Individual Native American white sage smudging sticks.
Burning white sage is a ritual that has been used for centuries throughout many cultures for use during religious and spiritual practices.
Today, the smoke from white sage is most commonly used to cleanse you and your home of negative and stagnant energy. The practice of burning white sage with a clear intention can help to restore a sense of calm and while it can be used as often as required, it can be particularly useful when:-
Moving into a new home, cleansing the energy from a particular room or object, your mood is low, you need to ground and refocus your spiritual energy, have de cluttered your space, after periods of stress or illness and after having company in your home.
While cleansing with white sage is ideal for clearing air on an energetic level, it also has a few other practical uses. It releases negative ions that fight against things like dust and pollution. Research has also shown that it can clear 94% of bacteria ( for up to 24 hours) which is why its great to use when you’ve not been feeling well.
