Indigenous tribes have burned sage for centuries as part of a spiritual ritual to cleanse a person or space, and to promote healing and wisdom. It's been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians and Romans to treat digestive issues, memory problems, and sore throats. The name sage comes from the Latin “salvia,” which means, “to feel well and healthy, health, heal.”
Smudging allows you to wash away all the emotional and spiritual negativity that gathers in your body and your space over time. It's a little bit like taking a spiritual shower! The effects of smudging can be very effective, often banishing stress almost instantly and providing energy and peace. Smudging can also help your body and space to adjust to the healing rhythms of the seasonal cycle- turning your space, and your body, into a peaceful, beautiful temple in which you can rejuvenate yourself and fine happiness.
Place the sage bundle in the bottom of an abalone shell or other heat resistant dish. Ignite the leaves, blow out flame and the sage will release a cloud of white, purifying smoke. The smell of white sage brings a sense of peace and clarity, while clearing negativity from the room.
