A trio of wildcrafted sage smudging sticks. Cedar (Cedrus) is from the foliage of cedar trees, and has a fresh and woodsy aroma. White sage (Salvia apiana) is traditionally known for its sweet fragrance and slightly stringent aroma. Blue sage (Artemisia polish castle) has a fresh, light fragrance similar to lavender, and its aroma is not quite as strong as White sage. The smudging practice is often used in ceremonies or rituals for cleansing the energetic field, protection, or purification.
