Each smudge product has a specific use and meaning:
White Sage (4inch) - Burned for centuries by Native Americans & other indigenous peoples as part of a spiritual ritual to cleanse a person or space, and to promote wisdom and healing. It's also thought to have been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians and Romans to treat memory problems, digestive issues, and sore throats. The name sage comes from the Latin “salvia,” which means, “to feel healthy.”
Desert Blue Sage (4inch) - Used in Native American smudging ceremonies for purification, protection and inner strength. It is often burned at the beginning or prior to the main smudging ceremony - Desert Blue Sage has also been used for relaxing, relief from anxiety and headaches. Often its small shedded leaves are spread and scattered over the floor.
Yerba Santa (4 inch) - The name Yerba Santa, "holy weed," was given by the Spanish priests who learned of the medical value of the shrub from Native California tribes. It has been burned for centuries by native Americans to promote good health and well-being. Yerba santa is used in herbal medicine as well as in extract form in many modern medicines for respiratory conditions including cough, cold, tuberculosis, asthma, and long-term swelling (inflammation) of the airways in the lungs (chronic bronchitis). It is also used for fever and dry mouth. Some people use it to relieve muscle spasms and to loosen phlegm.
Palo Santo (4 inch) - Palo santo has been used by Indigenous tribes and modern civilians across South and Central America for years. It is used as oils, burning wood and in many health and sanitary products. It is believed that burning Palo Santo (Holy Wood) clears negative energy out of the door and invites in pure and positive energy. Unlike the other, plant based smudge products, Palo Santo is as much about welcoming and attracting good, as it is about clearing the bad.
How do I get started?
Open a few windows and doors to help any smoke and negative energy leave easily.
Light your sage stick over your flameproof bowl until a small flame has caught. While holding your sage over the bowl lightly blow on the flame until it goes out. The sage will then smoke gently like incense. Remember that it’s the smoke that does the work and so the stick does not have to remain lit.
Walk around your home clockwise, carefully Using your hands or a feather to waft the smoke into all areas of your space. Include all small spaces that collect negative energy like corners, windows and behind doors. It’s also good to open cupboards and wardrobes because they can also hold stagnant energy.
Remember that the goal is to allow a light amount of smoke to move around your space there’s no need to create a thick cloud of smoke!
You may need to relight the sage stick to make it around the whole house - simply relight it over your flameproof bowl and lightly blow it out as before. Then carry on where you left off.
There are some who believe the sage stick should be left to smoulder rather than extinguish - this should only be done if you are able to stay with it while it burns. If not then extinguish it by lightly pressing the stick into earth, sand or into your fireproof dish. Never leave a lit sage stick unattended.
How often do i sage smudge my home?
Smudging your home can be done whenever you like, there’s no need to wait for a certain day or moon cycle - I use it daily but weekly or monthly is just fine too. Just like everything in life, trust your intuition and you can’t go wrong. Enjoy!
