Organic White Sage Herb bundles

Salvia apiana

Common Names: White sage, California white sage, sacred white sage, grandfather sage, bee sage, buffalo sage, and a number of traditional tribal names

Burning a dried herb bundle is a ritual practice to cleanse and purify people and spaces and to invite positive energy. The smoke fills and purifies the environment.  As the smoke ascends, our wishes and intentions rise and mingle into the universe, connecting heaven, earth and humanity.

White Sage emits negative ions and our aura holds positive ions. Through the smudging/saining process we can neutralise our aura or the energy of other spaces and objects to cleanse and renew.

White Sage is the most popular herb to perform a smoke cleanse with.
White sage was traditionally used for ceremonial or medicinal purposes. The most well-known of these uses is burning it to release its fragrant smoke. While the term “smudging” is often applied to this process, the origin of that term actually comes from medieval Europe. A more accurate term would be smoke cleansing.The smoke produced has traditionally been used to purify or cleanse objects by fanning it across the object. It is also used similarly to purify or cleanse people in a similar fashion. Tribal spiritual leaders might have special fans or feathers which they would use for this purpose, depending on the specific tribe’s religious views.While it is easiest and most common to bundle the leaves and stems together and dry them for this purpose, they can also be burned individually. Crumbled or powdered leaves can be burned as powdered incense too.The smoke is used in many other traditional ceremonies. Ohlone people use it as part of the preparation for and during their bear dance, for example. The Cahuilla bird singers often use it before they sing the traditional songs. It is an integral part of many Californian tribal religions. Uses like these tend to be overshadowed in the public eye by the popularity of smudging with white sage for its cleansing purpose.

How to use:
Clean and de-clutter your space before you begin a smoke cleanse; to disturb the negative energy and allow fresh new positive energy to move through your spaces. Open your doors and windows. To light your saining stick, hold by the end of the bundle. Using a candle or a lighter,  light the bundle until there is a small flame. Once steadily burning, blow out the flame leaving the stick smoldering and giving off smoke. Take care to keep an ash receptacle beneath the stick. Focus your energy on the smoke. You may wish to say prayers or repeat incantations or mantras as you work. You can use a feather to fan the smoke into and around areas of your home or office, or use the power of your breath.  Move through your home or space starting at the entry door and work your way around in an anti-clockwise direction (deosil in the southern hemisphere) through each room, making sure to focus the smoke into corners of the room as that is where stagnant enery accumulates, and cleanse windows and doors. When smudging is complete, simply snuff out the stick either into sand or a heatproof bowl and store for the next use.
