These Rosemary wands are wonderful for protection, calming and cleansing. 4-5" long Rosemary is very strong for cleansing. The smoke can be used to cleanse, bless and heal a person, place or object being targeted. It is used to wash away the outside world to really penetrate the energy you are trying to heal or cleanse. All of our herbs are sustainably harvested from trusted sources. Our sources are conscious and considerate over the well being of the planet and honor the practice of growing their herbs. To Use: Have your herb stick, match or lighter, abalone shell, bowl and feather (optional) ready. Imagine a Blue or White light covered on your entire body. If it helps you to focus, Start with the top of your head and gradually move to your shoulders, your chest, your stomach legs and feet. This is your shield. When you feel ready, move to the next step. Light the tip of your herb sick, and focus on your intention of this session. Once the smoke is rolling, "wash" the smoke with your feather or hand in a back and forth, up and down motion over the person, place or object you are targeting. Speak your mantra. If the herb stick appears to need more flame, blow onto it to get it smoking again. When you are finished, Place the herb stick back into your shell or bowl until the smoke is completely out.
