Our stunning Chakra Smudge Sticks are a beautifully sized white sage stick, with the addition of a strip of gorgeous decorative rose petals in chakra colours, to focus on each chakra as you burn through the stick.
Each stick is typically between 10-11cm in length, and around 3-4cm in thickness. A simple instruction card is included with each smudge stick purchase.
NOTE RE SIZE: As these are a handmade natural product each batch of smudge sticks we sell may have a slightly different shape and size. Some have longer or shorter stems, or are slightly longer or thicker than others. The item you receive may look a little different from the items pictured, however all are made from herbs of the highest quality, and generally within the size range as outlined above, if not larger.
White Sage has been traditionally used to purify the mind, body and spirit before praying, to cleanse the atmosphere and disperse negativity - sage is believed by many to be a masculine plant that can reduce or eliminate negative energy; some place sage at doorways for protection against evil. Today, it can be used to purify homes, offices or other spaces; the smell of sage will remind you of the desert and the sacredness of life.
THE PRIMARY CHAKRAS
Originating in Eastern spiritual traditions, the seven primary chakras are considered to be the basis of our human existence. The basic system consists of seven chakras stretching from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
According to Hindu and Buddhist belief, life force energy (Prana) circulates through various nadis, or pathways of energy. The seven main chakras align with the central channel and each chakra has specific physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual and energetic characteristics. Chakras can become blocked through emotional upset, conflict or loss caused by things like fear, anxiety or stress. These blocks disrupt the overall harmony which can in turn effect our health and wellbeing.

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.
To burn a smudge stick, remove the yarn binding the stick and place it in a heatproof dish or abalone shell filled with sand or ashes, to keep it upright. Light the tip of the bundle on fire until the Smudge Stick catches, then blow out the flame to allow the herbs to smoulder, sending sweet fragrant smoke into the air. To extinguish, invert into the sand until the embers are out. Never leave a lit smudge stick unattended. There are many rituals for smudging houses etc - more information can be found via the internet if you're looking for instructions towards a specific ritual.
