Directions for use.
Hold your bundle horizontally or at an angle so the flame will naturally travel up/alongside/inside the bundle just a little bit. You want that flame to hit the same area for a period of time to get it going. Then blow it out then let it ember.
Take the stick around your area and allow the smoke to enter the corners, doorways and around the rooms.
Most smudges will stop smoldering after a couple of minutes. You may need to relight the bundle frequently but that is just a natural characteristic of smudges and it gets easier with experience.
keep in a fire proof tray. Don’t leave unattended.
