spring smudge sticks

I am soooo excited for spring. It’s time for blossoming flowers, wardrobe refreshes, and, of course, spring cleaning! Reorganizing my space and clearing away winter’s dirt and debris has become a calming, introspective time for me — a treasured ritual I look forward to every year.

Just as important as the elbow grease and cleaning spray is smudging, aka using smoke to cleanse away negativity and cast out winter blues. Make your own smudge sticks for a fresh start to spring in a few easy steps.

Here’s three of my favorite combinations, for the full tutorial head to Jojotastic and make some of your own!

By now, you’ve probably heard of the Japanese indigo dye process called Shibori, and might have even seen some of the beautiful blue and white patterns it can create. But did you know that it’s super easy to achieve at home? I was totally blown away by how simple this project was, and I’m in love with my new shibori-style bath mat. Once I got started, it was hard not to Shibori everything in sight!
