Sage is used whenever you feel the need to cleanse, balance or purify yourself, others, a room, a car, your crystals or other personal tools.
To Smudge – Light bundle or leaves, set the lit sage before you in a heat resistant place.
Rub your hands in the smoke, gather the smoke and bring it over yourself as if washing your body.

To Smudge a Building or Room – Begin at the front door, open a door or window a crack and move counterclockwise around the entire room or dwelling circling back to the front door.
This ritual is now complete.
