As part of the spiritual cleansing protocol we recommend to most of our clients you will need to source some supplies. We always recommend supporting your local businesses. Look at local metaphysical supply shops. They will usually have some of all of these supplies in stock.
For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to have a local supply shop, you can easily order what you need online. We are NOT affiliated with these vendors and make no $ from these sales. We present these links simply for convenience.
– = Smudge Sticks = –
How many do I get?: No matter which of the recommended vendors you choose below, we recommend laying in a supply of 4-5 sticks. Depending on the size of your house and the length of your cleansing ritual you could use a whole stick per cleansing session (usually get at least 2 uses per sick) and you’ll likely be cleansing your space at least weekly for a while.
Desert Sage Sticks – Ebay is the best source for these. We recommend desert sage over white sage, just because it smells so much better than white sage. Make sure you order enough to cover cleansing rituals daily for at least a week, planning on 1/2 a stick per apartment or small house per cleaning. A large home can easily use 1 stick per ritual.
– = Trinity Incense Blend = –
This is our signature time-tested incense blend used in very specific situations. You really only need to make this if specifically advised to do so. It is monumental overkill for most situations.
We recommend ordering the smallest increment each (currently 4oz) of Copal, Frankincense and Myrrh which will total 12 oz of finished incense. This will last a LONG TIME, most likely years.
To make this blend you need 1 part each of Copal, Frankincense and Myrrh. You order the components individually and blend them by hand and then burn on a charcoal disk. BUY THE RESIN… NOT THE OIL / LIQUID.
If you can’t find the powdered format, you can crush the chunks with a ziplock bag and a hammer fairly easily. Ideally it all needs to be powered and mixed thoroughly in equal parts. These can also be ordered cheaply on ebay, just make sure you’re buying the powdered form, not the liquid extracts. The liquids don’t work well at creating smoke with charcoal, but can be used for blessing windows/doors/walls, etc..
You will need to burn this mixture on charcoal disks. You can buy sleeves of charcoal through Mountain Rose Herbs here, but you’ll get a much better deal ordering a box of coals through ebay. These are also sold at some smoke and hookah supply stores fairly cheap. If you have an option get the 40mm size over the 33mm disks.
