This ‘holy herb’ gives off a pleasant and uplifting scent. These herb sticks are used in traditional smudging practice for protection, purification, healing, spiritual strength, courage, psychic abilities, and finding your innermost self.
It is traditionally used for protection and setting boundaries. Yerba Santa has also been used for love, purification, growth, empowerment and beauty, and the release of emotional pain stored in the heart chakra.
Smudging is the cleansing of auras and energies of a person or space. Lighting the bundle and using the smoke around the person or space along with visualizing the removal of negative energy forms the ritual of smudging.
Using a smudging tool is part of many wiccan/pagan Traditions. The burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification is also common practice among many religious, healing, and spiritual groups. In theory, the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy.

Sage is a great energy cleanser. It cleanses negativity and entities and clears the aura.
