White Sage Smudge Stick


California White Sage smudge bundle that is tied in colored twine.

White Sage (Salvia Apiana), also known as California White Sage is an evergreen perennial shrub with whitish-green leaves. It is one of the sacred plants used for smudging. The heady aromatic smoke of burning White Sage is considered cleansing, purifying and protective. 

Smudging is a wonderful ancient tradition practiced by many indigenous cultures throughout the world, most notably Native American cultures. To smudge is to purify people, places, spaces and objects with a cleansing 'bath' of smoke from certain burning herbs. Smudging is used for prayer, rituals and ceremonies. 

Please make sure that a smudge stick is completely out before leaving the area unattended.
