CLEANSING & SMUDGING FAQS

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CLEANSING?

Cleansing has been practised by cultures around the world since ancient times, notably by Native Americans. Cleansing and smudging rituals are performed today to banish evil spirits and remove negative energies and thus purifying spaces, objects and even people. Some also perform smudging ceremonies to ease stress, anxiety and simply because it creates a pleasant aromatic atmosphere. Burning cleansing herbs can also remove unwanted smells from pets and dust.

HOW DO I CLEANSE MY HOME WITH WHITE SAGE?

To cleanse your home with white sage you will need:

  • loose sage or a sage wand
  • A lighter or match
  • A smudge bowl or abalone shell
Instructions:
  1. First, prepare your tools and your space. Open your windows to allow the smoke to escape and direct the banished energies away. Ensure that you hold your intentions strongly in your mind and that you're in a cheerful mood, a negative emotional state can cancel out any cleansing properties of the ritual.

  2. Prepare your smudge bowl to collect the ash-some choose to use an abalone shell to hold their sage and a feather to fan the smoke but a smudge bowl and your hand are fine substitutes.

  3. Ensure your sage hasn't been packed too tightly as it will need space for the oxygen to flow and allow the flame to catch.

  4. Light your sage and let it burn for around 20 seconds before blowing out the flame. You will see the embers glow and begin to smoke. If the smoking stops, reignite it by blowing gently on the wand.

  5. Walk around your home, passing the smoke over objects and rooms you wish to cleanse. Make your way clockwise or anticlockwise around your space depending on what your intuition tells you.

  6. Finish your ritual by ensuring your sage has been completely extinguished. Store any leftovers in a dry place away from sunlight.
