How to choose a crystal for your incense?

Apr 26 2022

The ancestral practice of sahumo connects the world of plants with spirituality, a sacred ancestral ritual in many ancient shamanic cultures, religious and magical ceremonies of all times and traditions.⁣

What are incense sticks?

A sahumerio is a bunch of one or more sacred aromatic plants , such as sage, rosemary, lavender, rue, mint or even cinnamon. Its aromas will give you a sense of peace and good energy. This, you can combine with the power of each crystal or gem.

This smoke with the smell of nature purifies your energy and that of any room. Depending on the base you use to smudge, the final purpose will be one or the other.

Sahumar brings us closer to the divine, to our origins, to transcend.

What happens when we join a gem or crystal to the incense?

When we unite the kingdom of plants with the kingdom of minerals, magic is created. To the qualities of the plant are added the powers of the crystal and its power is amplified. This allows us to create a ritual with a double purpose; this helps us to work deeper on our intentions and desires.

In addition, it has been seen that rosemary incense enhances the power of any crystal : it is a great ally when working with gems and stones.

What are the benefits of sahumar with a crystal?

Thus, the benefits of smudging with a crystal are the following:

  • Purify the energy of your aura, home or space
  • Creates a very powerful synergy to heal emotional issues
  • Connects you with your essence and with the Earth
  • Relax your mind and speed up the inner healing process
