I love using natural ingredients in my diys.
Autumn is the perfect time for collecting materials for winter diys. In this little project you could use about anything with a good fragrance. Smudge sticks were traditionally used to cleanse rooms/houses from negative energies. I simply use them as room scent (and if they remove bad energies, thats a bonus :)
Step 1: Materials
Step 2: How To:
Gather your herbs/flowers and make little bundles.
Wrap the twine around the herbs. Tie the twine tightly, as the bundle will shrink when the herbs dry.
I used lavender, lemongrass, rosemary and cinnamon in my smudge sticks.
Other herbs that works great is; lemon balm, mint, thyme and eucalyptus.
Dry the smudge sticks for at least two weeks
Light the smudge sticks on a fireproof underlay.
(Never leave fire/smoke unattended)
Fill your home with lovely fragrances!
