Smudge Stick - DESERT SAGE
Desert Sage (Artemisia tridentata) is best known as the richly aromatic sage that blankets the Santa Fe, Taos area. Its fragrance draws your heart to the wind swept, sun blessed deserts of New Mexico. It's use as a smudging herb as a traditional alternative to white sage (listed separately) is believed to cleanse the mind, body, and spirit, or even a particular place, of unwanted negative energies. Our Desert Sage smudge sticks are approx 10-11cm in length, and around 2 - 2.5cm in diameter.
WHAT IS SMUDGING?
Many native Indian tribes of the US and Canada traditionally perform a purification ritual known as 'smudging' to clear the atmosphere of negative vibrations and fill the environment with positive, uplifting energies. Smudge Sticks are typically bundled wands made of bound herbs such as White Sage or Sweetgrass, used for smudging purposes - though other herbs and botanicals such as Palo Santo wood and Cedar leaves have also been used for this purpose.
See our SMUDGING section for more info.
Black Tourmaline is a powerful protective and grounding stone, believed to protect against negative energies and thoughts, and ill wishes. It can also encourage a positive attitude and outlook on life. Being an excellent 'grounding' crystal, Black Tourmaline is often used in meditation and healing to enhance the flow of the energy throughout the body.
Purple toned AMETHYST is used when searching for spiritual guidance. It is a very spiritual stone believed to have a high spiritual vibration, and is said to increase meditative states, visualisations and spiritual awareness. It can also aid in blocking stress and promoting happiness.
Amethyst is also known as a 'guardian stone' that can be used for healing, protection and balance, and a feeling of confidence. It is believed to help with headaches and fatigue, and encourage good dreams - try using with Lavender, Chamomile, Cedarwood or a Sleep Blend for a calming pre-sleep blend.
NOTE:Being completely natural and hand cut, each crystal will vary in size, shape and texture and will be unique in its own special way.
AQ PREMIUM HANDMADE INCENSE STICKS
While almost everyone has heard of the common incense stick, most people are surprised to learn of the inferior materials often used in cheap commercial incense - ingredients such as coal powder, washing soda ash, grease and used motor oils, rubber solutions and melted tyres and even albumen powder from the blood of slaughtered animals which is used as a binding agent. Those inferior incense sticks also tend to use synthetic perfumes, fragrances and other chemicals, believed to release toxins and harmful CO2 when burnt.
Instead of stocking the cheap and nasty options, Aroma Queen strives to list only the best quality incense, and our AQ PREMIUM HANDMADE range showcases our finest incense, with quality you can see on every stick.
Exclusive to Aroma Queen, this stunning range of incense has been created with a focus on the very best in quality. Our sticks are handmade for us featuring natural ingredients, made using the traditional 'masala' method which involves blending naturally aromatic botanicals, woods, resins and spices into a paste and rolling it around an inner bamboo stick.
Sandalwood has traditionally been used as a protection incense - this kit includes two packs of AQ Premium Handmade incense: Sacred Sandal and Smooth Sandal, as well as a Black Stained Ashcatcher burner.
