Instructions for Use

It’s Simple

To begin, open a window to let out the stale air laden with impurities.


Light your bouquet with a long match, or a previously lit candle.

After a flame appears on the head of the bouquet, gently blow to extinguish it and let the beneficial smoke spread.


With the smoking bouquet in hand, move in your indoor space, walk along the walls and linger in the corners where the air is laden with pollution.

Pay Attention

As with any combustible object, even when the flame is extinguished, care should be taken not to leave the bouquet unattended. Do not move over a carpet without holding a dish underneath. Do not approach flammable products. Keep the bouquet in hand from beginning to end.

Finally place the bouquet on a dish while it extinguishes itself off under your supervision, or lightly snuff the remaining smoking embers.

The Good Times

Our bouquets of plants can be used whenever you feel the need, or simply as a daily sanitizing ritual, at the beginning or end of the day, as you would with opening your windows.


We encourage you to use them in your different places of life: at the home, the office, or any other place of activity. For example, before the practice of a yoga or meditation session, when a need for a change of mood is felt, or to put a place back to its neutral energy load.


The Origins of Fumigation

An Almost Universal Practice

Very ancient, the practice of fumigation was shared by Roman, Egyptian, Celtic and Amerindian peoples on all continents. Temples and houses were purified, and later hospitals, in order to drive away disease and evil spirits.

Thus, the spaces were cleansed by burning plants or resins with medicinal virtues such as myrrh, benzoin or sage.


At home, bouquets of plants were used to maintain the home. They were burned in chimneys for purifying, therapeutic or magical purposes. The rites of the Celts, Druids, and some pagan folk practices, were organized around the virtuous capacity of plants and moon changes.

"per fume"... by smoke,

Perfumes, purifies and harmonizes



In the vernacular of the Roussillon region, burning a composition in the fireplace is called "making a perfume". Fumigation was the first form of perfume (in Latin: per fumum).

Its Benefits

We have seen that the smoke of certain virtuous plants cleanses the place and, according to beliefs, has magical virtues.

Smoke also has an action on the mood, thanks to the soothing, tonic and regenerative virtues of plants, but also to the release, during combustion, of negative ions and the absorption of positive ions.


Air saturated with positive ions is harmful to health, while an atmosphere rich in negative ions – such as by the sea or in the mountain – is beneficial, especially for the respiratory tract, the immune system and the psychic and nervous balance.
