1 Burning white sage leaves and smelling the memories of earth and soil and paws running over soft, loose soil in the scent.

2 Burning sage and cedar leaves and letting the sweet fragrance of the scents go deep into me, and feeling both a sense of earth and air.

3 Feeling calmer from both scents.

4 Thanking the white sage plant in my room for its family’s/relative’s contribution to the smudge stick and loose leaves I have and use.

5 Thanking the smudge sticks for their help.
