Our large desert sage smudge sticks are approximately 8" long, hand harvested, hand tied and harvested in a sustainable way.
Burning sage (smudging) is an important part of energetic house clearing. Practiced by Native Americans and Shamans for centuries to clear negative energy from spaces, objects and people. One of the most sacred ceremonial plants to seek blessings and encourage protection.
Directions: Light one end of the bundle (the end w/out the stick portion of the plant). Once the bundle is lit, blow out the flames. Your bundle will still be smoldering and smoking. This smoke is what will carry the negativity away. Make sure a window or door is open when you begin. Start at one end of your home and fan the smoke (usually with a feather) toward the upper corners of each room. You may say a prayer while doing this, but it is completely up to you! When you have finished with your clearing, do not snuff out the bundle, the sage will know when the work is done. Allow it to rest on a heat proof dish until it goes out on it's own. Always use caution when working with lit sage and never leave it unattended.
