A beautiful combination of two worlds, both Blue & White Sage for cleansing & purification.
Ancient to present, Indigenous tribes worldwide were called to work with specific Sacred plants, native to their area, for purification & cleansing. These medicine bundles have been used for thousands of years in Ceremony and other rituals, to cleanse and release self and space from harmful or heavy energies.
The smoke of white sage is a bridge to higher realms, a way to call in our ancestors and guides. We must learn to honor this Sacred medicine, as it has been honored throughout time. It's smoke clears negative & heavy vibrations from self & Sacred space.
Blue Sage is used for cleansing, purification and protection while providing her gift of spiritual strength. We find that this type of sage burns a little cleaner and a little sweeter and therefore may be a better option than white sage if you have an aversion to the strong aroma of white sage. Many choose this option if the individual has a stronger sensitivity to smoke. It can be helpful for rituals and Ceremony of healing & abundance.
Instructions for use:
Set your intention, begin your Prayers and light the pointed end of your bundle with flame. Once the herbs are lit, gently blow out the flame. The smoke carries your prayers & intention during cleansing. Once completed, extinguish the lighted embers in a bowl of sand and offer a prayer of gratitude.
To preserve the herb bundle, you may also use a small amount of the leaf and place into a shell, or other fire-safe dish (no wood/plastic that could burn). Set your intention, begin your Prayers. Light the leaves and gently blow out the flame. This also prevents embers from falling onto self & belongings. Some choose to use a feather fan or single feather to help direct the smoke. Once the leaves turn to ash and no longer produce smoke, 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.
