5 Benefits Of Burning Sage
Here's Why You Should Cleanse Your Space From Negative Energy Using Sage, Palo Santo, And Other Types Of Smudge Sticks.
1. A 2006 study on smudging revealed that burning sage, Palo Santo, and other medicinal herbs can help to eliminate up to 94% of airborne bacteria such as mold spores, odors, viruses, dust and other germs living in your space. It’s like spring cleaning for your home, get refreshed and rejuvenated with clean air on a daily basis. Smudging can help to purify and cleanse your room spiritually and literally.
2. Burning sage or palo santo can help to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, grief, or depression when smudging. The negative ions can help to “normalize serotonin levels”, a hormone that is known to boost your mood and increase a sense of calm, peace, and mental focus.
3. Cleanse the negative energies that flow in and around your body. Smudging, in a spiritual sense, helps to reset and eliminate any negative energies that flow around you and help you to operate on a high frequency or vibration. Create your intentions and blessings for a new home, interview, your career, birthday celebration, grief, or even an intention for a new day.
4. A quick, easy way to break into a meditative state is through smudging. Sometimes, you don’t have 20 or even 10 minutes to sit down and fall into a deep meditative, calming state. Smudging is a wonderful alternative for those in-between days. Similar to the effect you feel when stepping out into natures or sitting on the beach and watching the waves crash down, burning these medicinal herbs produces similar negative ions that boost your mood and place you in a meditative, calm, and peaceful state in less than 5 minutes. It’s the perfect way to start or end your day.
5. Burning sage and other herbs can help to lessen the EMF static and chaos in the air from our electronics. EMFs can interfere with the subtle energies surrounding the body which can lead to fatigue, poor sleep, headaches, a low immune system, a lack of clarity or focus, and other symptoms caused by EMF.
Smudging or burning incense is an ancient ritual that has been around for hundreds of years amongst Native Americans and many other cultures.
Burning sage, palo santo, or other medicinal herbs are known to produce negative ions that can help to improve sleep, calm the mind, increase focus, kill bacteria, and help to “create a more positive outlook on life.”

This is packaged beautifully. It would be a great gift for someone. Super pretty. The added crystal is crazy and I don’t see how they can do this at this price. It’s substantial and something you would pay for on its own. The burn is very nice and goes out when you put it down. Great tight bundles that can be used over and over. The cedar stick is AMAZING and makes the house smell like a winter fireplace. It’s heaven . My favorite random purchase this year. Love, love it!

What are 10 ways I can cleanse my space & raise my vibration ?
Here are 10 simple ways to cleanse your space to start or end your day in a calm, balanced, and positive state:
- De-clutter. Clean out your physical and digital space. Choose one space that makes you feel stressed out or anxious and let go of what no longer serves you. Whether it's your inbox or bedroom, find a few things to delete or throw away. We always recommending smudging your space before and after you do a major de-clutter.
- Practice gratitude. Start your morning expressing gratitude for 3 things that you're grateful for, describe them in detail, feel the gratitude...
- Cleanse your space with the smoke from sage, palo santo, or other medicinal herbs used for cleansing and purifying the air around you.
- Get out in nature. Go on a walk or go to the park and feel the sunshine on you.
- Use sound. Find a singing bowl to purify your space.
- Listen to music.
- Meditate. Spend 10 minutes visualize your day and how you want it to feel - do you want to feel productive? Effortless? Confident? Successful?
- Read a book.
- Spend time with your favorite healing crystals and repeat your favorite affirmation or intention.
- Drink a warm cup of tea and spend a few minutes journaling.
What is smudging?
Smudging is the act of burning sacred herbs, flowers, and other medicinal plants with powerful healing properties to cleanse and purify the air in and around your space. This practice has been around for hundreds of years and used by different cultures to clear negative energy. It helps to re-energize, restore, and balance you or your space with peace, calmness, and positivity. A recent study also showed that burning medicinal herbs helped to kill 94% of airborne bacteria for up to an hour or more.
A smudge stick is created by bundling together dried herbs such as sage, sweetgrass, or lavender. These herbs have healing properties that absorb toxins and negative energy. Tying the herbs together with a string or any flammable material intensifies the smoke. As you burn the smoke, it attaches to the negative energy in the room and helps to remove it. You'll notice a real difference after burning a smudge stick, both in the way you feel and in the way the room you've purified feels.
It's not required to bind the herbs together in a stick, of course. You can burn the loose herbs to get a similar purifying result. However, bundling the herbs as a stick lets you move the herbs about the room easily, directing the smoke wherever you want it. You can use your hand or a feather to waft the sacred smoke throughout the space.
How often should I smudge or cleanse my space?
You can smudge when you wake up, before you go to bed, for special occasions or holidays, before an interview - whatever feels right to you - or, whenever you’re in need of bringing peace and positivity into your space.
The energy around you is constantly changing. It’s important to check in and cleanse your space on a regular basis, especially when you’re feeling the need to re-ground and re-center yourself in today’s digital world and busy lifestyles.
Similar to washing your hands, it's important to cleanse and purify the air around you on a regular basis to keep your space cleansed, grounded, and purified.
Is your sage sustainably harvested?
We do our very best to respect Mother Nature and the wonderful gifts that she has provided us with. Choosing all natural sage is extremely important to us. The sage is carefully picked when the weather has become steadily warm-to-hot and the growing cycle is coming into the full flowering season to ensure that the smoke from our white sage is potent and thriving.
It is at this point during the plant's cycle that it becomes possible to create new seeds for regeneration to keep the harvest sustainable. Also, when the heat drives down the plant's water-to-oils content ratio, the smoke from from the sage has the strongest potency.
Handpicked in California by a member of First Nation’s American Metis, our sage is carefully harvested during the optimal time of the plant’s growth. The fields are blessed yearly to give our thanks and we ask for the blessing of all good things to come from harvesting the newly matured leaf-clusters. Sage should always be harvested properly with love, blessings, and sustainability in mind.
