How to Burn Sage:
Before burning sage, some recommend setting intentions if smudging for spiritual, energetic, and negativity clearing purposes. Remove animals or people from the room.
It’s also important to leave a window open before, during, and after smudging. This allows smoke to escape.
Some believe smoke also takes impurities and negative energy with it — so don’t skip this step.
Never leave burning sage unattended. Make sure to put your sage bundle out completely after every use.
Keep in mind: Burning sage is a sacred religious practice in some Native American cultures. Treat the ritual with respect.
