Mugwort Smudge Sticks are a beautiful herb bundle to use for protection while traveling – smudging yourself, your loved ones or even your car can spiritually protect you from danger and open the roads to you so that you avoid delays and problems. It is also a psychoactive incense that assists in opening up the third eye and enabling strong psychic awareness and contact with the spirit realms.
Burning bundles of dried herbs – like a mugwort smudge stick – has been a part of many spiritual traditions dating back millennia and connects all traditional cultures, from the Native Americans to the Druids, from the Zulus to the Maoris, from Aboriginals to the Mayans, from the Chinese to the Balinese, all of which have age-old forms of cleansing and blessing rituals.
Smudging With Mugwort Smudge Sticks
Smudging with Mugwort is easy with one of these wild harvested bundles. Just light either end with a match or lighter until it catches on fire. Blow it out and allow the smoke to travel around your space. Using Mugwort for smudging is a powerful and amazing practice that you’ll love adding to your spiritual routine.
Smudging Mugwort: What To know
If you plan to smudge Mugwort make sure that you’re not getting ready to operate any machinery or heavy equipment, or do anything potentially dangerous. While burning mugwort will not put you into a fully altered state it can help you enter into a very foggy, trance-like state which would make some tasks more difficult. Keep this in mind before you smudge Mugwort or burn a mugwort smudge.
How to Use a Mugwort Smudge
Ways to use a Wildharvested smudge stick:
- Light the smudge stick walk in a large circle, stopping at East, South, West and North to create a sacred space for magic within the circle.
- Light the bundle and walk through the rooms of a home or other building to cleanse, protect or imbue the space with energy.
- Light the bundle and waft the smoke over your body or someone else’s for a spiritual cleanse or for imbuing.

This does not grow where I live at all, but it is one of my favorite burning herbs. The bundles I have gotten from here have always been well dried and high quality.
