Large Mugwort (Black Sage) Smudge Stick - $25 EACH - average length 23cm
Mugwort is considered a sacred herb of Artemis, the Greek goddess of the moon, the hunt, and chastity. Because of this the plant is also associated with the Moon and young women. So when you want to cleanse the atmosphere of your space and need something super-heavy-duty, beyond normal white sage smudging, Mugwort is perfect.
Black Sage, a variety of sage known as Salvia mellifera, is the most common sage in California and can reach up to 6 feet in height. It is used to encourage dreams and visions and can be used for protection during astral travel or divination.
Clean your house, declutter and then light the smudge stick and waft it about, as if cleansing the air. It is instantly effective. Mugwort is associated with psychic powers in general, and is often burned before crystal ball gazing and other forms of divination, and used for astral projection.
Mugwort Smudge is also used for protection, by hanging the plant over doorways either in whole branches or crushing the leaves and flowers to put in a sachet, often along with other herbs.
