Growing up in the Arizona desert, sage grew bountifully. It's not at all uncommon to have a sage bush or two grow wild in your yard! Smudging has been a ritual of mine for many years, especially since I was taught the proper and respectful way to burn it. Surrounded by the beautiful Native American culture in Arizona, I learned to appreciate the sacredness of smudging and I continue to educate the correct practice of energy clearing. Our ethically sourced white sage is the perfect way to cleanse yourself, your space, and clean the air of up to 94% bacteria!
TOP BENEFITS OF SMUDGING
White sgae can treat sinus infections. You can inhale the aroma given off a burning white sage bundle for a few minutes, or you can drink it as a tea. However you do it, it’s the compound called “eucalyptol” also known as 1,8-cineole that when inhaled, reduces painful sinus inflammation. It may kill the associated pathogens too! That’s pretty amazing considering the side effects of prescribed antibiotics and antihistamines.
Calms a sore throat. Sage leaf tea is a proven strategy for alleviating a sore throat, at least according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Plant Guide. Sage tea can reduce mucous secretions of the sinuses, throat, and lungs.
Provides cleansing energy. Sage helps remove negative energy in your space. Smudging is the quickest way to receive the healing/cleansing benefits because when you inhale, the compounds go straight to your bloodstream and brain.
Cleans the air. Burning sage (aka smudging) can clean the air in a room of up to 94% bacteria, according to recent studies.
