Smudging is an ancient practice used by witches and Native Americans. Traditionally, the burning of herbs is used for cleansing and purification before sacred ritual. A wonderful blending of sacred white sage and dragon's blood resin, mingling two of the most popular fragrances within magical practice into a powerful ritual tool. Many people don't know that dragon's blood is actually a fragrant resin of old-growth, old-world trees from India and Sumatra. Its natural red pigment and distinct earthy fragrance have made it sought-after by incense makers, perfumers, and traditional dye-makers since time immemorial, and many preserved first-hand accounts and records indicate it was substantially traded along the Silk Road during antiquity.
