Our Sanctuary Priestess has created smaller VEGAN Smudge Kits which feature a UNIQUE Manzanita burl stand, measuring about 3 inches (the shapes vary as each of these are one of a kind), quartz crystals, and a blessed Crystal smudge stick. Depending on the season, the smudge stick may be lavender, rosemary, cedar, or juniper, or a combination of two or more herbs.
The burl comes from Eastwood’s Manzanita trees which are well known for their 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 and has been laying out in nature.
The manzanita burl is finished with all natural plant based lacquer.
Manzanita burl is the perfect wood for a smudge stand due to its fire resistant properties. In fact Manzanita Burl has been used to make pipes.
(Abalone is an animal and it is endangered! Therefore we do not believe in using abalone shells for smudging. Furthermore – the same thing goes for eagle feathers!)
We include with the Manzanita burl stand, one of our Cedar & Rosemary Smudge Sticks 4-5 inches.Ancient Egyptians prized Cedar and used it in their incense and offering ceremonies. The smoke of burning cedar is said to attract good spirits and eliminate negative energy.Embedded Within each of these smudges is a quartz crystal – Imagine how powerful this is!
The CRYSTAL SMUDGE is an original concept by Ankh-sen-Aset, and she has been creating these for friends and family for almost 20 years.
Clear quartz helps to elevate your consciousness and bring clarity into your life. It is clear light, cleansing and purifying energy fields.
All of our Smudges are handmade and blessed by Ankh-sen-Aset, Iseum priestess, artisan and Reiki mistress. The lavender and other herbs are grown on our Sanctuary.
The burls are harvested, trimmed, cleaned and polished – lovingly – by our devotees and Iseum artisans.
Please note that each Manzanita burl stand is UNIQUE, one of a kind. The picture shows an example.
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, the lavender field, 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).
