In Aboriginal culture, a smudge stick is a bundle of dried herbs used as a way to cleanse a sacred space. I’ve seen smudge sticks popping up in a lot of small shops lately as a long lasting, great smelling incense. But it is super simple to make your own! See how after the jump…

What you need:
– Bundle of sage
– Hemp string

How to make it:
-Gather your sage together in a bunch.
-Cut a string 3 times the length of the sage.
-Begin by wrapping tightly around the base of the branches.
-Now wrap your way down to the tips of the sage leaves and the back to the base. Be sure to keep the bundle pretty tight, it will shrink down while it dries. Tie off the end.
-Hang it to dry for about a week.

 

 

Now your smudge stick is ready to use! Please be sure to ask for parental permission and assistance when burning the smudge stick. It is important to use a heat proof plate to catch the ashes. You should be able to get quite a few uses out of each smudge stick. Try adding different herbs into your smudge stick to get the scent you want – cedar, lavender, rosemary, juniper, sweetgrass, and balsam fir are commonly used in smudge sticks.
