Here is a newly created Cedar Crystal Smudge Kit featuring a natural Manzanita Burl art stand.
This kit includes an artisan created manzanita burl stand (similar but not identical to the one in the picture) and an Egyptian Cedar Smudge (5 inches) with quartz crystals.
The manzanita burl stand is quite organic, natural, about 3 inches by 3 inches and finished with many layers of all natural Tung Oil and citrus based finish.
The burl came from an Eastwood’s Manzanitas which is well known for its unique grain and vibrant spectrum of color. These burls are the product of severe weather as well as brush clearing near our mountain Sanctuary. We retrieve the manzanita that has fallen, laying out in nature.
These are VEGAN in that no animal product of any sort is involved with our kits. The manzanita burl is finished with many layers of natural Tung Oil and citrus based finish.
The manzanita stand has a life of its own ad can be used for smudges and also as a stand to hold a small art piece, porcelain, vase with flowers, or perhaps a crystal rock garden?
In Ancient Egypt, incense provided the embodiment of life and an aromatic manifestation of the gods. The Pharaohs cultivated Cedar incense trees and imported expensive resins to satisfy the needs of Egypt’s prolific temples and tombs.The smoke of burning incense cedar is said to attract good spirits and eliminate negative energies.
Within the blessed smudge stick is a supercharged Quartz Crystal – imagine how powerful this is!
All of our Smudges are hand picked and handmade by a Ankh-sen-Aset, an Iseum priestess, artisan and Reiki mistress. The cedar, lavender and other herbs are grown on our Sanctuary.
The burls are harvested, trimmed, cleaned and polished – lovingly – by our devotees and Iseum artisans.
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 a huge inventory of pre-made smudges. And each manzanita burl stand is UNIQUE, one of a kind. All of our Iseum Sanctuary ceremonial items are made with great care, positive intention, and blessed with loving nature.
These are actual pictures of the Bast House Temple and smudges in the process of being created. Each smudge and all the crystals have been blessed in the Bast House by Ankh-sen-Aset (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.
