All the rain may be causing us problems out on the roads and not so nice to walk the dogs in but it is, as Diana Cooper says, a much needed environmental cleansing process.
The ritual of smudging can be defined as "spiritual house cleaning."
The types of herbage used for smudging are seen as sacred and can vary but White Sage (salvia apiana) is considered one of the best plants to use. It is interesting to note that Salvia comes from the Latin root salvare, which means "to heal".
Other herbs can be used such a sweetgrass also known as Buffalo grass and used for weaving baskets, lavender and cedar.
Sweetgrass is used to attract positive energies. Lavender is used for invoking peace and happiness with restful sleep. Cedar is for blessing and cleansing.
The herbs are wrapped into bundles or burned loose in dishes such as abalone dishes. The smoke is wafted around the person or space with feathers.
Nizhoni now has in Stock Mini Smudge Sticks of West Coast White Sage, Large blended Smudge Sticks with Desert Sage, Sweetgrass and Cedar and Mini Lavender Fields sticks with Lavender, Desert Sage and Cedar.
The Abalone shell dishes are large sized approx 6-7" and come with wooden tripods.

Nizhoni - as of Jan 12th 2013 is under new ownership.
Hello to all of you visiting the Nizhoni blog........
It is a new year and a new stage in the life of Nizhoni.
For the next month or so, on the surface, not so much will change on the site, but gradually I hope to unfold and introduce some new ideas and new pieces of beauty and craftsmanship from our Native American friends. I wish to continue the theme of genuine and authentic to honour the amazing skills, love and respect with which these items are made.
I thank Heidi for creating Nizhoni with such love and care and for being such a nice genuine person to do business with in the selling and handing over of her business.
I hope you will continue to enjoy Nizhoni and the many beauiful pieces of art and crafts on offer.
I thank you for visiting and being patient whilst any updates occur and for any prospective purchasers....business is open as normal:-)
May you all have a Happy New Year 2013.
