Cedar smudge sticks have been used for centuries in rituals and cleansing ceremonies. It's best known for it's power to purify places, objects and people. Cedar is best known for it's ability to attract good spirits and eliminate negative energy. In Native American tradition it was used to carry prayers to the creator.
Why we use and carry locally, sustainably sourced cedar:
The tree used for the palo santo sticks is called Bursera graveolens. This tree thrives in tropical dry forests from Mexico to Peru, in areas that undergo severe droughts for up to seven months at a time. Because these forests have such extreme dry seasons, they are particularly vulnerable to soil erosion if the mix of flora and fauna is compromised due to over-harvesting or clear-cutting. “Only 5 to 10 percent of dry tropical forests are still intact around the world,” Susan Leopold, PhD
