Please note: These smoke cleansing bundles are each handmade. This means each is unique in size. I've done my best to measure and approximate sizes. Using my intuition I will select one for you.
Bundles with Cedar are approximately 9 -11 1/2 inches in length and 4 1/2 -5 1/2 around.
Herbal bundles (without Cedar) are approximately 10-12 inches in length and 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 around.
Most of the plants come from my garden, with the exception of Rose. The rose I use is certified organic and is from a reputable sustainable source. We have not used any non-organic pesticides or herbacides in our garden for 20 years. The cedar I use comes from family property outside of town. Ideally, we do our best to collect fallen branches after storms. If this is not possible, I follow much of the same protocol that I use with the plants in my garden (below). We are are always careful not to overharvest or unnecessarily harm the tree.
I am mindful of my harvesting practices because it is important for me to build relationships with the plants I care for. In the mornings in the summer, I can be found watering the plants and singing to them. Before cutting any plants I take the time to connect with them and ask permission first. There are days they say NO and I respect that. I only harvest when the plants are willing to be of service. When they say YES, I sing to them and thank them with deep gratitude from my heart. I'm always sure to leave around half of the flowering plants uncut for the bees to enjoy. This means that I do not harvest as much as I could, so quantities of smoke cleansing bundles are limited. Once I sell out, we have to wait until the next season. After the plants have been collected, I sit with them in ceremony while I bundle them.
