Each smudge is different and the pictures here represent how they look. These are made to order and fresh, 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. 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.
