how to use sage smudge stick
how to sage your house to clear negative energy.
- preparation; gather your tools and open an airway path
ensure you have all the necessary tools handy and that you have opened a door or window before lighting up. after all, that negativity (not to mention smoke) needs to have a pathway to get out.
here is what you will need to get started:
- a vessel for burning sage (small bowl or large seashell)
- a fire source (such as a long match or candle)
- a fanning tool could be helpful if you need to cover a large area such as a home or office.
- set your intention and say a mantra.
take a moment before you light the sage to determine what exactly it is that you are trying to purify or release from your space. then, decide on a mantra to repeat while saging that encapsulates this intention. it can be something you come up with on your own, or for a little guidance, Giselle Wasfie, doctor of Chinese medicine and founder of REMIX Acupuncture & Integrative Health, suggests, “I let go and release what no longer serves me.”
- light up
before burning, open the doors or windows
once you’re ready, hold the sage at a 45-degree angle, light the end of the sage bundle with a match or candle, and let it burn for about 20 seconds (blow it out quickly if it catches on fire). after that, gently blow out the flame so you see orange embers on one end. the smoke should now billow up.
- slowly walk around your space.
the tips should smolder slowly, releasing thick smoke. slowly walk around your space and allow the smoke to waft around. guide the smoke—and the bad energy—toward the open windows or a door, so it can escape.
give special attention to areas in front of mirrors, in corners, and in spaces like foyers, hallways, and doorways, and technology like our phones or laptops.
allow the ash to collect in a ceramic bowl or shell. the resulting smoke smudges need about an hour to cleanse the air in the room and the properties in the smoke to kill most of the existing bacteria in the air. burning sage is said to be safe for both kids and pets.
- be safe!
always stay present! if you see little embers fall on the ground, tamp them out immediately. never let the burning sage stay unattended for any reason. take care not to inhale the smoke.
- extinguish your sage
once you are ready to extinguish a sage smudge stick, press the burning tip firmly into your fireproof vessel, dirt, or sand until the smoke no longer rises. pro tip: Don’t get it wet! Don’t use water to extinguish the hot embers—it will ruin the tip of the stick and make it harder to light next time. when you are done using the smudge stick, you can keep it in a vessel until you are ready to use it again.
burning sage should be done with intention, reverence, and deep gratitude to those who did it before us.
