Wild harvested in the PNW from fallen branches. Tied with hemp string.
Western Red Cedar is one of my favorite trees. It is a survival tree. Used for baskets, clothing, shelter, medicine- spiritually and physically. Cedar is a sustainable source for smudging as it is a quite abundant evergreen here in the PNW.
Burn Cedar for protection and clearing of ones self or space. It has a nice aroma like an aromatic fire.
How to use:
Light the end over a candle or a lighter until a strong ember forms. Use a bowl, shell or a plate to carry under your burning braid. Wave your hand, feather or fan to move the smoke to the direction of where you would like the medicine smoke to go. Open some windows so the negative energy and or bad spirits have a place to escape. Use strong intentions and speak out loud or silently what you are asking. When done, you can snuff out remaining braid in some sand, dirt, wet grass, or run under some water (dry out before storing again) and use again. Most braids-depending on size can be used numerous times.
Warning: This is a flammable product. Please use this safely with a fire proof bowl under it.
