This is a smudge bundle of White Sage (Salvia apiana). This gray herb is wrapped in string so that it can be lit on one end for "smudging" (i.e., using smoke to clear an area). White Sage is holy by nature, and the bundle has also been blessed.
Our Mini-Smudges™ are very popular and convenient. If you want to use them multiple times, you can push the lit end into the soil of a potted plant to put them out, then relight as you need.
Caution: When using lit smudges, it is best to carry a fireproof container beneath them (such as a shell) to catch the embers! Otherwise you might soon be smoldering your carpet, which is not what we want.
Our sage is ideal for smudging. You light the end with a match or lighter, blow on it to encourage red little embers to grow, then feather the smoke around the home and body to "remove" or "burn off" negative energy.
Metaphysical Uses: This herb is considered holy in the Native American tradition. There are several varieties of sage, nearly all of which are smudged to drive out negativity and darkness. This is White Sage, considered in metaphysical circles to be the holiest. It is commonly used in prayers and cleansings.
