White sage is used for smudging, cleansing & purification. Native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, it is found mainly in the coastal sage scrub habitat of Southern California and Baja California, on the western edges of the Mojave and Sonoran desert.
Smudging is a ritual way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies, spirits or influences. The smudging ceremony involves the burning of special, sacred plants and herbal resins. Then, either passing an object through the resulting smoke or fanning the smoke around a person or place. The spirit of the plant then purifies whatever is being smudged.
***Please note ~ Do not leave animals or humans in a smokey home as it could cause breathing problems. Do not leave burning smudge unattended.***
