Yerba santa translates as ‘Holy Herb.’ In Native American and Spanish cultures, it is regarded as sacred. It is specifically believed to have healing powers and is used to neutralize negative energies. As a result, it is known to protect and purify both the environment and the user. Our yerba santa smudge sticks are 100% natural and tied lovingly together with a piece of cord. Used on their own, they can replace the traditional sage smudge sticks. However, for optimum results, use them after smudging with sage. Since it is believed that sage will cleanse the energy within space, and yerba santa will then lift the energy higher. Until you are ready to use it, we recommend that you store your smudge stick in a dark, dry place.
Never leave a burning smudge stick unattended. Only ever place in a heatproof container and do not place the container on a flammable surface. Keep away from children and pets and do not ingest. Also, make sure you dispose of used sticks safely.

Light the top of this smudge 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 yerba santa smudge stick, hover the stick over your crystals allowing the smoke to permeate each crystal. When you are finished place your yerba santa smudge stick in a fireproof container and extinguish it. Ensure the area is ventilated well.
