Collection: SAGE

Burning sage also known as smudging  is an ancient spiritual ritual. Many other cultures around the world share similar rituals.

Sage  is used as a ritual tool to rid yourself or your space of negativity. This includes past traumas, bad experiences, or negative energies from others. It is also used to cleanse or empower you or your space, help improve your mood, help soothe stress and anxiety, improve the quality of your sleep, improve your memory and focus.
This may help you establish a positive environment for meditation or another ritual. Choosing to sit and let go of negative thoughts in a ritual like this sets your intention and dedication to self-improvement. Choosing to engage in ritual can be the beginning of your change in mindset.

prepare Sage Ritual

Before you start, make sure to open every window, closet, every drawer, and every cabinet in the entire house. Also, be sure to pull back curtains and open blinds so that window sills are accessible. Make sure you can easily move around the whole house without bumping into anything or having to stop to open drawers or doors. It is very important to perform a smudging ritual during the light of day, as the light will help burn away the negative energies with the smoke that will arise from the burning purifying items.


  • Do not use smudge-sticks near infants, birds, the very elderly, or individuals with sensitive respiratory systems. Birds are so sensitive that smoke can make them sick or even kill them.
  • Never leave burning smudge unattended.
  • Place some sand, soil, or even salt in the bottom of the container you are using to help extinguish all ash.

Say prayer if you wantBurning sage, cedar, and sweetgrass is designed to eradicate negative energy and either remove or weaken negative entities such as demons and nasty spirits. You may also want to say a prayer or perform a ritual of protection before you get started. The words of your prayer or incantation will vary depending on the type of cleansing you are attempting. Although this is not necessary, it is always better to be safe than sorry. Additionally, if you have a protection amulet, talisman, or gemstone on hand, you can wear or hold on to that as well.

To begin the Sage ceremony, light the sage, sweetgrass, or cedar. (Remember to keep a dish under the burning herbs to catch any ash.) If you are having problems keeping it lit, occasionally blow on it to keep the embers burning. You want to continue to coax the flame until you get a steady smoke.
