The Global Shaman Cedar Smudge Sticks are grown and harvested by Native Americans in a sustainable manner that preserves their natural habitat. For centuries smudging, the burning of aromatic herbs has been believed to release the beneficial properties of each plant. The smoke of burning cedar is said to welcome good spirits and eliminate any negative energies. It is a perfect smudge to use when first moving into a new home. It will cleanse the home of any residual energies left from the previous owners. Our Global Shaman Cedar Smudges are packaged in biodegradable bags, with eco-friendly tags, in keeping with our commitment to the environment.
