the arid hills of the Southwest.  It got its common name from Spanish monks who were impressed with its healing properties. Yerba Santa is burned to honor ancestors, increase psychic powers, and bring healing and protection. It is also a traditional remedy against coughing and many other ailments. Yerba Santa grows wild only in certain areas of California and Northern Mexico—a true regional treasure.
