Has been known to help release pain stored in the heart chakra.
For thousands of years people all over the world have been using smoke and smudging for many purposes. This is done by lighting the end of ;the stick and waving it to disperse the fire and letting the smoke billow. We then wave the smudge around the rooms, closets, person or more. We set intentions, release energy that does not serve us and often prayers of blessings to an area or person.
For my native people, we use the stick as a symbol of "Earth", the smoke a the symbol of "wind", the fire is "Fire", and the shell that is sometimes used symbolizes "Water". Whatever you choose, know that you are a true blessing and your love and energy will be the main tool in this process.
Use your smudge as often as needed or just as a beautiful decorative piece.
