Tree of protection
Juniper is a versatile low tree that is used today to make drinks, boxes, and cutlery. Many people do not know that before the ancient peoples discovered this versatile utility, they called the juniper a "tree of protection".
Native Americans took a juniper branch with them on long journeys for protection. This should protect them from negative influences and destruction. Juniper water was also used in the ancient spiritual purification custom of the "sweat lodge", where the water was poured over hot stones and thereby created purifying steam.
Today, juniper twigs are used as incense, combined with white sage.
White sage cleans negative energy from space and our lives, while juniper twigs protect the space around us and prevent the entry of negative influences.
We use it when we are in search of inner peace after we drive away the bad energy that has accumulated around us. Above all, incense is also useful when we decide on a new direction in life, accept a new task, a new project.

Instructions for use
Light the roll gently and slowly over the flame. We recommend lighting it over a candle flame. Direct ignition with a lighter is not desirable because it introduces unpleasant odors into the process. We want the ignition process to be natural, as it was done thousands of years ago.
When lighting the roll for the first time, let a small flame develop. It is important not to blow out the flame. Native Americans believe that by blowing the flame out of your body, you are lowering and extinguishing your soul. Therefore, we prefer to turn the white sage with sweet grass vertically upwards (so that the flame is on the upper side), where it will naturally extinguish itself and start releasing a pleasant and extremely relaxing smell.
If the flame does not go out by itself, wave the air to blow the flame out with the wind.
Energy cleaning of the room
We walk around the room with the smoking roll and make slow circles as we walk. This prolongs the smoldering.
We recommend that you hold a small container under the smoldering roll with your other hand, where any embers can fall and thus prevent damage to objects in your room.
If we want to cleanse the room of negative energy and protect it from further intrusion of unwanted elements, walk with incense over all the corners of the room and gently envelop the room in smoke. Let's not forget the corners of the room where negative energy tends to accumulate. White sage with sweet grass is then placed in a fireproof container and allowed to extinguish itself.
Don't worry, the incense will not burn to the end, you will be able to use it for a long time.
