White sage is a cleansing and purifying herb traditionally dried and then rolled to form a smudge stick. White sage is used to cleanse and purify a space or object and remove negative energy.
Smudge sticks were used by the Native American Indians and all the herbs used in the sticks are thought of as sacred. Smudging was performed during sacred ceremonies. Materials used would have varied to what was available in the area.
White sage is not a drug but a traditional spiritual tool.
Non Organic Size approx 7 cm long x 3.5 cm wide
Organic comes in two lengths approx 8cm and 13 cm slightly thinner than the non-organic size but fits nicely into a sage bowl.
How to use:
Use a smudge bowl or bowl and ignite the tip of your smudge stick with a match or candle.
Gently wave the stick inside the bowl until it begins to smoulder (best to do this outside) then once smouldering go back inside. Focus your energy and set your intention for your home or object. Now wash the smoke though out the house or over the object.
It is best to start from the front door and work clockwise through each room, getting the smoke into all the corners. Work clockwise around the house ending back at the front door. Leave the door open for 20 minutes or more to remove the negative, old energy from the home.
Be careful of falling embers and hold the bowl under the smudge stick at all times.
When you are finished, carefully extinguish your smudge stick by twisting it into the smudge bowl. Leave in the smudge bowl for next time.
WARNING; Never leave burning sage unattended. Use only with a fireproof container such as a smudge bowl. Limit use around children, pets, pregnancy and those with breathing issues. Keep out of children's reach.
