How to burn a smudge wand safely:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not burn the flowers in the flower wands, only burn the sage for the burning ritual. Some flowers used are preserved and not meant for burning. If you are confused as to what part of the wand is the sage, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hold the smudge at a 45-degree angle, light the tips of the sage, gently blow out the flame as soon as you see it so that you see orange embers only, not a flame.
Continue this process till you have reached your desired smoke strength. Then you can start the process of clearing your space. Waft the smoke around, do this in a clockwise circle in each corner of your room. Always burn on or over a heat resistant surface, within sight and out of the reach of children and pets. Avoid drafts. Handle with care.
leave a window open before, during, and after smudging. This allows smoke to escape. Allow the ash to collect in a ceramic bowl as you go.
Never leave a burning smudge unattended. When finished , Make sure they are completely extinguished. You can do this by dabbing the lit end into a small bowl of sand or a little water. Once it's completely put out, store it in a safe, dry place out of the direct sun. You can use them multiple times.

How to care for:
Take your smudge stick out of the packaging as soon as they arrive to you. Place them in an open basket where they can get plenty of fresh air. Keep them out of direct sunlight. Avoid keeping smudges in rooms with high humidity (Example: Garage, Laundry, Dryer, Air-con etc). As they are real dry flowers, colour may slightly fade as the time goes by. They also shrink over time and may need retightening. If taken care well, your smudge stick will last months looking absolutely beautiful.
