Our Seasonal Autumn Smudge will be available mid-September through December (because it sells fast). Our formula here at Elder Mountain is locally hand collected and dried seasonally all summer in small batches. Each bag of nature’s natural herbs and wild flowers have been hand picked in the mountains, on our land and on hikes, cured and dried to enrich your prayer rites, altar work, clearing negativity in spaces, dreaming purification smudges or your magical soul. Each one is Water and Moon Charmed in the Slavic Tradition on the full moon for a little extra energy.

Each year we have different offerings,
depending upon the season of collecting:

1 Folk Smudge
2 Smudge Sticks
