I used safe herbs that have meaning to me to make my smudge. I used pineapple sage, mint in flower, rosemary,lemon balm, fennel in flower, and since my lavender did not make it through the heat I added a few dried lavender flowers tucked into the smudge. I wrapped it with jute because that is what I had handy. I hung it to dry on my Mother shelf. We will see how it works once it is dry. It isn't pretty but it will remind me of this point in my life when I use it.
