Casting Instructions for 'Smudge Stick Cleansing'

Smudge sticks are readily available from New Age stores or you can make your own...

1) Dry bunches of herbs

2) When they have completely dried, bind them together with thin cotton thread.

3) When needed, the stick is lit and the smoke is directed towards and over whatever needs cleansings.

4) You may use your bare hands to direct the smoke.


Smudge sticks are neat, compact and easily controlled, discreet and mobile.

Smudge sticks tend to smolder long after the flames appear to have died out. Do not leave the stick unattended or out in the open. Rest it fully on a metal tray or dinner plate when finished using it - and do not let it come into direct contact with anything flammable.

Have water nearby as a back-up.
