Mugwort is also known as Dream Weed. Mugwort is traditionally associated with dreams and divination. To use a smudge stick light the end, gently blow out the flame when you feel it's good and lit. Slowly wave the herb bundle in circular motions as you move around the room, person, or object. Use a fire safe dish to catch any fallen ash. When you are done extinguish your herb bundle by tamping it in a fire safe bowl. Also known as black sage. String to bind mugwort smudge sticks may differ. Black Sage is also known as Mugwort sage is found in the mountains of the West Coast from California north through British Columbia. It is renowned as a smudging herb for its subtle, sweet scent and dream inducing qualities. This sage is used for magic purposes in ritual practices, house cleansing, negativity removal and protection. Mugwort is used to boost mood, support women's health, relive pain, aids in healthy digestion, aids in sleep, and dreams. Mugwort smudge sticks are used for lucid dream, divination, psychic awareness and protection during astral travel. Whenever you need to work on psychic awareness, inner healing, access your inner-self, clear psychic energy or a Depp spiritual cleansing, black sage (Mugwort) can be of great help. In my opinion, when something stronger than White sage is needed, Mugwort is the best ally.
As with all smudges, sacred incense resins, herbs & wood, exercise caution when lighting and burning. Always use a heat proof container that is placed on a nonflammable surface and always keep away from children, pets and flammable items.
