Our exquisite {Queen Bee} handcrafted smudge wand is the perfect ritual tool for self care, authenticity, and forgiveness. With sweetgrass and a blend of white and desert sage, this beautiful and aromatic smudge will level you up to your highest self.

Each wand is meticulously handcrafted especially for The Pine Torch by Angie Terrazas of Topanga Window. Wands also include bespoke adornments like hand-tied ribbon, pendants, feathers and other elements for a beautiful and functional piece of dynamic art that can be integrated into your daily ritual practice. No two wands are alike, and pieces may have slight variations.

About the Elements:

Magic Desert Sage: A richly aromatic sage found in the Santa Fe/Taos area. Its deep aromatic fragrance draws your heart and spirit like a wind-swept flame.

White Sage: Native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found mainly in the coastal sage scrub habitat of Southern California and Baja California, on the western edges of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts.

Sweet Grass: Known as the hair of Mother Earth, sweetgrass symbolizes kindness - as it bends and doesn't break when walked upon. As the smoke from smudging rises it is believed that our prayers too will rise up to the world of spirit to be seen, heard, and remembered.

About Smudging:
Using the smoke from sacred fires, or burning herbs or incense as a purification ceremony or ritual has been a common practice amongst many traditions throughout the ages. The smoke of medicinal plants and natural substances has been used extensively in many cultures for cleansing and healing. While smudging has North American/Native American origins, ritual incense has been used for centuries throughout the world -- from the Ancient Egyptians to the frankincense and myrrh in church incense censors -- cleansing and blessing rituals are age-old and can be integrated into your daily ritual practice.

When to Smudge:
Or more importantly, there is never not a good time to smudge. Smudging can be done daily, as part of your ritual practice, given as a gift, put on your personal altar, or just done whenever you feel like it. Which brings us to when to smudge:

- Whenever you feel like it
- Daily, as part of your ritual practice
- After an argument
- When moving into a new space
- When setting an intention
- To bless yourself or others
- When you feel to many people have deposited energy in your space
- To purify your body, aura, energy, etc.
- During ceremonial ritual
- To combat emotional/spiritual negativity

Benefits of Sage:
Sage literally clears the air. Burning sage releases negative ions and neutralizes the air. Another added, scientifically proven, bonus is that sage kills 94% of airborne bacteria. And unlike air fresheners or chemical air purifiers, sage is safe for kids and pets and completely natural. It is an acquired scent, but once you get hooked, you'll be integrating sage into your daily ritual practice. It's easy, it's quick, it's grounding.

Instructions for Use:

Our handcrafted sage smudge sticks can be used as a beautiful fragrant decor or as a smudge stick for daily ritual or ceremony. 

To use your smudge stick, (please take care to remove your feather, charms and ribbon before burning). Light until the end is fully lit and smoking. Start in the center of the space and move in a counter-clockwise motion, leaving a door or window open so the negative energy (and smoke) can escape. A ceramic bowl, shell, or other vessel that can contain ash and heat is a good idea to have on-hand while you burn sage.
