How to use this smoke wand
Slow down and take your time. Focus on your breathing. Light the bundle of incense at the top, let it burn a little, and then blow out the flame. Now a glow and smoke forms. By blowing gently or by swinging it back and forth you keep the embers alive. You can spread the smoke throughout the room or focus on cleansing your body. When cleansing your body I suggest using the smoke wand before and after a (preferably cold) shower. Sink into your body and release all the tension. Listen to that inner voice and dare to give in to what it whispers. To extinguish you can use our smoke wand jar with or without water or sand in it or let it burn out. Now ventilate well and let in new energies.
Caution: High temperatures are created when smoking. Do not leave the incense unattended. The smoke can irritate the respiratory tract and eyes. Pay special attention to younger children. If you smoke, you do so at your own risk. We do not accept any liability.
