This listing is for one 4 oz. (by volume) tin of Greenman Wood Spirit Blend Smudge for burning, potpourri, or magical work. An instruction sheet on smudging is included.*
A delightful and sweet walk in the woods, this smudge blend is not only powerfully clearing, but soothing and smells earthy, spicy, and sweet. This is a potent blend of 10 ingredients carefully chosen to work well together for scent, but also for more focused energetic work. I designed this blend for the purposes of doing ancestral work, as well as to connect with the elementals, fairies, genus loci, and landvoettir. To honor and work with the Old Gods and Nature Spirits, as well as not only your personal ancestral lineage, but the Ancestors who lived upon the lands before you. I also recommend adding a small herbal offering from your own garden or native to the lands upon which you live, to add your own energy to this amazing smudge blend if you do this work. Whichever way you choose to use this lovely blend is up to you, and is perfect to use just to clear energy and bless your home with a deliciously inviting incense.
As with all my smudge blends, I created it in sacred space during full moon energies, with healing, purifying, and loving intent. Soothing but uplifting, this blend is also fantastic during seasonal changes when doing a bit of decorating/cleaning. Invite the helpful home spirits, Guides, and Ancestors in to help you bless your space with Greenman Wood Spirit Smudge Blend! This will create a nice bit of smoke, which is needed and helpful for these purposes, so be sure to crack some windows (as always recommended after house smudging and blessings!) for a few minutes when finished.
Made with Eastern red cedarwood, juniper leaf, juniper berry, garden sage (Sage officinalis), rosemary, bayberry, mugwort, lavender, frankincense, and myrrh. These ingredients were specifically chosen for their energetic effects as well as their magical and spiritual purposes!**
Greenman Wood Spirit Blend is suitable for burning on a charcoal disk for incense and energetic smudging. Pass the smoke over your body, objects, or the room you are in for a healing energetic smudging, or simply to enjoy the beautiful fragrance! Lovers of herbal smudges and incense will welcome this healing blend to their rituals and energetic practices.
**Mugwort is not recommended for use during pregnancy or nursing, as it can be an emmenagogue. Please look this up on the web for more information.
"The word ‘smudge’ comes from the old English word smogen. It is cited in several dictionaries as coming from 1400-50 late Middle English. It means to smear, blur, obscure, to smother with smoke, to use dense smoke to protect an area from insects. Another meaning is also ‘taken by surprise’. In English the term ‘smudge’ also means smut or dirt. It has been in use since the 15th century, and first appeared after the Norman conquest, so it’s certainly of Germanic origin." - Rachel Patterson
Smudging with sacred herbs and resins is a tradition as old as time, utilized by peoples of most spiritual and religious traditions. All herbs and resins have individual healing properties, known to our ancient ancestors, and used and appreciated in modern times, as well. Smudge with herbs to purify, clear, calm and neutralize chaotic or unwanted energies.
