The smudge stick introduces an lavender smell to the traditional art of smudging and the sage is used for healing - combined together the smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. Sage is used to 'wash off' the outside world when one enters ceremony or other sacred space. Lavendar is native of Europe and is often used for invitation of the spirits.
