Frankincense is a powerful remedy which comes, in resin form, from the Boswellia tree which can be found in Oman, Yemen, northeast Africa and parts of India. It has been harvested for thousands of years, long prized for its spicy, woodsy aroma when burned.
Frankincense has a number of powerful properties. Among them: it supports healthy cellular function; increases blood flow and circulation; reduces inflammation; promotes feelings of wellness and relaxation. All good things, if you ask us!
Chamomile has long been championed as a calming, relaxation-inducing herb and is often enjoyed in tea form. Its benefits include: fighting anxiety and depression; fighting allergies and hay fever; anti-inflammatory; natural remedy for PMS and other menstrual disorders.
Don't get us started on Lavender! Who doesn't love it? It has calming properties and naturally reduces mental stress and anxiety. Lovely Lavender aids digestion, increases cognitive functions and boosts immunity.
The combination of all of these beautiful scents is what makes our Sacred Smoke Smudge Blend so unique, calming and spiritually enhancing.
How to Use Our Sacred Smoke Smudge Blend
Using our beautiful blend for smoke smudging, is easy. For those of you who have smudged before, or do so regularly, go ahead and do your thang! Everyone has their own style of smudging, or a ritual that they love, so go ahead and do what suits you best.
For those babes who haven't tried smudging before, here's a quick how-to:
1. Place the Sacred Smoke Smudge Blend into the vessel of your choice. We recommend a paua, or abalone shell, or a fireproof bowl or dish.
2. Carefully light the blend with a match or lighter. Blow the flames out before they start to fully ignite, so that just glowing, smoking embers remain.
3. Allow the embers to continue smoking. If you are smudging an area, walk around the area, carrying the smoking blend (in the shell/vessel), letting the smoke waft into all of the corners of the space. Alternatively, you may wish to simply set the shell/vessel on a shelf, bench or table and let the smoke rise up and away.
4. If you are conducting a meditation or spiritual ritual, set about this while the smoke wafts and rises.
5. Our Sacred Smoke Smudge Blend comes with a charcoal disk for longer, less smoky burning. Perfect to use in your home!
When to Use the Sacred Smoke Smudge Blend
Put it this way: you can't smudge too much! Smudge every day, if you like!
Smudging releases negative energy and welcomes in new positive energies such as peace and love. Some good times to perform a smudging ritual is when you move into a new home, room or office; when you start a new job or your own business venture; before and after receiving guests into your home; before or during meditation; after an illness or an argument; or before or after a yoga or healing session.
Anytime you feel that negative energies need clearing to make way for new positive energies, or you feel the need to cleanse and purify your space, simply light your sacred smoke smudge blend and let those good vibes in!
