White Sage is an herb native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. Burned for generations in Native American rituals, White Sage releases a thick, earthy smoke that can be used to dispel negative and positive energy, offering a clean slate. It is perfect to burn when transitioning to a new home or job. White sage can be burned while holding in your hand and using as a smidge stick to waft the smoke over yourself or around your home, or can be placed in abalone Shell and left to burn as incense. It will burn itself out after a few minutes or can be tamped out in the Shell if desired. Our White Sage comes from Northern California and is sustainably harvested. We get White Sage shipments every other month, and store it in airtight containers to maintain its freshness. This item includes one 4” bound white sage smudge stick.
