White Sage (Salvia Apiana) has been used for centuries by the Native Americans as incense used during purification ceremonies and prayers. White Sage is therefore called Indian Frankincense.
The ritual of burning sage or other holy herbs, is done to clear a space or person of negative energies. So If your home feels stale or sad, if an argument has taken place and the air still hums with anger, if unpleasant energy lingers after a visitor – these are times to cleanse. One may also smudge one’s self to banish anger, ailment, sadness or illness.
White sage is a strong cleaner. It opens the heart energy. The burning of sage is also an air, spirit, and mind cleanse. A sage smoke ritual before bedtime stimulates visions and dreams.
How to USE
Open a window when you do indoor smoking so that the energy can flow away. Once you’ve cleansed a space, and the stagnant energy has been dispelled the space is left with a vacuum. At this point, it’s important to fill the space with the energy of love and white light. You don’t want your space filled with random energy that floats around, right?! You can burn your favorite incense, use palo santo essential oil or light up a stick of Palo Santo and call in your desired energies.
