White Sage Stick

White sage smudge stick

Smudging is a ceremony practiced by various cultures around the world and is the common name given to the indigenous American tradition known as the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing.

This is a powerful spiritual cleansing technique which calls upon the spirits of various sacred plants to drive away negative energy and to restore balance to an individual, a group, a space, or all three.  This tradition has been a part of the spirituality of indigenous Americans for thousands of years and has only come into the general Western consciousness in the past few decades.

Burning white sage or smudging is well known for its ability to purify and cleanse and is considered to be the most scared of all the smudging herbs.
