House of Herbology: Make Your Own Smudge Sticks

Smudge sticks are a great way to cleanse your space and to banish negative energies.

It’s also simple and easy to make your own smudge sticks, and what’s great about making your own is you get to experiment, putting together bundles of dried herbs and dried flowers of your choice. Also if you want to use the smudge stick for a specific purpose, you can check the magickal properties of each herb and flower and apply it to create a magickal bundle for your intended use.

With a herb base that most usually contains sage, given that sage is renowned for its cleansing properties, you can add other herbs such as rosemary and bay leaves, and perhaps lavender. And if you received roses this Valentine’s Day, you may want to consider using them in your smudge bundle once they start to wilt. The possibilities for smudge sticks are endless.
