Burning Herb Bundles or Smudge Sticks
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 Yerba Santa Smudge Stick
Getting started with yerba santa smudging is easy! Here are a few things you can try:
- 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.
- Wave the smoke over ritual tools or objects that you wish to bless.
Yerba Santa Magical Properties
There are tons of magical properties of yerba santa, and many yerba santa smudge uses other than just cleansing your space. It has powerful healing properties and can be extremely useful in opening up psychic channels or for use when developing your psychic skills. The magical properties of yerba santa also extend to beauty spells. Read on for a very effective beauty spell using this specific herb bundle!
A Yerba Santa Beauty Spell
A simple but effective beauty spell is to keep a yerba santa smudge stick in your bathroom or on your vanity. When getting ready hold it and wave it over yourself. Even without lighting it the magical properties of this herb will become a part of your daily beauty rituals, amplifying the results of any beauty magic that yo udo. You can light it later as part of any yerba santa smudge ritual, or leave unlit forever. If you’re in a space where smoke is not practical you can light it outside under the full moon while sprinkled some water you’ve charged in the moonlight yourself! Keep part of the yerba santa smudge stick and bring it back to your vanity, altar, or bathroom and repeat again on the next full moon!
For in-depth information on how to use this and other herbs and roots magically, I recommend Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic and Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, both of which can be found in our Books section. You can also find a list of magical herbs in The Book of Candle Magic, and a list of magical plants in Baba Yaga’s Book of Witchcraft.
