White sage (Salvia Apiana) is a sacred herb used to cleanse, purify, protect, attract prosperity, and more.
The tradition of using white sage to banish and ward off evil spirits was started by Native Americans.
White sage is primarily used for smudging. Smudging is the act of burning sage and directing the smoke in areas of your space that need cleansing and protection. White sage can also be used for home blessings as well as banishing entities from spaces. (make sure you're protected and know what you're doing when dealing with entities !)
Smudging can also be done on yourself by beginning at the crown chakra (over the top of your head) down to Chakra Zero (the feet chakra) in order to give the energies you no longer desire to Mother Gaia Earth for transmutation.
While smudging, you can say a prayer, special mantra, or invoke your Divine Team for extra help.
White sage can also be used to cleanse crystals !
You can also find white sage in my Smudge Kit.
White sage can also be burned as a sleep and stress relief aid. Be aware that white sage CLEARS ALL energy both positive and negative. It will be up to you to cultivate the kind of energy in your space and within yourself that you would like.
When burning , DO NOT put out the sage on its own. White sage has a spirit of its own, just like every other plant and will stop burning on its own when all negativity is cleared out of your space. White sage should be left in a smudge bowl or Abalone Shell until it turns off on its own.
