STASH's smudge sticks come from a family who lives at the Taos Pueblo. The income that the gathering and hand-wrapping of local sage provides to this family is crucial to them. They humbly ask that I tell everyone who buys one from me that each smudge stick is "made with a prayer."
Smudging has been used for thousands of years in cultures far beyond American Indian, including as far away as Japan. The ritual and benefits belong to all of the human race.
