Sage Smudge Stick



Sage smudge sticks are used for clearing negative & stress energy, whether that be an object, a room, a house or even yourself.

It works by burning the end of the smudge and then distinguishing out the flame to release the smoke. To learn more about how to sage please see descriptive notes below.

Sage also has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, this means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, dust and mold at bay.

They are also thought to release negative ions in which is said to help neutralise positive ions, in which could help people who suffer with asthma, allergies, bronchitis & other respiratory conditions.

*Please note though inhaling the smoke during the smudging can aggravate any respiratory conditions, so wait until the smoke clears before going into the room.


“Before you start”

Set intentions if smudging for spiritual & negativity clearing purposes.
Remove animals or people from the room.
leave window open before, during & after smudging, this allows smoke to escape.
It’s believed smoke also takes the impurities and negative energy with it – so don’t skip this step.

Step 2
“Burning Sage”

Light the end of the sage bundle with a match.
let it burn for a few seconds, then blow out the flame to release the smoke.
the tips of the leaves should smolder slowly, releasing thick smoke.
Direct this smoke around your body / space / object.
Allow the incense to linger on the areas you’d like to focus on.

To extinguish, gently press it into your ceramic bowl or shell, or can let it burn out.

Step 3
“Cleansing yourself”

It’s a good idea to cleanse yourself before you start.
Set your intentions to clear away any low vibrations, negative energy and all blockages.
Choose 1 thing to especially release and remove. (maybe to do with a relationship, a worry, or something you just cant forgive)

With both hands bring the smoke into your heart, over your head and down the front and back of the body to cleanse yourself.

“Cleansing your home or living area”

Starting on the lowest level of your space, move room to room and use your hand or a feather to waft the smoke into all four corners, where the ceiling and walls meet.
Then direct the smoke out through windows and doorways.

“How to cleanse an object”

Direct smoke around and over the object of your choice.

This can be down to a new item, such as jewelry, furniture or clothing to protect or dispel it of negative energy.

Items related to negative experiences or memories may also be smudged.
