Amazing Nature Contest: Thematic Challenge - #2/4/21

(Google translate from Czech)

Many of you are so familiar with nature that they can find and use medicinal herbs for ailments of the body. But man, as a part of nature, is not just a material body.

Greetings to all fans of Amazing Nature Community.

We are also energetic beings. For our happy and full life, we also need an energetic connection with the universe and nature. Nowadays, there are many things that block the supply of energy. It is therefore important from time to time to "cleanse" the energy connection. Our ancestors knew this art.

There was a man in every community, and in many places still there, who knew exactly what natural ingredients to use to purify the energy connection with the Universe.

I apologize for the lengthy introduction. But it was needed. To meet this challenge, you need to be


Your task will be:

  • find plants and other natural material for the preparation of fumigants
  • describe the ingredients used
  • take a documentary photo
  • Describe how your smoker affected you


As always, a little inspiration for you.
For many years, I have been preparing a fumigant from these ingredients almost regularly:

  • oak sawdust
  • pine resin
  • Rosemary (dried)
  • lavender (dried)
  • charcoal

I grind sawdust, rosemary, lavender and charcoal in a mortar to a fine dust and add the resin. From this mixture knead small balls. I store the balls in a paper box and store them in a dark and dry place.

If necessary, I will place a pre-prepared ball in a metal incense burner on hot charcoal. The burning of the ball creates smoke, which cleanses the energy connections.
Once every six months, I "clean" the whole house and, of course, myself and my family. After using the smoker, there is an almost immediate feeling of relaxation from stress, a clearer perception of sounds and colors.


I wish you many interesting experiences in creating and using your own smoker.

Thank you for your link.
I like that you make a smoker according to intuition.

Thank you. I just do what feels right at the time, most of the time it works if I'm in the right head-heart space.


Thank you for your link.
Energy cleaning should belong to the basic rules of personal hygiene :-)
