If your energy is at low ebb and you need a boost, if your mind feels sluggish and you can't concentrate, if you constantly feel drained and depleted- this is a great time to smudge with a bundle of eucalyptus mixed with sage, to cleanse, balance, and purify yourself and your surroundings.
The blend of sage and eucalyptus is energizing to both the mind and the body. Although most people know eucalyptus as a decongestant, it can be used to unblock more than just your nose. Let it help you overcome your mental blocks, your creative blocks, and more.
Our Sage and Eucalyptus Smudge Bundle is approximately 4" long.
How do I light my Sage and Eucalyptus Smudge Bundle? Grasp the Sage and Eucalyptus Smudge Bundle at one end, and hold it with the other end pointed slightly downward. Hold a lighter, match, or even a lit candle, to the tip of the bundle. Once it catches, let it burn for a few seconds before you press the tip against a fire-proof surface (a bowl or shell works well) just long enough to extinguish the flames. Leave the smoldering embers, though. This is what will release the fragrant smoke, and let the herbs do their job.
Now what? Fix your intention firmly in your mind before you begin. Gently waft the smoke from the smoldering sage and eucalyptus over and around you and/or your tools, as you focus on driving away the bad vibes. Or if you are smudging your home, go from room to room, along the walls and into every corner, again, focussing on your purpose as you proceed. Be sure to open all doors and window give any malevolent spirits a route to depart.
Now how do I extinguish my herbal bundle? This herbal bundle does not burn particularly vigorously. Once you stop moving around, and place the herbs on a fire-proof surface, it will go out on its own after a few minutes. You do not need to wet the bundle to make it go out.
