for smudging you need a wand, hense the herb in a stalk bundled together. Directions under notes above. However you can use the herbs in other ways like in steam on a stove, lighting a coal and adding the herbs to smolder on the hot coal, In a bonfire (need a lot for that), adding them to a perfume base. adding them to sweet oil and shaking every day for a week then straining and using as anointing oil.

    Sweetgrass and sage are common here, especially among the tribal people. I love the smell of both!

    Directions on what to do with these spices, not just list them. Do I mix them with mortar and pestil, do I shake them in a bag, grind them, talk to them or what. If they are just left to my atmosphere fine.

    Written in the recipe description: "You can make them by hanging your herbs upside down to dry then bundling them together you just tie them tight and light one end and let it smolder."

    Are you saying that the only way to use this information is to have the WHOLE herb/spices,stem & all? Otherwise, my question is the same as Carole's.
