Sage Smudge Stick
The ancient practice of burning dried sage for cleansing has its roots in Native American tradition; it was thought to promote healing, wisdom, and longevity.
The indigenous practice performed by shamans, involved burning sage over fire to cleanse a person of negativity, including illness, conflict. Sage smudging is thought to cleanse ourselves and our spaces of negative energy, preparing us for a new chapter, new month, new week, and clarify the intentions you want to set. Just like clearing a space, the smoke from sage dissipates and fills the space with the intent to remove and cleanse negativity. Research is showing that sage can also be used to benefit physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and a number of studies that have shown that medicinal smokes such as sage have powerful antimicrobialand antibacterial qualities, can improve mood and cognition.
How to use:
1. Gather your tools
2. Set your intentions
3. Light your sage (hold at a 45-degree angle, light it using a match, let it burn for about 20 seconds, blow out the flame so you see orange embers on one end. The smoke should not billow up.)
4. Move around your space slowly, guide the smoke (and bad energy) towards an open window or door so it can escape
