Burning InstructionsBurning Instructions
Hold the smudge stick over an open flame, tilting the end down at a 45 degree angle. Once lit, let the wood burn visibly for approximately 20 seconds, relighting as necessary.
Blow out the Smudge stick and allow to smolder. If it is difficult to light we recommend untying the string and unraveling it a little bit. Sometimes the sage bundle can be tight and doesn’t leave much room for oxygen to ignite the flame.
