Incense Sticks – TRIBAL SOUL SWEETGRASS & CEDAR 15g
This stunning range of handmade incense combines the idea of incense sticks with ingredients commonly used in smudging, creating beautifully earthy scents perfect for meditation, yoga, rituals or everyday burning.
Each 15g box contains a unique hand-packaged pouch of sticks (approx 10 sticks / pack), tied with string and embellished with a feather. The sticks are created using the traditional ‘masala’ method of combining ground aromatic ingredients into a paste and hand rolling them around an inner bamboo stick (unlike mass-produced sticks that are ‘dipped’ into harsh chemical fragrances).

Sweetgrass and Cedar are two of the main plants used by Native people, along with Sage and Tobacco. Sweetgrass is the sacred hair of Mother Earth, usually braided in three strands. Once dried, the braid is burned at the beginning of a prayer or ceremony for smudging and purification of the spirit. Cedar, a resinous aromatic tree, is also used for cleansing rituals and healing rites. Native peoples of North America burn Cedar while praying and its smoke is said to attract good spirits and eliminate negative energies. The vanilla-like fragrance of Sweetgrass combines in these sticks with the herbaceous scent of Cedar to protect, purify and bring prosperity.
