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 :)

Gather your herbs/flowers and make little bundles.

Other herbs that works great is; lemon balm, mint, thyme and eucalyptus.

Dry the smudge sticks for at least two weeks
