Sage Smudge Stick

How To Use

Intentions are central to the practice of smudging, so take a moment before you light the sage to determine what exactly it is that you're trying to purify or release from your space. Then, decide on a mantra or pray that encapsulates this intention

Once you're ready, light your sage smudge stick using your match, and let it burn for about 20 seconds. After that, gently blow out the flame so you see orange embers on one end. The smoke should now billow up.

Slowly walk around your space, allow the smoke to waft around. Guide the smoke, and the negative energy toward the open windows or a door, so it can escape.

Take care with flames and flammable objects and surfaces.

 Always stay present! If you see little embers fall on the ground, tamp them out immediately. Never let the burning sage stay unattended for any reason. Also, take care not to inhale too much of the smoke.

Once you're ready to extinguish a sage smudge stick, press the burning tip firmly into your fireproof vessel, dirt, or sand until the smoke no longer rises.
