This is a beautiful little beginner’s smoke cleansing set, that’s ideal if you wish to clear your space or crystals effortlessly. The set consists of a small sage smoke cleansing stick and palo santo stick to help cleanse and purify the space, a bag of dried cedar incense to help disperse negative energies, attract good spirits, and some lovely sweetgrass to attract positive energies. There is also a charcoal disk to aid the burning of loose incense and an abalone shell to hold the smoke cleansing tools. Finally, a pretty feather is included in this set, so you can fan the smoke to ensure it reaches all areas of the space being cleansed.
Never leave a burning smoke cleansing stick, palo santo stick, charcoal, sweetgrass, or dried cedar unattended. Only ever place in a heatproof container. Also, do not place the container on a flammable surface. Keep away from children and pets and do not ingest. Dispose of safely.
Be aware that these charcoal discs may sparkle profusely upon ignition. Allow sufficient air to flow around the charcoal to ensure burning. You may wish to open the window while it is igniting as it does give off smoke at this point. Once the charcoal disc has finished sparkling, it will start to glow, slowly spreading over the whole disc. Then, when the entire disc is glowing red hot, it is ready for adding the incense. Keep incense, and charcoal out of the reach of children—exercise due caution when igniting your charcoal disc and also when discarding the used ashes.

Smoke cleansing is closely tied to the spiritual practice of smudging by Native American / Indigenous Nations. White sage, palo santo, sweetgrass, and many other plants used for burning are considered sacred medicine by the Native American / Indigenous Nations. It is, therefore, essential that to avoid cultural appropriation and exploitation that you understand the cultural history of these items. As well as the history of suppression forced upon these native populations, where they were forbidden to practice their culture, language, and traditions, including smudging, until 1978 and the passage of the American Indian Religious Freedom Act. Even with the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, Native American / Indigenous Nations still find themselves continually persecuted for various reasons. When purchasing sage and other plants used for burning, it is essential to ensure that they are ethically sourced and that there is no over-harvesting of these sacred medicines. And where possible, always support the Native American and Indigenous Nations.
SAGE SMOKE CLEANSING STICK
Light the tip of the smoke cleansing stick and lightly fan it to extinguish any flames and allow the leaves to smolder gently. Holding it over a heatproof container walk through your space. Start at the door of the space to be cleared and move in either the direction in which the door opens (if the door opens into the room) or in a clockwise direction. Allow the smoke to fill the space as you move around the room, ensuring it reaches all corners and areas of the room, clearing negative energies and replacing them with a positive flow. You may fan the smoke with your hand or a feather. As you walk around the space doing this you are systematically sweeping all the negative energy out of the door.
To cleanse your crystals with the smoke cleansing stick, hover the stick over your crystals allowing the smoke to permeate each crystal. When you are finished place your smoke cleansing stick in a fireproof container and extinguish it. Ensure the area is ventilated well.
Until you are ready to use it, we recommend that you store your smoke cleansing stick in a dark, dry place.
PALO SANTO STICK
This can be used in the same way as the smoke cleansing stick, begin by lighting one end and fanning it lightly until you have a smoking stick.
To begin, carefully break the charcoal disk into several pieces. You have enough charcoal to use more than once. Next, carefully light a piece of charcoal and place it in a heat-proof container (for info on lighting, take a look at surrendertohappiness.com/product/incense-charcoal-disks). Once the charcoal is hot, place a small amount of cedar onto the charcoal until it smokes. You may now use this smoke as you would a smoke cleansing stick, to cleanse your space or your crystals.
Untie the sweet grass and use it as you would the dried cedar – with a charcoal disk. Charcoal disk
Be aware that these discs may sparkle profusely upon ignition. Allow sufficient air to flow around the charcoal to ensure burning. You may wish to open the window whilst it is igniting as it does give off smoke. Once the charcoal disc has finished sparkling it will start to glow, slowly spreading over the whole disc. When the entire disc is glowing red hot it is ready for adding the incense. Keep incense, and charcoal out of reach of children.
