Smudging crystals and your home as a way to cleanse is a method of purification used traditionally by Native Americans. It’s a great way to disinfect the air around you as it is known to clear up to 94% of airborne bacteria and it releases negative ions which can put you in a positive mood. So get some sage, burn it, clear any negative energy and put a smile on that dial...then tell your neighbour to do the same thing!
Sage is an incredible spiritual cleansing technique which calls upon the spirits of sacred plants to remove any negative energy and to restore balance to an individual, a group, a space or a crystal.
To begin the cleanse, light the tip of the smudge stick and allow to smoulder in the areas you’re wishing to cleanse, paying special attention to corners and behind doors.
You can hold the stones close to the stream of the smoke, or simply hold your smudge stick near to where they are sitting so the air around them is full of the sage essence.
During this process, I think it is important to think, chant, speak, hum, sing or envision negative energies being removed and cleared
When you have finished smudging, return the sage stick to a fireproof bowl and let it burn out naturally.
These sticks are approx. 20cms long
