A smudge stick is a bundle of dried herbs that is burned to produce smoke used to purify or bless an object or area in a process called smudging

A variety of herbs are used to create smudge sticks, the most popular being sage.

It is my recommendation that you use what grows near you so that you can be assured that it has been collected responsibly.

Other smudging herbs include:

Agrimony - Agrimonia eupatoria

Bay Laurel - Laurus nobilis

Bistort - Polygonum bistorta, P. bistortoides

Chrysanthemum - Chrysanthemum spp

Hyssop - Hyssopus officinalis

Lavender - Lavandula spp

Marsh Mallow - Althea officinalis

Motherwort - Leonurus cardiaca

Mugwort - Artemisia vulgaris

Rosemary - Rosmarinus officinalis

Sage - Salvia spp
Zones: 5-8
