Here we have a salvia apiana white sage smoke cleansing stick. Salvia apiana is an evergreen shrub that is native to southern California. People have burned the leaves of this shrub for its spiritual and purifying properties, for many centuries. As a result, this smoke cleansing stick is believed to lift spirits and ease emotional turmoil. Native American cultures revere white sage as one of their sacred plants. It is therefore important to buy sustainably to prevent over-harvesting (please see the important information tab).
Never leave a burning white sage smoke cleansing stick unattended. Only ever place in a heatproof container and do not place the container on a flammable surface. Keep away from children and pets and do not ingest. Dispose of safely.

Smoke cleansing is closely tied to the spiritual practice of smudging by Native American / Indigenous Nations. White sage, palo santo, sweetgrass, and many other plants used for burning are considered sacred medicine by the Native American / Indigenous Nations. It is, therefore, essential that to avoid cultural appropriation and exploitation that you understand the cultural history of these items. As well as the history of suppression forced upon these native populations, where they were forbidden to practice their culture, language, and traditions, including smudging, until 1978 and the passage of the American Indian Religious Freedom Act. Even with the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, Native American / Indigenous Nations still find themselves continually persecuted for various reasons. When purchasing sage and other plants used for burning, it is essential to ensure that they are ethically sourced and that there is no over-harvesting of these sacred medicines. And where possible, always support the Native American and Indigenous Nations.
Light the top of this smoke cleansing stick and lightly fan it to extinguish any flames and allow the leaves to smolder gently. Holding it over a heatproof container walk through your space. Start at the door of the space to be cleared and move in either the direction in which the door opens (if the door opens into the room) or in a clockwise direction. Allow the smoke to fill the space as you move around the room, ensuring it reaches all corners and areas of the room, clearing negative energies and replacing them with a positive flow. You may fan the smoke with your hand or a feather. As you walk around the space doing this, you are systematically sweeping all the negative energy out of the door.
