Yellow Calcite Sage & Cedar Smoke Clearing Bundles
Bundles of good energy are made with home grown sage (never wild harvested) cedar & other botanicals that are sustainably grown.
These bundles are made with sage, cedar, a variety of colorful flowers, and a yellow calcite crystal. Yellow Calcite is a stone of hope & light heartedness. This stone is associated with the solar plexus, self confidence and hope.
Approximately, 6.5-7"L. If received fresh, please expect a bit of shrinkage when plants have completely dried out.
Here is a little bit of information of the origins of these bundles & the culture from which they come.
The practice of 'Saging or Smudging" comes from centuries old Native American traditions. To this day, Native people will bundle plants sacred to their culture & geographic region to use in important ceremonies to clear bad energy from a person, place or object. This practice is a very special part of the Native people's heritage & the plants are seen as medicine.
To respectful to this cultural practice we want to avoid using the term 'Smudging or Saging' & use the language of 'Smoke Cleansing'. When non-Native people burn sage emulating this ceremony it can be viewed as cultural appropriation & minimize the importance of this ritual to the Native American people.
Though, 'Smoke Cleansing' can look very similar to "Smudging' the act of burning certain woods, incense, herbs, & other botanicals is not inherently specific to any one particular culture.
The majority of our customers tell us that they do not intend on burning these bundles, rather choosing to completely dry out & simply save to keep as a visual reminder of the energy they wish to attract.
However, should you decide to burn the bundles, please make sure you have adequate ventilation as well as a fire safe dish to catch any stray cinders. Remove the string & any gemstones (some gemstones may have a dot of glue to hold secure as the bundles shrink from drying). You do not have to burn the entire bundle. Once lit, do not allow the bundle to flame, you only want the smoke.
A portion of the sales of any of our bundles goes back to charity.
