Piñon & Blue Sage Smudge Stick
Pinon Pine, Piñon edulis
Blue Sage, Artemesia tridentata
Piñon pine is commonly used in purification & healing rituals and invokes clairvoyance, compassion & spiritual strength. When burned, piñon energetically creates a peaceful & inviting environment helping us to better connect with Spirit through meditation. Piñon teaches us the power of control, balance & moving beyond negativity, jealousy or anger that place limitations on our lives.
Blue Sage is a hardy, plentiful sagebrush plant found in arid & semi-arid climates throughout the Southwest. It is used in cleansing & purification rituals in much the same way as traditional white sage. The smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person, object or space being smudged. Sage is used to 'wash off' the outside world when one enters ceremony or other sacred space. Objects are likewise washed off with sage medicine smoke to rid them of unwanted influences.
