Yerba santa works best when used in combination with sage. After smudging with sage to cleanse the energy of your home, burn yerba santa to uplift the energy of the space. Burning yerba santa bundles is the same as burning sage. You’ll need a fireproof bowl + a lighter, and to use either a feather or your hand to direct the smoke into different areas of your space. After lighting your yerba santa bundle, say your intention for the yerba santa aloud. Depending on your reason for smudging, your intention may differ, but an example of an intention that you could use, would be:
I ask that the spirit of yerba santa help me to honor my boundaries, and fill this space with love and light.
Then, place the bundle in your fireproof container, and walk throughout your space spreading the uplifting energy of the smoke. Make sure to smudge overlooked areas, like window sills, closets and doorways, with the healing smoke as well. And don't overlook your own energy field! Immerse yourself in its smoke.
How to Use Yerba Santa:
- Ask the plant medicine spirit of the yerba santa to be there with you, and ask that it assist in creating boundaries and infusing you with love and light. Hold the yerba santa above a fireproof container as you light it. Let the stick catch fire, and allow it to burn for about 30 seconds. Then blow it out.
- As the smoke wafts from the stick or leaves, first immerse yourself, directing the smoke toward your body. We suggest starting at the top of your head and working downward toward your feet.
- Fill your space with the sacred Yerba Santa smoke. Open your front door and all of the windows in the house to allow the unwanted energy to be released. Starting at the front door, smudge around the outside of the door and frame. Now, walk back inside, and begin filling the space with this energy by moving clockwise through it. Say these words out loud or silently: "I ask that the spirit of yerba santa help me to honor my boundaries, and fill this space with love and light.”
- When you’re finished, extinguish the stick by snuffing it out inside of the shell or a fireproof container.
We recommend that you store your Yerba Santa Smudge Stick in a dry, dark place until you are ready to use it. All sales are final on this item. Keep out of reach of children, animals and flammable material.
