Sprays and Soy Candles

Cedaring, Smudge Spritz, Sweat Lodge Sage, Buffalo Grass, NDN perfume (fresh)

In each bottle, Kathy has captured the essence of the plants American Indians use, based with witch hazel into each of my Sprays and Candles. These multi-purpose sprays, diffuser ready and candles scents will bring back memories, memories I have known all my life, botanicals that American Indians use, whether it be from celebrations, ceremonies, or just personal praying times, these aromas are calming, relaxing, will bring you back, ground you. Spray to be danced in, not a localized spray. Skin contact is ok (Witch hazel is an astringent).

·      Smudge Spritz: Protection and Dispel Negative Energy

·      Sweat Lodge: Positivity

·      Buffalo Grass: Sacred, Dispel Negative Energy

·      NDN (Indian) Perfume (fresh): Protection, also used as a smell good, made into (potpourri sachets) fresh means freshly picked.
