Blue Shasta Sage Smudge Stick (11.5cm)
Our Blue Shasta Sage Smudge Sticks comes from Mount Shasta in California. It can be used like White Sage as an incense or for smudging to cleanse a room or person, restoring or maintaining energy purity.
Smudging is the cleansing of auras and energies of a person or space using a sage smudge stick, although other herbs and even flowers can also be used.
Lighting the bundle and using the smoke around a person or space along with a visualization of the negative energy being removed forms the ritual of smudging.
In theory the smoke attaches itself to the negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy.
The benefits of using a sage smudge stick:
Not just for cleansing the spirit, smudging is also great for clearing any energy blockages in your crystals, as well! Just make sure that the smoke permeates the air surrounding your crystals; it is one of the quickest ways to purify your crystals.
Clearing negative energy
Negative energy is so easy to absorb, and it is living all around us. I find that burning sage is the most clarifying way to eliminate the negative energy that has been weighing on you.
An amazing reliever of stress, the fragrant aroma that comes from smudging herbs can be soothing to the nerves. It is one of the reasons that smudging is often used during meditation and yoga.
Boosts energy levels
Energy blockages can be a huge reason that your energy levels are down. Don’t take this as a diagnosis per say, as burning some herbs cannot cure anemia, or any other serious disorders. What we mean here by energy is mental energy; those moments when you feel like giving up, or a negative presence is weighing down on you. It is important to regularly cleanse these mental blockages with smudging, introspection and meditation
How to use your sage smudge stick
place the smudge stick on any heat-proof burning surface.
Open your windows and doors so that the negative energy has a means of escape.
Light the bundle by holding a flame to it until it begins to smoke. If a true flame appears, shake the bundle gently or blow until it is just embers and smoke. You may have to relight your sage a few times during the cleansing process.
Once you have a nice smoke going, use you hand or a feather to direct the smoke and walk around your house in a clockwise motion starting at the front door. It’s important that you do not overlook the corners of your house. Visualize a white ball of energy filling your rooms as you do so.
Once the space is cleared, allow the sage bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your heat-proof shell or container. You can use your sage stick more than once as they last quite a while.
