Sage – White Sage (Smudge Stick)
Stocks of White Sage are bundled together with natural string, thread or twine to create these small smudge sticks. There are many indigenous cultures that use Sage or other herbs to help cleanse and clear your home, office, work place, building or yourself. If you are familiar with one of their methods for smudging, follow it, allowing plenty of uninterrupted time for yourself. 10 to 15 minutes should do it in an average size space. Each bundle will likely provide several uses.
Along with the sage bundle (or loose leaf if you prefer), you will need matches and a fireproof dish or container. Conch shells are commonly used for this. When using a White Sage bundle, you may want to have one of our ‘Crystal Clear Energetic Mysts’ or a candle available for after the smudging.
- Since White Sage neutralizes the energies in a space, many people choose to follow the clearing with something to set or claim the intention they want for the home, space or themselves. We recommend one of our Energetic Mysts, or you could use a candle or crystal bowl or anything that symbolizes your positive intentions!
- Always be careful when smudging. It is your responsibility to ensure you and your property remain safe and are nurtured and cared for. There is always some risk when you are working with lighted matches or flame.
