The smell of Cedar is woodsy and fresh. It recalls ancient forests, and invokes their protection and wisdom. Cedar smudges carry a medicine of protection. Cedar is often used to cleanse a home or apartment when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influences. Along with Rosemary and White Sage, Cedar is one of the most aggressively cleansing smudges you can choose. This 1/2 oz bag of loose cedar clusters is perfect for a variety of smudging uses.
