Stonebridge Imports has partnered with local artisans and suppliers to offer our community an eagerly-awaited range of products (specifically for smoke cleansing rituals). Below is a description of some of them and how they are created and produced.
Our herb collection is now supplied to us by our exclusive distributor, Shawn, who harvests and sells his organic herbs from his local farm in Ontario.
These?? plants include sage, sweetgrass, cedar, lavender, mugwort, and pine which are bundled securely but not too tight to allow for quicker burning. Shawn's high-quality herbs are pesticide- and herbicide-free so it's guaranteed to be safe and nontoxic.
Properties: Burning these herbs helps promote happiness, positive energy, and calmness in people and environments.
Uses: Preserves your peace and balance and removes pent-up negative energies.
Of course, a smoke cleansing ritual wouldn't be complete without a clam shell and a feather for containing burned herbs and for distributing smoke within a space. These are provided to us by Heather Rulton, the owner of Spirituality In You Healing Center in London, ON.
