Sage is a potent plant, and burning it is a powerful ritual. Burning sage (aka, “smudging” or “sage-ing”) is a ritual used to “cleanse” a space or environment from negative energy, generate wisdom and clarity, promote healing and getting rid of the haters.
Directions: Light the end of the smudge stick with a lighter or a match, and allow smudge to smolder and fill your space with the resinous scent of sage. Relight as desired. Have a bowl of sand nearby to extinguish. Be careful with fire and never leave the burning smudge stick alone.
