Our 5 inch sage smudge sticks are wild-crafted and hand tied. Light your smudge stick and once it begins to burn, blow out the flame and allow the embers to start to smolder and smoke (similar to lighting incense). Use your hand or a feather to waft the smoke.
Sage smudging is a ritual where the leaves of the sage plant are burned and the smoke is directed into and onto areas or people that are in need of cleansing. The idea is that as the leaves are burned the spirit of the sage plant releases its energy of cleansing and purification into the space or onto the object that needs cleansing. As the smoke moves through the room or over a surface, the smoke attaches itself to any heavy, negative energy that is within the space, object or being. As the smoke clears, the spirit of the sage carries with it the negative energy that was once attached.
Here are some situations where you might want to sage smudge your aura or your space:
- When you move into a new living space
- Before and after a guest enters your home
- Before meditation
- After an argument or any illness
- Upon returning home from crowded situations
