Not a true sage, Artemisia ludoviciana is a lighter burning sagewort that is sweeter and less musky than our own California White Sage. Like our other Artemesias, this mountain 'Sage' is similar in sweetness to our Shasta Blue, Coastal, and sacred Sages- but with a slightly minty scent.

*"SMUDGING": the word used to describe the Native Indian practice of burning sage/herbs for Blessing and creating Sacred Space; using smoke to cleanse one’s self, space, and energy; an ancient ritual practiced by tribes across North, Central, and South America for centuries.
Prairie sage grows abundantly across the prairies and hills of the Dakotas, and has a long ceremonial history among Plain Tribes of North America. Called "Man Sage" by some, it has been used as offering, deodorizer, medicine, and insect repellent. "The common name is Cudweed Sagewort. The leaf is medium sized, somewhere between the narrow leaf of the desert sage and the broad leaf of the California white sage." (Adapted from Grassland Plants of South Dakota and the Northern Great Plains).
**Jasper** One of 10 Sacred Native American stones: brings balance to a room and energy field; calms and soothes. Good for grounding before setting off into new endeavors.
**The ARROWHEAD** is an ancient symbol reminding us of the Old World of the Americas. An important symbol to tribes, it is "a symbol for prayer...the shape of thought traveling to the divine" (Gerald Hausman). Traditionally interpreted on rock walls as resources, success in the hunt; focus. In current belief, the arrowhead signifies resourcefulness, our connection to all Creatures, and success in the highest spiritual endeavors.
** SMUDGING DIRECTIONS** Open a window first for air flow. Light the bundle tip, blow out flame. Keeping your sage bundle in shell or bowl, begin to fan smoke toward the heart first with your hand or a feather, and then over the head and all around the body to cleanse and clear the space around you. Your intention to cleanse and bless is key in smudging. Ritually bless yourself, each other, and your living/working spaces and tools. Your intentions intensify your offering. When finished, extinguish the bundle ember once your blessing ritual is finished- by either submerging it in sand or passing the bundle tip under running water. Prop up bundle in a bowl to dry, and it will be ready for your next cleansing ritual. Smudge as often as you feel a desire to begin, renew, and feel blessings.
**PLEASE** use care and wisdom when burning your herb bundles: Do not leave a burning smudge wand unattended. Take extra care around children and pets. When finished burning, run the tip under running water to make sure the burning ember inside is fully extinguished. Hang it to dry, or just prop up in your bowl, for your next use. These herbs are not safe for consumption. Only use for sachets, or burning as incense.
