MUGWORT BURNING BUNDLES
Ingredients: Mugwort. That’s it fam!
Locally foraged Mugwort hand rolled to create a clearing, soothing burning bundle.
Use: Light the end of the bundle until it catches flame. Allow to burn for a short time, until the bundle begins to glow beneath the flame. Blow it out, then let the smoke waft around the room / space. The bundle can be set down on a dish on your alter or mantle to burn out naturally, or for a more active smoke cleanse walk the bundle around the space you want to make new again. Some people imagine white light, some people just let the smoke do its work – I like to actively tell whatever is clogging up my space to get the fuck out – but I’m a shouty witch. Each to their own.
PS don’t call it smudging, unless you’re of Native American descent. Celtic / European witches just burn herbs and are mindful of cultural appropriation.
Always do a bit of your own research or talk to an expert before using for medical purposes. Never leave a bundle alight unattended, don’t burn your house down please.
Important Note: Dark Times Apothecary offerings are small tokens to help you feel like you have some control, or power in these times where lets be honest – none of us feel like we do. They are intented to help you feel less lost, less alone – more grounded and focussed in your own life, time, situation. These are not intented to replace actual healthcare (I am not currently a trained professional), they are intented to be coping mechanisms to help you get through the day. Also they smell nice.
About Us: All Dark Times Apothecary products are made in very small batches from herbs grown, foraged or carefully selected by me, Dianne Tanner. My knowledge comes from extensive learning and research, or was handed down to me through my family and upbringing in rural New Zealand (via ancestors in England and Scotland). I follow a loose Pagan-Witch path, learning with the seasons and finding things that help me cope with the ever-increasingly difficult times we live in. These are the offerings I am sharing here with you, in the hope that they give you some tools to cope as well. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
