This loveliest ‘Californian White Sage, Rose Petals & Lavender’ smudge stick wrapped in twine, is perfect for all your smudging needs. Handmade with loving intention, removes negative vibrations replacing then with positivity and so much love!
Burning white sage is an age-old ritual known as smudging and it can be used to cleanse you and your home of negative and stagnant energy.
I like to set an intention before I get started, something simple like ‘Please cleanse my home of any energy or negativity or simply take a moment to feel centred before you begin, it’s more important that it feels right for you.
Smudging is also a first step in setting a sacred space when carrying out one of my secret spa rituals. Smudging is a way to invite higher spiritual vibrations into a place of healing or meditation.
Firstly open a few windows and doors to help any smoke and negative energy leave easily.
Use the matches provided to light your White Sage stick over a flameproof bowl until a small flame has caught. Hold at about 45-degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame and allow it to burn about 30 seconds to 1 min. 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.
When burning sage always remember to set your intentions, use an ash vessel, and never leave unattended. Abalone shells are a traditional vessel for catching the ashes from smudging, but if you don’t have one to hand anything that is made of stone, ceramic, or metal will do.
