Sage Bundle for Smudging
What is smudging? Smudging in a universal practice known to many religions all over the globe. Buddhist temples use incense sticks, Catholic churches use Frankincense, and Native Americans use sage and other herbs before every ceremony to be centred and focused for what follows. The smoke is ‘washed’ over the person or object.
How do I smudge? When smudging, put the material of choice in an abalone shell, clay pot, or any other non-combustible container. Light the end of the sage bundle and allow it to burn for a few moments. Once the bundle has a strong flame, fan out the fire; it is the smoke of the smoldering sage that you want.
Using your hand or a feather, spread the smoke all around yourself first, then fan the smoke over the object or person you are smudging. This clears negativity, cleanses, focuses and purifies that which is being smudged.
Why Use Sage? Sage is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. Use it to ‘wash off’ the outside world when needed, or when entering sacred spaces.
Ingredients: 100% pure dried white sage leaves (Salvia apiana).
Caution: Burn in well ventilated areas and keep out of reach of children and pets
