White Sage (Salvia Apiana) is believed to cleanse a space of any evil spirits or negative energies that may be present. This power is said to be released from the plant by the burning of the leaves, which are typically bundled into a wand or stick.
Today many Native American tribes still use the stems and leaves for smudging as part of purification ceremonies. The practice has also been adopted by many for general spiritual uses, as an incense and for smudging or for purification.
The preferred herb for smudging, this loose form of the herb is perfect for smoldering over a charcoal or offering directly into a fire. The smoke is used to neutralize the energy of an area. Good for cleansing and rituals of healing, blessings, prosperity, protection or any purpose. Also good in mojo bags and homemade incense blends.
