Rue is used in spells to protect against the evil eye, break or reverse a jinx, healing from an illness, cleansing negativity, and removing love hexes. Rue should not be used during pregnancy, by those who have kidney problems, or by those who are using blood thinning medication.
Burning bundles of dried herbs – sometimes called smudge sticks – 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.
Ways to use a Wildharvested Rue 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 waft the smoke over your body or someone else’s for a spiritual cleanse or for imbuing.
Wave the smoke over ritual tools or objects that you wish to bless.
