How to Use Sage

Using a sage bundle is a simple and meaningful way to cleanse and purify your space. Here are the basic steps to use a sage bundle:

1. Gather your supplies: You'll need a sage bundle (also called a smudge stick), a fireproof container like a ceramic bowl or abalone shell, and a lighter or matches.

2. Set your intention: Before you begin, take a moment to set your intention for the sage smudging. Think about what you want to release or cleanse from your space, and what positive energy you want to invite in.

3. Open windows and doors: Ensure that there is proper ventilation by opening windows and doors so that the smoke can exit the space.

4. Ignite the sage bundle: Hold one end of the sage bundle and light the other end using a lighter or matches. Allow it to catch fire and then gently blow out the flame, letting the bundle smolder and produce smoke.

5. Begin smudging: Starting from the entrance of the room, walk slowly and mindfully around the space, wafting the smoke with your hand or a feather. Direct the smoke into corners, closets, and other areas you want to cleanse. Visualize the smoke carrying away negative energies.

6. Focus on specific areas: Pay special attention to areas that may accumulate stagnant energy or negative vibes, such as doorways, windows, and around objects. You can also smudge yourself by wafting the smoke over your body.

7. Extinguish the sage bundle: Once you've finished smudging, gently press the burning end of the sage bundle into the fireproof container to extinguish it. Ensure it is completely out before leaving it unattended.

Remember, sage smudging is a sacred practice, so approach it with reverence and respect. Enjoy the cleansing and purifying effects it can bring to your space.White Sage Bundle
