Smudging feather bundle with colorful hand-tied yarn handle. These natural ritual tools are created with intentions of peace, healing Reiki energy, and love for the best intentions to come forward. Feathers and hand tied color wraps will vary, no two will ever be the same.
Smudging, which involves the burning of sacred herbs and medicines, has been practiced by Indigenous peoples around the world for centuries, and continues to be popular today. One of the traditional elements of the smudging ceremony is the smudging feather, which is used to waft the cleansing smoke around the body, around items that require cleansing, or around a space.
The most common feather used in each bundle is the turkey feather, then peacock and guinea feathers are added to create one-of-a-kind bundles. The Wild Turkey, which happens to be one of the largest indigenous North American birds, also plays an important role in Indigenous life. The turkey helps to keep the lands safe and healthy, providing both gentle care and vigilant protection. Fun fact: Benjamin Franklin would have rather had the Wild Turkey as our national symbol than the Bald Eagle.
Just as Native Americans used the feathers to send prayers to the heavens and draw healing power from the sky, we hope powerful healing accompanies you with every footstep.
