Bay leaves have an elaborate history dating back thousands of years by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Bay leaf is utilized for its energetic cleansing properties to banish negative, harmful, or unwanted energies and feelings from yourself, your space and other people. It is useful for calming anxious feelings and for protection. The smoke of white sage is a bridge to higher realms, a way to call in our ancestors and guides for assistance.

Bay Leaf (Laurus nobilis), Cultivated White Sage (Salvia apiana)

Set your intention, and give thanks. Begin your Prayers and light the pointed end of your bundle with flame. (earth & fire elements). Once the herb bundle is mindfully lit, gently blow out the flame. The smoke carries your prayers & intention during cleansing. To preserve the herb bundle or reduce the amount of smoke, you may also use a small amount of the leaf and place into a shell (which represents water), or other fire-safe dish (no wood/plastic that could burn). A ritual bowl can also prevent embers from falling onto self & belongings. Some choose to use a feather fan or single feather to help direct the smoke (honoring the element of air). When done, extinguish the lighted embers in a bowl of sand and offer a prayer of gratitude. If using indoors, please be sure to open a window or door so that the energies may be released from your Sacred space upon completion.
