Making smudge sticks with foraged/homegrown herbs!

Posted by & filed under gardening, inthekitchen.

During one of the stops on my bee rounds this weekend was Brooklyn Navy Yard. While checking my top bar hive I noticed an herb growing in abundance around the hives that had recently been made known to me by my friend Liz Neves of Raganella Botanical Solutions.


It’s called Sweet Clover (it comes with white or yellow flowers) and it smells heavenly. Liz gave me a smudge stick of her own making some months back so I thought I’d try my hand at making a few myself with some of the lavender we’re growing at Design Plot.

Check out some easy instructions here! I’ve got mine hanging right now, but once they are dry I’ll hit you guys with an update!
