Customer Questions & Answers
- Question: Does the sage come blessed?
Answer: Probably not but you can bless it yourself by saying a prayer. You want to anoint yourself and all those in the home, including animals with Olive oil. Bless the olive oil by asking God to bless it’s anointing. You then dip your finger in the oil and make the sign of the cross on your head, and heart as you touch those areas. Then say, “God bless this sage as I use it in your name to bless this home.” Then as you walk from room to room you pray aloud, “Lord, I ask you to remove all negative energy and negative spirits that may be here and send your Holy Spirit to Bless all who enter this home. Send your angels to guard and protect us and keep us from harm. In Jesus Name, Amen!” Do this in each room you enter. Don’t forget to open closets while you are blessing each room and also don’t forget hallways and entryways. God bless!
- Question: Is the sage organically grown - free of pesticides?
Answer: Hi there! Yes - 100% of our sage is grown on private property in its natural habitat. There is no human influence on the sage at all, only trained professionals snip the tip of the sage plant for the bundles when it is time to harvest. A lot of care goes into this process, unlike with other companies who harvest sage randomly from the wild. Check out our website for an in-depth look at where our sage comes from : )
- Question: What kind of feather comes with this kit smudging kit?
Answer: Hi D.! It is a natural turkey feather (cleaned of course!). It is a by-product and comes from a cruelty free company : ) - JL Loca
- Question: Can the stand and shell be added to bird bath for then to stand on?
Answer: Thank you for your question! The stand is made of untreated wood so it may not do well in the water and elements after a while. However, the shell would do just fine and would look beautiful in a bird bath! It may be best to place some stones underneath the shell for support and stability though :)
- Question: I wonder how many bath bombs would fit in the shell ?
Answer: I would depend on the size of the bomb....if you're talking full size, it might fit 2
- Question: What stones are on the bracelet?
Answer: The colorful stones are Amethyst (Purple), Sodalite (Dark Blue), Imperial Jasper (Green), Turquoise (Light Blue), Tigers Eye (Brown), Citrine (Yellow), Red Agate (Red). The animal paw charm is made of Zinc. The black beads are real lava stones which work well to absorb/diffuse essential oils so you can wear your favorite scent around all day!
- Question: How does the cedar sage smell? Is it more like a wood smell or something different? Thanks
Answer: Hi there! Well just know that Cedar is not included with this particular kit, it is however included with a few other kits that we offer. Cedar is a very fresh, citrus-y and woody scent! It is SO good : ) But white sage is great too! It's all about preference so it's hard for me to say which is better but definitely a fresh pine type of smell, in the best way!
How to Smudge Your House to Invite Positive Energy
There are many different plant materials you can use for smudging. Some common ones are: sage, cedar, sweet grass, and lavender.
What Is Smudging?
Smudging a way to energetically cleanse a space to invite positive energy. When smudging a space, you burn plant material. The smoke fills and purifies the environment.
My personal go-to is palo santo, a wood from South America. I find that it has a sweet, bright, and minty energy that’s perfect for everyday use.
White sage is probably the most common and popular herb for smudging. It is associated with purity and has a strong and heavy presence. It's definitely useful for when you need a major space cleansing.
As the smoke ascends, our wishes and intentions rise and mingle into the universe, connecting heaven, earth, and humanity.
Smoke offerings are found in Buddhism, Indigenous practices in the U.S., and many other spiritual religions. The smoke ceremony creates transformation and blesses a space and the inhabitants.
Gather Your Materials
Before you begin, take time to gather your materials. The mindfulness of a smoke ritual begins when you collect your supplies, so practice this with ease and care. Do your best to slow down and not rush through this first step.
Keep the ritual materials sacred by using them only for space clearing. You can store your other materials on your shrine or altar.
In feng shui, we also use dried orange peels called “chen pei”. It's also pretty intense. As a Tibetan Buddhist practitioner, I also use juniper to smudge and purify.
There are dozens of new, small online retailers popping up that carry unique (and gorgeous) smudge sticks with all sorts of ingredients bundled together like rose, mugwort, rosemary, and more.
Candle and Matches
It’s recommended to have a candle nearby to relight the smudge stick during the smudging ceremony. Matches or a lighter is used to light the candle. And you will light the smudge stick with the candle flame.
It's useful to have a fireproof container, like a small clay bowl, to hold underneath the smudge stick to catch any ashes or embers. Indigenous peoples often use an abalone shell for this, bringing in a water element. I recommend you use a container (bowl or plate) that you love and only use for smudging ceremonies.
Bowl of Sand
A bowl of sand is a must. It is used to properly extinguish the smudge stick safely after the ritual is complete.
Before You Begin the Smudging Ceremony
Allow enough space and time for the ritual so you don’t feel rushed. If possible, meditate for at least five minutes to calm your mind and heart.
If anyone else is present during this smudging ceremony, you can include them in the ritual. Prepare some other space clearing tools that they can use while you are smudging. For instance they can work with sound and ring bells.
Remember when performing a space clearing, intention is key. Before you start, take some time to contemplate what your wishes are for your home and family. When you clear your house, there’s a vacuum that’s created. You want to welcome your intentions into the newly cleared and open space.
Smudging the Space
Now that you have all your tools and preparations in place, you can begin the smudging ritual.
Start at the front door of the home and light your smudge stick. Then, begin to move around the home. Move mindfully and with care, walking clockwise around the entire perimeter of the home. Be sure to allow the smoke to drift into even the hidden spaces, like inside closets, basements and dark corners. If there are stairs, just go up or down when you encounter them. Then keep moving clockwise until you meet the stairs again. Then continue to go down or up the stairs and resume the main floor.
Moving around a space like this is called “circumambulation”. It’s a practice that’s been done for centuries in ancient cultures to make a space more sacred. And, if it feels okay to you, it’s helpful to chant a mantra or a prayer that you’re connected to. I use the Tibetan Buddhist mantra “Om mani padme hum”, the mantra of compassion. This is a way to fill the space with more cleansing vibrations.
Closing the Ceremony
When you arrive back at the front door, chant your final mantra or prayer. Visualize the entire home is filled with bright white sunlight. Then speak your intention one last time to close the smudging ceremony.
Smudging rituals are a beautiful technique to clear a space. This can be done annually or more often. It’s especially powerful to perform a space clearing when you first move into a home, or on the lunar new year.
11 Benefits of Burning Sage, How to Get Started, and More
Where did the practice originate?
Burning sage — also known as smudging — is an ancient spiritual ritual.
Smudging has been well established as a Native American cultural or tribal practice, although it isn’t practiced by all groups.
We have the traditions of many Native American peoples to thank for its use. This includes the Lakota, Chumash, Cahuilla, among others.
Many other cultures around the world share similar rituals.
Read on to learn more about the benefits of burning sage and how you can use it to improve your overall well-being.
1. It may be purifying
The most-used types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay.
White prairie sage (Artemisia ludoviciana) is both antimicrobial and . White sage (Salvia apiana) is also antimicrobial. And both have been shown to repel insects.
Beliefs that burning sage clears out spiritual impurities, pathogens, and even insects have been fundamental to the practice of smudging.
2. It may help relieve the symptoms of some conditions
It turns out that sage may help clear the air of lots more than bugs and bacteria.
Though scientifically unproven, burning sage is thought to release negative ions. This is said to help neutralize positive ions.
Common positive ions are allergens like:
- pet dander
If this is the case, burning sage may be a blessing for those with asthma, allergies, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions. But inhaling the smoke during the smudging can aggravate any respiratory condition. Wait until the smoke clears before going into the room.
3. It can be a spiritual tool
Smudging has long been used to connect to the spiritual realm or enhance intuition.
For healers and laypeople in traditional cultures, burning sage is used to achieve a healing state — or to solve or reflect upon spiritual dilemmas.
This may have some scientific basis, too. Certain types of sage, including salvia sages and white prairie sage, contain thujone.
Research shows that thujone is mildly psychoactive. It’s actually found in many plants used in cultural spiritual rituals to enhance intuition.
4. It may help dispel negative energy
Smudging may also be used as a ritual tool to rid yourself — or your space — of negativity. This includes past traumas, bad experiences, or negative energies from others.
This may help you establish a positive environment for meditation or another ritual. Choosing to sit and let go of negative thoughts in a ritual like this sets your intention and dedication to self-improvement. Choosing to engage in ritual can be the beginning of your change in mindset.
5. It can cleanse or empower specific objects
Burning sage creates fragrant smoke central to smudging’s benefits. You can use this incense to smudge yourself or specific spaces. Or according to some sources, you can smudge specific objects.
This can be useful with new purchases, gifts, or secondhand items. However, any item can be smudged.
If you have any concern with negative history or energy attached to a new or unfamiliar object, smudging may help bring peace of mind and make the object more sacred to you.
6. It may help improve your mood
Tradition suggests that smudging can literally lift one’s spirits to banish negativity. Some research supports this.
A 2014 study documented white prairie sage (also known as estafiate) as an important traditional remedy for treating anxiety, depression, and mood disorders in certain cultures.
8. It may improve the quality of your sleep
Smudging has been traditionally used to safeguard against negativity that could interfere with sleep.
Some research suggests that sage contains compounds that could help ease insomnia.
Classic garden sage (Salvia officinalis) is sometimes burned like white sage. It’s also been used to improve sleep and soothe anxiety.
9. It may help boost cognition
In addition to dissipating negative energy, improving mood, and strengthening intuition, smudging with sage might improve your memory and focus.
A noted that evidence for Salvia’s cognitive-enhancing benefits are promising — perhaps to treat dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Still, more research is needed.
10. It may help boost your energy levels
Ridding the body, objects, and spaces of bad energy can help welcome in newer, fresher, and more positive energies. In a way, this could have an energizing effect and help with fatigue.
Some sagelike species closely related to white prairie sage are also used for smudging. Many have documented antifatigue uses.
11. It can create an uplifting fragrance
For some, this may be the best of all benefits: Sage is a lovely incense with a divine aroma, pure and simple.
It also works great as a chemical-free air freshener or odor controller.
What you need
The practice of burning sage or smudging is fairly simple, with few necessary tools.
Basic tools include:
- a sage bundle (or smudge stick)
- some recommend a seashell or bowl of ceramic, clay, or glass to hold burning sage or capture ash
- some recommend matches over a manufactured lighter
- optional feather or fan for fanning smoke
There are many types of sage usable for smudging. Traditional examples include:
- white sage (Salvia apiana)
- other Salvia species
- white prairie sage or estafiate (Artemisia ludoviciana)
- other Artemisia species
To support and respect the cultures that developed the practice, purchase sage from native gatherers, crafters, and artists.
How to prepare for a smudge
Before burning sage, some recommend setting intentions if smudging for spiritual, energetic, and negativity clearing purposes. Remove animals or people from the room.
It’s also important to leave a window open before, during, and after smudging. This allows smoke to escape.
Some believe smoke also takes impurities and negative energy with it — so don’t skip this step.
How to smudge your living space, an object, and more
These steps apply whether you’re smudging yourself, your home, or an object. You can smudge any of these as often as you’d like.
- Light the end of a sage bundle with a match. Blow out quickly if it catches on fire.
- The tips of the leaves should smolder slowly, releasing thick smoke. Direct this smoke around your body and space with one hand while holding the bundle in the other.
- Allow the incense to linger on the areas of your body or surroundings you’d like to focus on. Using a fan or feather can also help direct the smoke, though this is optional.
- Allow the ash to collect in a ceramic bowl or shell.
Smudge your home or living space
In this instance, direct sage smoke over all surfaces and spaces in your home or living area. Be thorough.
Some recommend working in a clockwise direction around your home, ending back where you started, especially for spiritual purposes. Others recommend counterclockwise.
Do what feels best for your situation and follow your intuition.
Smudge an object
Direct smoke around and over the object of your choice.
This can be done to a new item, such as jewelry, furniture, or clothing, to protect or dispel it of negative energy. Items related to negative experiences or memories may also be smudged.
Some people burn sage over special objects, to acknowledge the object with sacred meaning.
You can also light and burn sage to improve odor, fragrance, and mood.
Simply waft sage smoke in and around your home. You can place the bundle in a fireproof bowl or burner and allow it to smoke for a while.
What to do after a smudge
Make sure your smudge stick is completely extinguished. You can do this by dabbing the lit end into a small bowl of ash or sand.
Check the end closely to make sure there are no more embers burning. Once it’s completely put out, store it in a safe, dry place out of the sun.
Are there any side effects or risks?
When done correctly and respectfully, smudging is completely safe and the effects last after the smoke clears.
Be careful with sage when it’s lit. If you aren’t careful, burns and even fire is possible. Have water nearby.
Never leave burning sage unattended. Make sure to put your sage bundle out completely after every use.
Setting off smoke alarms is common. Consider this if smudging in a public building.
People with asthma and other respiratory conditions may be more sensitive to the smoke and have adverse reactions.
Always leave a window open while smudging. Inhaling smoke can be hazardous to your health.
The bottom line
Burning sage has many benefits as a spiritual practice. Some research supports certain health benefits of sage, such as antimicrobial properties and enhanced alertness, but more research is needed.
There is very little research on smudging as a practice beyond the cultural practice of the ritual.
Keep in mind: Burning sage is a sacred religious practice in some Native American cultures. Treat the ritual with respect.
