PSE 4 INCHES SAGE STICKS
Understanding why people Burn Sage.
People have burned sage for its cleansing and medicinal properties since times immemorial.
Many believe that the smoke can purify a space and chase out negative energy.
Many of the benefits are spiritual and psychological–but there is a physical component.
On a spiritual level: Many people use sage burning and smudging to connect with ancestral tradition. It is a common belief that the strong scent of sage can purge the negative energy from a room, a home, and a heart.
On a psychological level: The act of burning sage can mark a beginning, a resolution, a turning-over of a new leaf. When you accept the time-honored ritual and put your faith in the power of burnt sage, you can purge yourself of negativity and find true peace of mind.
On a physical level: Sage releases negative ions into the air when it is burned, and research suggests that exposure to negative ions may correlate to lower rates of depression. The strength of this correlation is still unclear, but know that sage at least has not been shown to have any negative effect.
It depends on your personal ritual and the reason for smudging.
Removing negative entities or cleansing your home may take a few times or more to complete. Afterwards, you can burn sage weekly or monthly to maintain good energy. Follow your intuition.
