White sage is used to cleanse a space, clearing negative energies. This is an ancient Shamanic ritual that has become a popular method for cleansing, right across the world.
Our sage is sourced from California where it is sustainably harvested as part of a social enterprise to re-engage first nation people in meaningful employment with cultural significance.
All sage is collected on private land with a portion of profits going back to landowners. We love the work they’re doing as much as the beautiful, ethical sage they produce.
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 a 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, carefully using your hands or a feather to waft the smoke into all areas of your space. 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.
