White Sage is used to cleanse spaces, houses, rooms or environments of any kinds of subtle, old energies and prepare the space with fresh intent.

It is also used to cleanse the aura of a person from stuck old energies to prepare for ceremony or spiritual work. It is also cleansing and healing when drunk internally as a tea. White Sage is also used for cleansing objects for use in ceremony or when calling or looking inward for higher guidance. It is very good for cleansing crystals.

Curiosity: The Native Americans used White Sage as a flavouring in their food and as a medicinal plant, they also used it to make “smudge sticks,” a kind of incense. Sage leaves were bundled together, then burned – the idea being that the resulting smoke drove away evil spirits and purified anyone who was present. Traditional Algonquian First Nations culture used smudge sticks when sending prayers to the Great Spirit.
