Used to encourage dreams and visions, Black Sage is an herb of introspection and inner healing. When burnt before bedtime, it aids in restful sleep and pleasant dreams. Black Sage is used for astral travel, shamanic journeying, and for protection during such excursions.
Black Sage won’t cause you to “trip” or wildly hallucinate. At most, it may intensify your efforts at visualization and vivify your dreams. Even so, some people (like pregnant women and straight-edgers) should avoid using Black Sage.
The use of sage to cleanse a home is deeply rooted in Native American history. They used sage for many purposes, including healing, energy cleansing, to remove negative energy and ritual ceremonies. Historically, medicine people used sage cleansing on people who were ill, to bring them back from the negative space where their body and soul resided at that point. Today, Native Americans use it in sage cleansing ceremonies for those who are seeking balance and pure thoughts.
Use sage to cleanse a home frequently. Sage Cleansing can help to create an environment filled with positive energy and to remove all the harmful and negative energies.
How to use:
Burn your Smudge stick and let the smoke permeate and cleanse. Waft the Smudge smoke with the feather so that the smoke cleanses the entire room. Once done, snuff out the fire against an abalone shell, store away in a pouch and save for later use.
**Please make sure that a smudge stick is COMPLETELY out before leaving the area unattended**
Burning Instructions: Light the wand from the top end and place the burning wand on a safe surface.
Keep out of reach of children, animals and flammable material.
Setting Your Intention:
While you are cleansing your space, crystals, or your jewelry, make sure that you keep a strong and focused intention in mind. Feel free to say a prayer, call on Angels, Spirit, or any other God, or Goddess to assist you to cleanse and purify your space while setting your intention.
