Sage & Rose - Smoke Clearing Bundles
Bundles of beautiful botanicals, made with conventionally grown sage, cedar & botanicals that are sustainable grown. (not White Sage & never wild harvested)
These bundles include conventional grown sage, roses, and gemstones. Approximately 6-7"L
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 Indigenous traditions. To this day, many indigenous people continue to collect & bundle plants that are 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 be 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 an emulate this cultural practice it can be viewed as cultural appropriation & minimize the importance of this ritual to the Native American people.
Many 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) remove that as well. You do not have to burn the entire bundle. Once lit, do not allow the bundle to flame, you only want the smoke.
During November, Native American Heritage month, a portion of each bundle sale will go back to an Indigenous organization.
