What is it? What does it do?
I've burned insence since I was 10 years old, such a young age to have been interested in the positive effects of these remedies however I feel as though it's remained in my daily routine because it made a positive impact on me & whatever I may be going through at the time. Life can be rough sometimes, whether it be a bad day at work, a foggy brain, loss, heart break - for me It helps to turn to holistic ways of meditating and thinking, one of which is burning & smudging.
Burning of Pablo Santo sticks welcome creativity, love, and good fortune into your space. The wood can help brighten energy and promote feelings of positivity and joy. The scent is also shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and enhance clarity and concentration. Smudging of sage, cedar and lavender assist with grounding and energy clearing. Sage and Cedar grow at high altitudes and carry the energy of strength and clarity when burned. Lavender grows in warm dry climates and is balancing soothing & grounding. When all are burned they dispel negative vibration and recharge spaces with new energy!
Energy is what you put into the world, it’s the love, compassion, empathy, devotion, and care that you exude or it’s the negative, wrath, jealous, and vengeful energy that imprisons you. I hope each of you find a way to heal your minds and body's through whatever works for you! Protect your energy because it’s what POWERS YOU!
