Wormwood, White Sage & Mugwort Smudge
Burning sage is one of the oldest Indigenous practices and one of the purest methods of cleansing a person, a group or space. Sage is primarily used to bless, clear & cleanse any space & individual. It’s important to remember it is most often used to rid one of any unwanted thoughts, emotions or energies in the same way we would wash off something that is unwanted off the body. Sage is great to burn in any space after a disagreement or when dealing with someone who is upset or anxious. There are a number of species of sage but it most important to remember regardless of the species of sage they are all for healing, meditating & cleansing of the space & person. Sage is an amazing disinfectant and anti-bacterial. As it burns it disinfects any space of allergens or bacteria.
Mugwort is an herb that can be used in order to allow one to go on shamanic journeys & to amplify the intention to go places. It is often used before bedtime to stimulate the necessary dreams to allow for the travel during sleep or before meditation. Often associated with the summer solstice to banish & force evil away for another year & attract good luck & spirits. Can be used above doorways to protect the house while smudging will most definitely dispel any evil spirits/energies away.
Wormwood is a very powerful & protective plant used to clear psychic connections & channels which allow for astral travel by opening the necessary channels.
