Smudge Sticks 


I decided to try my hand at making smudge sticks.

I gathered some sage and some rosemary from the garden…


So I grabbed a handful and tied the ends together with some embroidery thread.



Then I wound the long ends of the thread as tightly as I could up and back down the bundle, knotting the two ends together.


I made some with plain sage and some sage and rosemary mixed together.


Then they needed to be hung up to dry. I had to find a spot to hang them where they got plenty of airflow around them but the cats couldn’t get to them, which challenged me a bit.

Finally I realised the chandelier in the kitchen was ideal!


A week later they were dry and ready to use!
