ABOUT: Salvia apiana, or white sacred sage is an evergreen plant native to the Southwest, widely used by Native Americans in various ceremonies. Equally effective at filling your apartment with a cleansing, calming aroma.
The ritual of sage burning has its roots in Native American tradition. Today, people burn sage and other holy herbs to cleanse a space or environment of negative energy, to generate wisdom and clarity, and to promote healing. Intention is everything with this ritual, so before you light up, ask yourself what you’re trying to purify and/or heal from or release — in your space and in yourself.
PRODUCT: Sold in a pack of two.
HOW TO USE: Burn a candle, set an intention, and then light the sage using the candle. “Blow it out so the embers are glowing. After clearing and cleansing, extinguish your sage stick by gently pressing it into a clay dish, glass bowl or abalone shell . You can also allow it to burn out on its own. Some people like to wait 20-30 minutes to allow the sage smoke to reach maximum potency. Then, open any windows and your front door to let all of that stuck energy out.
Always use caution and respect when working with fire.
