GemSpot for Ammonite

On April 22, 2016, in Crystals, Essential Guide to Crystals, Gem Spot, by MargaretAnnLembo

GemSpot for Ammonite

ammonite-3The energy of this beauty holds the vibration of inner connection and gratitude. Ammonite is a fossil from an extinct group of invertebrate marine animals. The spiraling structure of this fossil provides a tool for spiraling into the center of your own consciousness. Focus on this fossil while using tools for awareness like dream work, meditation, spiral dance, and walking a labyrinth or a medicine wheel.

Ammonite assists you in reaching in to examine the deeper recesses of your mind. Gaze at this fossil and follow the spirals to encourage your mind to go within to find answers, uncover truths, and deepen your connection with your own consciousness. It is helpful for resolving problems or issues by getting to the center of the challenge.

Ammonite fossils are usually found as spiral (ram horned)shaped calcite fossilized shells. Named for the ram’s horns, ammonite assists you when it is necessary to just ram ahead and delve into the past to uncover the source of emotional trauma. With this fossil on hand, bring the challenge into the light, observe it, and allow the light to transform and transmute stuck emotions and feelings that hold you back from achieving your full potential.

This stone signals a time to stop, go within and allow yourself to step into the deep recesses of your mind and emotions to uncover the truth. It can be helpful to go to the ocean or a body of water to take the time to reflect.

Affirm: All the answers lie within me waiting for me to acknowledge them. Ancient knowledge and wisdom are available to me when I go within. I recall my dreams when I wake and use them as tools to help guide me in my waking life.

I am blessed with positive thought, love, abundance, and respect. In retrospect, I realize I have had amazing mentors. My parents, my sister, and a family friend – along with positive experiences in private schools – shaped my ability to see the good in everything and find the positive perspectives. I was taught at a very young age that what you think about becomes reality. In addition, the belief and truth that I can do and become anything is engrained into my consciousness. I know that all I have to do is try. And that is how I live my life – with love, joy, enthusiasm. I know anything is possible. I embrace and practice the magic of believing.

Throughout my career life, which started in mortgage banking, I have practiced these foundational principles of positive thought to create success and happiness. I used the power of color, coupled with intention, in my corporate life. I dressed with consciousness using a red outfit on days I needed more power or a blue blouse on a day I needed inner peace. I practiced color therapy in my daily life and still do! As my days as a banker drew to a close due to the stock market crash of 1987, I had already invested in a small business venture purchasing crystals and gemstones from Arkansas, the quartz capital of the United States.

This simple step of participating in the small business of buying and selling quartz catapulted me into the birth of my ever expanding business, The Crystal Garden, established in 1988. When I created this store my intention was to provide a space where people could shop but more importantly feel better and peaceful because of their visit. I wanted it to smell good, feel good and emanate love and well-being. Mission accomplished! The Crystal Garden has grown and expanded to include a wholesale division for my aromatherapy products. As an aromatherapist and spiritual practitioner, I am receive aromatherapy formulas and recipes from the Divine. They also include crystal tinctures, flower essences, Holy Waters, and Sacred Site essences.

In addition to the great vibes of my retail store and spiritual center, The Crystal Garden is a mecca for people to find sparkling gemstones, essential oils, books, events and many more spiritual treasures all which are supportive on all levels - physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

For close to three decades, I have been immersed in the world of gemstones, color and essential oils. I offer what I have learned through my speaking engagements, workshops, webinars, meditation CDs and books.

I am a Llewellyn author of award winning Chakra Awakening: Transform Your Reality Using Crystals, Color, Aromatherapy and the Power of Positive Thought (2011) and The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones (2013). The Essential Guide to Aromatherapy and Vibrational Healing (2016)

My first book, Chakra Awakening, is now in 6 languages. It was because of a very kind well-known author, Ted Andrews, that the doors to Llewellyn Worldwide opened. Thanks to his introduction, I have become one of their A-List authors. Another publication is in production to be released in November 2016. More on that soon. It is an honor and a privilege to be a Llewellyn Author!

I self-published The Angel Gemstone Oracle Cards (2011.) These cards were a perfect tool for divination, stone identification and definitions as well as an affirmation deck. It is still available smart phone app! This deck sold so well that Findhorn Press published it in 2013 as The Angels and Gemstone Guardians Cards. It has been transformed and updated with new photos and beautiful graphic design by Richard Crookes.

Synchronicity introduced me to Findhorn Press. As a bookseller I had a conversation with the US Sales Rep for Findhorn and the conversation turned toward asking his advice about publishers who might be interested in my Young Readers version of Chakra Awakening.

Color Your Life with Crystals: Your First Guide to Crystals, Colors and Chakras (Earthdancer – an imprint of Findhorn Press. 2013) was born from the desire to share the magic of believing, the power of color and crystals with young readers. I learned these principles and truths at a very young age and it has helped mold me into who I am today. This book fills a need for children of all ages. I remember a moment in time when a young boy came to me while he was shopping with his grandmother. He held up a little book from a divination deck and said, “Is this book on crystals for a boy my age?” I looked at the book and realized that is was not and, of course, immediately searched to find him a book to satisfy his inquiry. When I didn’t find any type of book for him, I realized that I must provide this book on positive thought, colors, chakras and crystals for the children of our world.

I am so grateful to be counted among the Findhorn Press authors. It is an honor and a privilege.

Now, my newest deck Archangels and Gemstone Guardians Cards (2016) features 11 Archangels with 4 Gemstone Cards for each totally 44 cards for messages, inspiration, Divine guidance and positive affirmations.

Findhorn Press has published two of my spoken audio publications – Chakra Balancing Crystal Alignment and Cord Cutting: Releasing the Energetic Ties of Your Past – available on CD and MP3.

And . . . wait there’s more! I self-published seven spoken audio publications available in CD format and as an MP3 download. They are primarily meditations and positive thought reminders. Here’s the list:
Color Meditation
Meet Your Master Guide
Open Your Heart to Love
Short Meditations for Busy People

Think Good Thoughts: Positive Affirmations for Everyday Living

I am grateful to know my life’s purpose and that I have the venue to provide this service to the world. I am grateful for the physical structure of The Crystal Garden and the 27 plus years at 2610 North Federal Highway in Boynton Beach, FL.




Financial Success: Attracting Abundance

By Margaret Ann Lembo

As we enter this New Year, it’s a great time for contemplation and reflection on how we want our life to move forward. Abundance and lack are a choice. Health and illness are often a choice as well. How quickly we recover from life’s challenges is also always up to us. Here are some thought to help you with attracting financial success as we step forward into this New Year.

Letting Go of Lack: Understanding Your Money Blueprint

How do you perceive abundance? Pay attention to your thoughts, use the tool of self-observations, install word patrol into your consciousness, and learn to reframe limiting thought patterns.

Knowing what you want

You have to know what you want in order to create it.  The shift from focusing on what you don’t want to what you do want must take place to create the commitment to create abundance.

Make a list and be as specific as you can. For example for income - How much can you imagine yourself making? Write down your personal annual income. Set your intentions high. Try not to limit what you write down because you never know what opportunities will arise!

Ask yourself: “How much time, energy and commitment am I willing to give to the creation of these goals?”  Then you will have a clearer realization of whether or not it’s important enough to put onto the list. I usually tend to set my goals high and reach for the stars. You know there is an expression, "if you shoot for the moon, at least you'll end up among the stars."

Setting your goals

What do you love to do? How much time do you spend doing the things you love. Make a date with yourself to let yourself decide how you will spend your days and then take the following steps to help you create your reality.

  • Start by asking for things that you can imagine yourself having or achieving.
  • Expand your consciousness and your imagination – think bigger!
  • Make the list and work the list
  • Create a Vision Journal


The value of written goals

It has been said many ways and many times that if you write it down you make it happen. You will also find profound results if you state your intentions and goals aloud to a close friend or trustworthy colleague. In short order you will attract what you set forth into the ethers! Here are a few key points to contemplate.

  • Definitive plans produce definitive results.
  • Written goals and objectives create crystal clear intentions that you will not forget.
  • Goals that are written serve as a yardstick of progress.
  • Writing crystallizes thought and thought motivates action.
  • Writing stimulates visualization.


The value of affirmations

Affirmations work according to the law of displacement. It is a tool of self-talk, self-suggestion, auto-suggestion, and self-commands. An affirmation is a positive declaration that describes what you want to be, what you want to have, or how you want to live your life.

I have a millionaire mind!

I am self-confident and deserve all my heart’s desires.

I am always in the right place at the right time.

I magnetize the people, places and situations into my life that assist me with my goals and objectives.

I am always at the right place at the right time.

There is plenty for everyone!

My Dreams come true!

My choices and possibilities are expanding every day.

The universe is safe, abundant and friendly.

I am abundantly provided for.

I do what I love and I know the money will follow

I live my passion

I am an excellent receiver. I receive massive amounts of money.

I allow myself to live and think in unlimited ways.

I create what I want easily

I allow and invite good to come into my life

I earn unlimited income doing what I love.

You tend to draw to yourself that which you set out for yourself. You become precisely what you imagine yourself to be. When your goals are clear, vivid, and written down, they act as a magnetic force to draw you to them.

Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass. – Paul J. Meyer

Aromatherapy for the Winter Blues

This is the ‘season’ with quite a bit of hustle and bustle. Nostalgia of times gone by or sadness due to sad memories, loss of a loved one, and dealing with winter can add to the depression, sadness and loneliness. You or your friends and family may need healthy assistance in raising your spirits and to find ways get some relief from the stresses of everyday life.

The Winter Holidays are a time when we are ‘supposed’ to be happy and have fun which adds another pressure to many – the pressure to act happy during a time they are sad or depressed. At the end of the year, many people reflect on what they have achieved or accomplished during the past year and may feel the blues or low self-confidence. Keep this in mind and be gentle with yourself. Also, remember that many people will act or react differently than normal because of sadness or stress that is hidden below the surface. Here are some essential oil blends to help you at this time of year.

Euphoria and Lift Me Up!Euphoria Essential Oil Blend

There are a few essential oil blends that I made specifically with these people in mind. In this post you will learn about two blends – Euphoria and Lift Me Up! All the essential oils used in The Crystal Garden Brand formulas are Medical Grade Oils.

Euphoria Essential Oil Blend has four essential oils that specifically balance and reduce the challenges of anxiety, stress and fear. Inhale Euphoria Essential Oil blend when you feel hysterical or out of balance. Euphoria helps cancel out angry, vindictive, or negative thoughts.

It is very effective to relieve PMS and menopausal symptoms. Use Euphoria essential oil blend to rebalance yourself while you are experiencing hormonal havoc.

This synergistic blend of essential oils reduces blood pressure. If you have low blood pressure, please use it sparingly and through inhalation only. Otherwise, it is very effective to put a few drops into a dollop of moisturizer and massage it into the bottom of your feet. Euphoria can also be used as a sleep aid.

Euphoria is also available as a 2oz spray.

Euphoria Relaxation Spray

Lift Me Up! Essential Oil BlendLift Me Up! Essential Oil Blend

Lift Me Up! also available as Bliss Mist is a floral, mild, rosy, soft, sweet, and woody synergistic essential oil blend that I made created many years ago for a dear friend who was having a hard time. She was feeling emotionally and mentally sad and lacking worthiness. Her self-confidence has diminished for so many reasons.

Lift Me Up! formula and Bliss Mist have the same ingredients – Lift Me Up! is available neat in a 1 dram bottle while Bliss Mist contains the same oils plus water as an aromatic spray.

Bliss Mist - The Crystal Garden Brand Essential Oil Blend

Lift Me Up! essential oil blend to renew your self-confidence. This essential oil blend increases joyfulness and self-esteem and is helpful for relieving the symptoms of depression. It helps to relieve the symptoms of depression and mental illness stemming from mood swings.

In the hustle and bustle of busy holiday days, remember to take the time to nurture yourself even if you have to make an appointment with yourself. Schedule the time to rest, rejuvenate and relax. Create a sacred space using candles, incense, crystals, aromatherapy, flowers or whatever makes you happy and then stop and enjoy it. Open your heart, mind and spirit to all the Love that is and that YOU ARE!





Activating the Grids of Light: Crystal Grids

On November 14, 2015, in Transformation, Travel, by MargaretAnnLembo

Crystal Grids

Crystal grids are simply a much larger bigger-than-life version of a crystal alignment used with the intention of realigning the body of Mother Earth through the activation of the Grids of Light. To create crystal grids use people and crystals to create geometric configurations in conjunction with intention, meditation, guided imagery and prayer.

It has been my experience to create crystal grids at Sacred Sites around the planet. My first grid came to me in the form of a vision around 1991 while I was voice channeling with and for my friend, Melissa. I rarely voice channel in semi-trance yet in that moment in time, I was practicing that gift of voice channeling. The information that came through was received as a vision in my mind’s eye. That first realization of creating crystal grids was revealed at my third eye center in a true clairvoyant fashion. Remember – clairvoyance is the ability to see visions that someday you may need to act upon. I saw myself facilitating a visualization process with a group of people that I brought with me at the pyramid sight of Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Pennisula in Mexico. I had never been there

The vision revealed the specific placement of people at various points within the site. In the vision, I saw the grounds or compound of Chichen Itza, but I didn’t know the magnitude of the vision until I arrived at the site many years later. Everything was exactly how I saw it and I was able to place people and their crystals around the site just as if I had been there.

That vision was around 1992 and it wasn’t until January of 1994 that the first tour to the Yucatan occurred. It was called Ruins and Rituals: Explore the Yucatan Peninsula, a spiritual learning vacation. The interesting part unfolded between 1992 and 1994. In 1992, a client asked me to personally escort him and his family on a spiritual journey in the Four Corners region. The Four Corners is filled with Sacred Sites mostly of the Anasazi, Hopi, Ute and the Dine(Navajo) native cultures.Then I co-facilitated two Sacred Journeys to the Yucatan, one in 1994 and the other in 1995, with a cousin of mine who was an anthropologist.

On these trips we visited and activated the grids of light that extend at Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Dzibilchaltun, cenotes and connected with the records encoded in the glyphs at these sites. We performed the visionary Crystal Grid ceremony at each location.

Starting with Chichen Itza, which is the location of my vision, we activated the grids. I was pleasantly surprised that the site looked extremely similar to my vision even though I hadn’t been there or ever seen pictures of it. I knew exactly where to place everyone.

We all gathered on the Venus Platform which is directly in front of the Temple of Kukulcan. It is speculated that this platforms were used as stages or where rulers may have given public proclamations. While gathered there, I handed out tabular quartz crystals to each of the participants. These same tabular crystals or tabbies went on to be used throughout the Yucatan and on into Peru, the Four Corners region in the U.S. as well as England and France at sacred sites.

Each participant was directed to various positions. I was on the Venus platform directly facing the main pyramid of the Feathered Serpent, Temple of Kukulcan. There were a number of people that climbed to the top of that pyramid, others went to the Temple of the Warriors and others on the top of the Platform of the Jaguars and Eagles. Each person held a tabular quartz crystal, tabbies, specifically designated for planetary grid activation.

I stay on the Venus Platform. With the sound of tingshas, I signaled the start of the activation process.

Everyone had instructions to visualize and imagine that our third eyes, hearts and our crystals were to link up like laser light beams creating a triangular geometric formation. The way were place on the site created triangles if you connected the dots, each of us being a dot and our bodies, heart, mind and crystal created the base of the triangle. The beam of intention is sent out as 2 beams of Love, Light and Well-Being forming a triangle where the point hooks up with the point of other participants sending the same triangular formation.

I sent a very specific crystal with my friend Pam that I knew was a key to activation. That crystal fit perfectly into a slot or opening at the top of that pyramid and she felt the activation take affect. When Pam was on top of the pyramid of Quetzalcoatl, no one was on the top landing while the toning and actual grid activation took place. Other participants also felt inspired to place their crystals on certain spots or into openings within the structure at various times through out this activation process.

During the second visit a year later after the completion of this process. while at Chichen Itza, we performed a group crystal alignment by the Caracol which is one of the most famous structures there. It appears that this structure was used by the Maya as an astronomical observatory. The Caracol has two alignments. The western front aligns with the sunset position at summer solsctice and the northernmost point on the horizon where Venus sets. Venus was revered by the Mayan and Mesoamerica cosmology.

It felt important to open our heart centers at this location based on the western view of Venus from my astrological background. During this meditation I had placed some gemstones on each of the participants. I provided a guided meditation with the crystal alignment. It was a beautiful morning and it was quiet. I did notice that almost everywhere we went throughout the Yucatan that the large groups of tourists arrived after our meditations and ceremonies were complete.

During this meditation and group crystal alignment, we closed our eyes for the meditation. No one was around. We were grateful for the quiet and the privacy. When we opened our eyes about an hour later, there was a big Mayan family who sat near us on the ground. They sat in quiet respectful meditation. It was apparent that they had joined our crystal alignment meditation. Maria’s watch stopped for the hour during this meditation.There was nothing wrong with her watch as it started later again no problem. Just like the moment when Pam was on top of the pyramid of Quetzalcoatl, no one was on the top landing while the toning and actual grid activation took place As soon as we were done, swarms of tourists arrived. And here it happened again as we sat up and started to share our experiences, we realized the large numbers of people walking by us.

At Uxmal the impressive Pyramid of the Magician rises 93 feet with an incredibly steep stairway. I had no interest in climbing this nor did I have any visions where this pyramid needed to be climbed by anyone for the activation process. Thoughtforms included acknowledging its presence within the site yet my visions centered on a ceremony that needed to take place in the Nunnery Quadrangle. This name was given by the Spaniards. This complex was more than likely a residential area. The mosaics on these buildings had many Chaak masks to honor and invoke the energy of rain. There were also many lattices of X-shaped stones which formed double-headed serpent bars. The count of these X-mosiacs coincide with the synodic period of Venus. In other words, using naked eye astronomy, it takes Venus 584 days to complete the cycle of it first appearance as Morning Star, it disappearance and then reappearance as Evening Star, disappearing again and then finally reappearing again as the Morning Star. So why is this important? It was so important to the culture of the land where we stood. If they built buildings to replicate this cycle then there was a reason important enough to make these beautiful buildings mirror what is happening above. As above, so below.

To me, it is important to honor the traditions, culture and heritage of the people whose land we stand in while activating these grids. Although we many not fully comprehend what this ancient culture meant by all of its ceremonies and markings, there is a part of us that is related. Part of the activation process is to gain some understanding and connection, even if just an iota, to help trigger these grids of light.

In this quadrangle, our Sacred Sites group had the whole courtyard to during the meditation and grid activation experience. It made it easier for me to sing and pray aloud with many crystals and feathers abound. It wasn’t until our grid meditation was completed that tourists arrived in massive numbers. Ironically, it felt as if someone somewhere was holding them back and that as soon as we were done it felt as if someone opened the gates to let the crowds through. It felt to me that the guardians of the site who probably were downloading these visions to me were also orchestrating and controlling the crowds that might have been a distraction or prohibited me to feel free to truly do the work. The prohibition would have come only from self imposed self-consciousness which would have limited the ceremonies I facilitated.


At the site of the Temple of the Seven Dolls at Dzibilchaltun, the site obviously showed the openings where the sun shines through at sunrise at the Spring Equinox. Dzibilchaltun, whose name means” writing on the stones,” is located less than 10 miles north of Merida on the way to Progreso and was excavated starting in 1993 when they consolidated four areas at the site. Dzibilchaltun was one of the great urban centers that fluoresced in northern Yucatan before the arrival of the Spaniards. Carbon dating indicates occupation from 350 B.C. to AD 1521.

When the Temple of the Seven Dolls was excavated and restored recently, it was found to be well preserved because another structure was build over it. The Temple of the Seven Dolls is built so that its east and west doorways are exactly in alignment with the sun when it rises on the days of the spring and fall equinox. The doorways on the north and south sides of this temple are placed exactly in alignment with the winter solstice at sunset. The light enters the out right of the south doorway and illuminates the inner edge f the left doorway wall. This phenomenon happens on the summer solstice sunset through the north door.

I found this site to hold extraordinarily high energy and it felt as if the site was still activated when we arrived. Of all the sites we traveled to in the Yucatan, this one somehow felt the most sacred. I perceive that this is a lesser known site relative to the crowds that descend upon Uxmal and Chichen Itza. I was pleased to find the energy in tact and clean.

Almost all of these sites in the Yucatan as well as around the world have buildings, temples, or some type of structure that allow for light to shine through at specific points in time in the calendar. Usually the light shines through an opening at an Equinox, a Solstice or a cross-quarter which is the mid-point between an Equinox and a Solstice. It is my opinion that the light shining through is another avenue for activation of the grids of light, year in and year out all the way around Mother Earth.

Let’s pause here and contemplate time, as time is not really relevant in the bigger scheme of things in a quantum-physics, simultaneous-reality kind of way. You could almost say there is no such thing as time on a galactic level. Think about this and ponder, please. Time is a peculiar thing. Some people wear watches and constantly look at them. Some hurry up to do something or get somewhere, only to wait, and wait, and wait some more, once the task is completed or arrive at our destination. It appears that we are driven by what time something will occur and whether or not we will arrive on time.

Being human you are progressive by nature. You are constantly striving for the next goal, accomplishment, or desire to be fulfilled in your life. There is nothing wrong with that. Yet, perhaps you can observe yourself when you are trying to make that goal or desire manifest. What do you observe? You pray. You light candles. You make manifestation lists. You visualize. You act as if “it” has already occurred in your life.

Aromatherapy Essentials

Aromatherapy Essentials is written for my friends and colleagues who are Retailers and Spa Directors. It's published in Retailing Insight in the October/November 2015 Issue.

Aromatherapy Essentials

The article covers key points like

  • What's in an oil?
  • Shelf life of essential oils
  • Important safety precautions
  • My top 10 best-selling oils and their qualities
  • Cross-selling aromatherapy sidelines (for the retailers reading this)
  • Common carrier oils for topical application of essential oils



I've been playing with essential oils since the 1980s and working with them as an aromatherapist since the late 1990s. Over the years, the hands on experience has helped me develop my "nose." The "nose" of an aromatherapist is important to discern quality of an essential oil and is crucial in blending formulas.

I have my own line of medical grade oils. The Crystal Garden brand oils and aroma-energetic mists are sold throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, the Netherlands, Germany, and the UK.

Fall Equinox: Manifest Dreams with Inner VisionAutumn Fruit

This time of year brings you more in touch with the power of “being” in a passive and receptive state of awareness.

This time of year holds the vibration of the Great Void, also called the Great Mystery, from which all dreams are birthed and reality becomes manifest. Take some time today or within the next few days to establish clearly written goals and intentions for this next quarter of this year. (if you happen to read this at another time of year, please move forward and do this exercise of writing down your dreams anyway.)

The energy of the Autumnal Equinox provides access to the door between worlds and communicate with your ancestors. Use this energy as a tool to help you align with your personal power and courage to grow. This is a time to manifest your dreams!

Using a power animal as an ally adds more energy to the mindfulness.

One animal association is bear. She and her cave teach you that, in certain circumstances, there is more value in doing nothing than in taking action.

Raven is the totem for this time of year and symbolized birth, death, mysticism, and magic. In order to give birth to a new reality we often must clear out the old or that which is no longer serving us. This could be certain friends who have worn out their welcome or situations that just aren't appropriate. Use the energy of raven medicine when you want to enter the void of Great Mystery to create and manifest. Raven teaches you that you are your own magician and creator of your life. It is a potent time for creation.

Spider medicine adds energy to inner-work realizations to become a conscious creator of your own fate. Spider helps you understand your past and then grasp how it links to your future. Spider is my own writer's totem. Spider's energy contributes the ability to weave words together in a way that assists in feeding our souls.

Use essential oils to help amplify your intentions. Essential oils are allies, too!

Inhale the aroma of bergamot, cinnamon, cedarwood, clove, fennel, petitgrain, and ravensara. For example,cinnamon raises your confidence and self-esteem. It helps to unblock the energy you call “blocks,” allowing you to move beyond the perception that something is standing in the way of your goals, desires, or the completion of creative projects. Inhale this essential oil while you repeat the affirmations above. It warms up emotional voids that feel cold and stagnant.

Smudging and clearing negative energy

Many years ago in the early 1990s I had to stop using smoking products to clear negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Smudging using sage bundles is effective and yet I was inspired to create a liquid alternative to smudging. I made myself smudge in spray form. But first, let's delve into what's all this about smudging. Why smudge and what is it?

What is Smudging?

Smudging is the traditional spiritual practice of clearing away negative thoughtforms (the manifestation of mental energy) and other negative vibrations with the smoke of burning herbs, typically dried sage. The sage used for smudging is usually either high desert sage or white wide-leaf sage and is often bound into a bundle called a smudge stick. Other dried herbs, such as cedar, are sometimes added to the bundle as well. Loose dried herbs and resins (like incense sticks) can also be used for smudging.

After years of using the burning herbs I had the realization it was affecting my respiratory system. My ability to breathe well and talk or sing after burning the herbs challenged my lungs and vocal cords. They say that 'necessity is the mother of invention' and this is what is true for my experience when I created Smudge in Spray over 11 years ago.

The Real Purpose of Smudging

The real purpose of smudging originates from the part of you that remembers your true nature, which is calm, peaceful, and happy. Smudging isn’t simply the removal of negativity, but more important, it is the remembrance of love, kindness, compassion, and true happiness. Remember your magnificence! Connect with the wisdom of your ultimate nature. Find inner strength, cultivate self-confidence, and serve others with your love and joy. Know that your existence is truly meaningful!  Excerpted from eBook, All About Smudging

With these elements in mind, Smudge in Spray  has medical grade essential oils which mirror the herbs one would use for clearing energy. The best part is that this liquid smudging alternative has essential oils, Holy Waters, and Sacred Site essences that invite and bring forth blessings and well-being. The components of the formula that I find the most important are the ones that replace the negativity with love, abundance, good health, joy, happiness, loyalty, and goodness in all arenas of life.

Testimonials for the original Smudge in Spray

Here are a few words from people who have used Smudge in Spray for years.

I love this product so much! It smells just divine and, like the other reviews have said, it's instantly calming. I actually use this as my personal fragrance. I know a lot of people who are sensitive to perfumes and this doesn't bother them. It's stays in my purse. I'm addicted!
Jacquie Berkey 04/15/2012
I love this spray; it's so relaxing. Anything that has a scent to it usually gives me a headache. I was surprised, after all these years of having no scents, that this one doesn't give me a headache. I spray it constantly and just walk through it. I might even spray it over my dog. Thank you for the wonderful product!

And I think this is my favorite review for Smudge in Spray

Love the Smudge in Spray aroma and use it all of the time

Review:bought Smudge in Spray and have used it often in the Emergency Room where I work. I am an RN and work in a very chaotic environment. I pray the ER rooms I have been assigned. It's amazing how calm the patients remain during their stay in the ER. I have to admit, at first, my co-workers thought I was crazy. But in very little time, it's been noticeable how just a subtle shift in the energy of a space can affect not only the patients but also the people I work with as well. Now my co-workers are always asking to use the Smudge in Spray. Thank you for your great product!"
