Our Bay Laurel and Rosemary Bundle Smudges are hand picked and handmade by an Iseum artisan and Reiki Mistress, Ankh-sen-Aset. The Bay and rosemary is grown on our Sanctuary.These smudge sticks are at least 5″ and have a quartz crystal embedded – imagine how powerful this is!Bay leaf burning has been used a way to relieve stress for centuries. The combination of chemicals (specifically the chemical linalool) in the leaves creates a smoke that, when inhaled, calms the body and mind. Burning bay leaves puts you in a calm and almost “psychedelic state,” but it doesn’t make you tired; the smoke can calm your body while simultaneously perking you up.
Rosemary is the herb of Remembrance, Protection and Love. It provides good luck, protection, and purification. One name for rosemary is “Elfinplant”- it is magical!
The two together in a smudge provides powerful protection as well as uplifting spirits. It also smells divine!
Clear quartz helps to elevate your consciousness and bring clarity into your life. It is clear light, cleansing and purifying energy fields. The CRYSTAL SMUDGE is an original concept by San Aset, and she has been creating these for friends and family for almost 20 years. These smudges create an energy unlike any other smudge and have been used at births, weddings, holidays and in memorial services.
Each smudge is different and the pictures here represent how they look. We don’t have pre-made smudges. These are made carefully, with positive intention, and blessed with loving nature as well as being supercharged. These are actual pictures of the Bast House and smudges in the process of being created. Each smudge and all the crystals have been blessed in the Bast House temple by Ankh-sen-Aset, priestess and Reiki master (Mistress), see picture. Bast (also known as Bastet) is the ancient Egyptian Goddess of protection and cats. Re, our Mau Cat, is meditating in the Bast House, with happy cat thoughts.
