Californian White Sage Smudge Sticks are commonly used during Smudging ceremonies. Smudging is used to clear away negative energies within beings and objects. Many Native American tribes have traditionally used Sage among other herbs to cleanse their Aura’s and Inner beings during ceremonial acts, often relating to letting go of the old and inviting in the new.
Many choose to burn the stick as a whole but it is common to break off some dried leaves from the stick to burn within an Abalone shell or another suitable holder, simply using their hands of a smudge feather to direct the smoke to where you wish the energies to be cleansed.
Smudging is a vital part of caring for your crystals, simply light the sage on one end and pass the various crystals through the smoke field while visioning the negative energies within ‘evacuating the crystal’ and being neutralised. You can also use this method to cleanse your auric field, inner being as well as everyday objects and your home.
