Sage – Sage smudging is an ancient spiritual ritual. It is commonly used by, and believed to have originated with, Aboriginal people in ceremonies, at events, during rituals and more. ‘Smudging’ as it’s known, has traditionally been used as protection against negativity or to clear your space of bad or incorrect energies. Recent studies have shown that smudging with sage can kill up to 94% of airborne bacteria for up to 30 days. Some research has also suggested that smudging sage can help with insomnia as well.
How to use your Sage
Light a match, hold the stick at a 45-degree angle down towards the flame. Light the stick and let it burn for about 30 seconds (watch for a nice full bright flame) and then fan it out. Rest the Sage Stick on an incense burner, abalone shell or another item that is heat friendly and allow the smoke to fill your space.
Alternatively, you may walk around your home or whichever space you are working in/cleansing, and allow the smoke to work its way into all corners and areas. While doing this, you should have a clear and specific intention in mind and use something to fan the stick as you hold it over an abalone shell or some kind of bowl (to catch the ashes as it can get messy!). You can speak your intention out loud while smudging/cleansing. Please keep in mind, there is no right or wrong way to smudge and cleanse your space. Whatever feels right or good for you will do.
