Cedar is a commom tree here in North America. It can grow to be over 1000 years old because it's roots are resistant to rot. It is considered to be the tree of life in some cultures. When you burn cedar it crackles and pops which or "calls" out to the Universe.
Burning Cedar, or "smudging" can be beneficial in many ways:
-Cleanses energy of negativity/heaviness with in a home, of a person, or an object
-Brings in protection to a space or person
-It's crackling calls to the Universe to hear your prayers
-Can be used in spiritual practices/ceremonies/rituals
For instructions on how to burn, please see our home page where we have a short video demonstration.
Other herbs/woods that can be used for smudging are available in our store such as Sweet Grass, White Sage, and Palo Santo.
