Create a calming atmosphere at home with this lovely combination of white and blue sage. White sage is a classic herb for smudging. In general, this already cleanses the room sufficiently, but in combination with other herbs it can be more beneficial. Here it is enhanced with blue sage.
Although white and blue sage come from the same family, they do differ. White sage is more popular and is often used for smudging. It has a recognizable sharp scent with which you can cleanse the space with and attract positive energy. It also has a calming effect.
The blue sage is less common, but it has almost the same effects as the white sage. It also cleanses and protects the space. However, the fragrance is a bit softer and more pleasant than the white sage. This makes it more suitable to cleanse a yoga or meditation room shortly before the session.
How to use your Smudge Stick: Light the end of your sage stick and after it has ignited, extinguish the flame and direct the smoke around the area you wish to cleanse. You may wish to hold a container or shell in your other hand to catch ashes or to serve as a resting place for the smouldering stick if you use a fan or a feather to direct the smoke. You can direct the smoke around yourself, another person, or in your room to clear the energy. To extinguish your sage stick, smother the end and examine closely to make sure the stick is completely out. Your smudge stick may continue to burn if not completely extinguished. A lit sage stick should not be left burning while not attended, and lots care should be used to extinguishing smouldering smudge sticks properly.
