I’ve been seeing quite a bit of “smudge sticks” around for sale. Although beautifully made, they are not energetically as practical as they seem. For example you would probably not want to keep the ashes of what you have intentioned to cleanse away in prior situations still stuck to the new sacred herbs you plan to use in further cleansings and blessings. With these smudge sticks, that is what’s happening. If that is the only way you can get a hold of your smudging herbs, then I recommend, as I have in the past, breaking it apart and taking what I need for that one time use. Sometimes you’ve got to use what you can get and Spirit understands that!
