Incense, Smudge & Herbs
A range of incense, smudge and resins for shamanic practice, spiritual use or for use purely
for a pleasant fragrance in the home or therapy centre.
Incense includes Fair Trade Tibetan incense from Nepal. Tibetan incense is a common style of incense used in Tibet, Northern parts of Nepal and Bhutan. Forming an important part of Tibetan culture, these incenses are usually made from ancient recipes and unlike other incenses do not have a stick inside.
For those looking for an ethical source of stick incense we have Ancient Wisdom’s Freedom Incense. The folk at Ancient Wisdom in Sheffield put their heads and hearts together with the incense makers of Bangalore to come up with the Freedom Incense range. The idea is to give a little from each item sold directly back to the workers who make that product in India, For example 10p from the sale of a packet of Incense sold here in the UK can go directly to incense packers in Bangalore.Smudge, Herbs and Resins
Our copal resin bundle is Fair Trade from Guatemala; abalone shells are sustainable produce from South Africa and our US smudge and herb products come from either Juniper Ridge or Fluorescent Ranch. Our Scottish smudge is handmade by shamanic craftworker, Kai Seidr. Based in Inverness Kai makes his smudge from ethically sourced grown or foraged plants and fungi.
Juniper Ridge started at a farmers market in Berkeley, California in 1998. Everything they grow and make comes from the mountains or the deserts of western USA. All of their produce is sustainably and responsibly harvested from the wild and they never kill the plants they harvest, trimming sage at the green stem above the woody section, meaning two or three new clusters appear the following year where they harvested one. Juniper Ridge donates 10% of their profits to defending western wildernesses.
Fluorescent Palo Santo products are harvested in a traditional and ecological way and all plants that have been used are harvested through a sustainable, natural process.
Liquid smudge provides a great alternative to a smudge stick for those who react negatively to smoke or for use in areas where smoke is not allowed. Simply spray once into the air for use when appropriate for shamanic work, ceremony and ritual, house and space cleansing etc. For personal smudging spray into the air and step into the spray.
Our White Sage Liquid Smudge Spray comes from New Mexico, USA via an ethical importer. White Sage is used to clean and purify and also ideal for
use in prayer or when wanting to build a spiritual connection.
