Black Sage (Mugwort) Smudge Stick

Like all sage varieties, Black Sage or Mugwort is a form of artemisia, whose name comes from the Greek goddess Artemis (Diana). These plants are traditionally used for cleansing ourselves and our spaces (home, work) of astral parasites and negative energies. 

We prefer mugwort over white sage because mugwort grows easily abundantly; white sage is being over-harvested by unethical suppliers (they often steal it from restricted sacred lands).

The most common way to use mugwort is in this form: dried and bundled sage is ignited on the end, then the flames are blown out, allowing the tips to smolder and release plumes of smoke. The smoke is then distributed over the area to be cleaned, in accompaniment with prayer. You can then dip the hot end in water, saving it for later use. In this way, a bundle will last a long time.

  • Wild-crafted, hand tied
  • Naturally repels negative influences

"In their operations of elemental magic, ancient magicians used smudging with laurel branches, mugwort (artemisia), rue, sage, pine, rosemary, etc. Such plants were burned on burning coals. This observance is magnificent. The air is filled with the smoke of plants, the exorcised fire will reflect the will of the operator, and the subtle forces of nature will listen and respond to him." - Samael Aun Weor, Secret Doctrine of Anahuac

These smudge sticks have become part of my soul. While burning them can be a a wonderful reprieve from the desire to hold something like a cigarette and ash it, as I quit smoking a long time but still long for a similar experience, the burning of a friend can be quite jarring and make us appreciate the inherit transience of life.

These Sage smudge sticks have taught me to be more conscious of the horrible, painful, transformation that air, food, incense, impressions (?), etc. go through when being consumed, and the purifying work of the Sage elemental makes it much easier to recognize the world we live in...

P.S. Thanks for the "Please Review [So & So Item] in the Glorian Store" emails. I will work on that. ( :
