Californian White Sage Smudge stick (salvia apiana) approximately 10 - 12cm (4"-5") long. Sacred herb for the native North Americans. Herbal incense, coming directly from the plant, used to burn and eliminate negative energies. Helps purify the environment, attracting positive energies, while giving a pleasant and intense aroma.
Our white sage comes in a smudge stick of around 3cm in diameter. In the same way as in ancient times, it comes in a dry form so that it can be smoked. The fragrance left by its smoke is used in aromatherapy and in energy rituals.
To be able to perform the ritual at home, you have to light the white sage at one end, until you see a flame, then blow it out so that the herbs gives its smoke. The smoke must be spread throughout all the rooms of the house to clean the environment in all areas. After burning the White Sage it must be placed in a fireproof plate until it is finished burning.
American Indians liked to bring the four elements together for their cleansing rituals: water, wind, earth, and fire. A shell represents the element of water, sage herbs the earth, combustion fire and smoke the wind.
