Smudge Stick - LAVENDER SAGE (Purple Sage, WILD LAVENDER),
While not related to the Lavender we use in aromatherapy (Lavandula angustifolia), Wild Lavender Sage (Salvia officinalis purpurea - also known as Lavender Sage or Purple Sage) is a member of the Salvia (sage) family. It gets its name from its clusters of purple flowers which make it physically resemble Lavender, especially when in bloom, and its similar clean and flowery fragrance. The leaves are rounded, green, and slightly fuzzy like Common Sage, but darken to gray when dried. Wild Lavender is known for its calming, peaceful, and sedating effects, and may inspire love and relieve anxiety.
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.
Pale Pink ROSE QUARTZ is known as the 'heart stone' - the ultimate love and relationship crystal - and has been used as a love token since as early as 600 BC. It is also said to be a 'mothering' crystal, helping in treating depression or during times requiring forgiveness. It is also used to help relieve stress and frustration, and ease anxiety.
A deep red colour, Garnets are often associated with passion, protection, power and for inspiring courage. Magically, Garnets are believed to have significance in relation to emotional manipulators, vampires, or evil spirits. Garnet has been used historically for protection and safety (by the Crusaders), or to accompany the Anglo-Saxons into the afterlife. Garnet is a positive stone, inspiring love and commitment, passion and devotion.
NOTE:Being completely natural and hand cut, each piece 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.
Rose and Patchouli have traditionally been used to represent and inspire love and romance, with Patchouli being an aphrodisiac scent - this kit includes two 10-stick packs of AQ Premium Handmade incense sticks - Tea Rose and Nag Champa - Patchouli, as well as a handmade timber ashcatcher burner with a brass moon design.
All items in this kit are also available separately.
