For thousands of years people have been burning herbs and resins in order to conjure forces from the beyond. This instinctive act has been incorporated in complex rituals or done alone. Hence smudging eventually blended with the art of alchemy creating the Tradition of Smudging. Let’s leave your instinct alone to drag you into this Smudging Test. What does your soul need?
Not all herbs are the same. According to the Magical tradition, each herb belongs to a certain element, planet and spirit hence has a distinctive magical attribute. Moreover, many witches believe that is there is a certain totem – guardian spirit for every animal, so does for herbs! In other words every time you use an herb, you actually summon the forces of the spirit.
But many times we are drawn by a certain Crystal or Herb without knowing exactly why this is happening. Witches believe that this happens because our spirit is in contact with the spirits of the herbs.
So what did you pick?
1. Spirit of Rosemary
If you have chosen the first bundle this is the bundle of Rosemary, the ‘dew of the sea’. This is the herb used by witches to rejuvenate and heal. As this is a sacred herb of Aphrodite it is drenched with amazing qualities.
Ritualists used it for its amazing ability to cleanse and rejuvenate the mind and the aura of the afflicted person. Furthermore, it can significantly help in home cleansing and purification rituals. In addition, along with myrrh and frankincense it can be burned as a preparation for any major magical Ritual or Ceremony.

2. Spirit of Mugwort
If you have choses the second bundle then this is the bundle of Mugwort then Nature speaks pretty clear to you. Healing is what is needed right now. If there is one herb more associated with this ability, then it’s mugwort. You should know that for thousands of years, this herb has been used to heal and unblock. Mugwort is a Master plant ally for all witches. She thrives in the liminal spaces. Often found on the sides of roads or the edges of fields. She has many magical properties, especially for women, and is the plant to work with during all female rites of passage; maiden, mother, crone.

3. Spirit of Cinnamon
If you have chosen this herb, then Rebirth is what’s needed right now in you. Cinnamon (from the Greek word κιννάμωμο) is the herb which is strongly associated with Fire. From ancient Egypt to Chine, this herb was used in praising deities of Fire and Sun, and one of my personal favourites. Moreover, it was and is still used to summon the Phoenix, Bennu bird in both Egypt and Greece. Let’s not forget that Phoenix is the soul of Ra, the Sun God. This precious herb was used to summon both. Get some true Cinnamon from our Magical Shop here.

4. Spirit of Sage
If you have chosen Sage then the message is clear. Your mind is full of thoughts and feelings that you need to get rid of. The spirit of Sage talks about cleansing your aura and your mind and take back control in your hands.
Probably the most popular from all magical smudges. Sage leaves and branches, alone or with other plants, are usually wrapped up together and left to dry. This creates a nice ready to use smudging incense that when lit can be used in purification, cleansing, banishing and healing practices. Alternatively, dry sage leaves can be placed on a charcoal disc for the same purpose. Get some witchy herbal blends and formulas from our MagicalShop here.
