Cedar - Blessing, Offering

In Native American tradition the smoke of cedar is used to carry prayers to the creator. It is used to bridge the gap between heaven and earth. It also seems that the cedar tree has connections with power and the sun through many varying traditions such as Sumerian legend, Cabalistic lore and Eqyptian mythology. It is often associated with breaking the misuse of power or powerful forces that may be having a negative influence. This does connect further with Native American tradition where the burning of Cedar is used to help banish nightmares and also to release heavy emotional energies such as depression. Smudge sticks can be used for cleansing of the aura, for example before meditation or prayer, or they quite often these days used by body workers and therapists. They can also be used for cleansing a house or dwelling and are often used in this way in Feng Shui.

 

How do I use my Smudge Stick?

Firstly, light your smudge stickfrom the end (extinguish carefully afterwards) or loose leaves if you have chosen to break off fragments of your smudge stick into a container. Wait a moment, then blow out the flames. Try to fan the embers lightly to keep them smoldering (you may have to re-light your stick). You can then use the smoke to cleanse a person, property or spaces - you can use a shell or a heat resistant container to catch the ashes. 

 

Smudging is a ceremony used to clear away negative energies and to attract ones that are more positive. Native Americans have traditionally used many herbs for this purpose, each one having a different effect on the aura and inner being. When smudging, try to feel connected with a power greater than yourself.  You may say prayers while using a feather, or simply the palm of your hand, to brush the smoke over you.

 

Size:

Each stick is approx 4 inches long and comes with a tag of instructions. Having tride to source these locally to no luck I've sourced these smudge sticks from California from an ethical source, and imported via sea to reduce carbon emissions.
