White Sage Smudge Stick
White sage from the coastal mountains of California. This is a broad leaf sage which is prized for its strong aromatic properties. California White Sage has been used for thousands of years for cleansing, purifying ones self and others as well as an area of space through the technique of smudging.
Smudging is a ritual way to cleanse a person , place or an object of negative energies, spirits or influences. The smudging ceremony involves the burning of special, sacred plants and herbal resins, then, either passing an object through the resulting smoke, or fanning the smoke around a person or place. The spirit of the plant then purifies whatever is being smudged.
