White Sage (Salvia Apiana), not to be mistaken for the garden variety Salvia Officinalis, is a common and ideal smudging plant used for healing and cleansing. Sage clears negativity inside and outside ourselves, our aura, from our house, room, office, or any other type of structure. White sage also has a strong, herbal smell. Smudging itself is an ancient practice used for healing, and white sage was used as a prime material in rituals, ceremonies and energy cleansing. Each of these fantastic smudging wands, or smudge sticks consists of bundled and tightly wrapped sage. It is usually burned at one end to create a fragrant, purifying smoke that can help remove negative energy, bad spirits, and other such forces from your life.
