You guys I am so excited we found these! Wow. As a very avid sage user I love the length of these! I was running out of my sage so fast (the normal size) and these act like a wand of smudge smoke. They are perfect and give off twice as much smoke and last twice as long. Will never go back to any other size.
What is Sage?
Sage is what I consider my household staple for clearing negative energy. Burning sage brings such a calming sensation to your body and your home; you can just feel the negativity dissolve from your sacred space.
How to Smudge Your Space
Smudging (aka sage) is a ritual and ceremonial practice used by cultures around the world since humans have existed. The Native Americans have used the earths’ plants, both fresh and dry, for healing. Plants are known to carry their own energy, just as our bodies and surroundings do. The art of smudging, with burning sage, woods or herbs and focusing on our own ritual and prayers, helps to clear negative unwanted energy. Smudging cleanses, rebalances and opens fresh energy so our life and chakra energy continues to flow much like an open river so we can move forward. Stagnant old energy holds us back from living an energetic authentic life!
Smudging is done by lighting the end of the smudge bundle and once it starts smoking, blow it out. Gently fan the smoke with your hands upwards and over your body allowing it to touch and cleanse you, taking in the aroma while doing so. Walk through your home or the area you wish to cleanse and gently blow or fan the smoke with either your hands or a feather. Items are smudged by holding them over the smudge stick and allowing the smoke from the smudge bundle to come up over them.
