This is a large bundle of white sage from the coastal mountains of California, and with its broad leaf it possesses strong aromatic properties.
Size: approx 8 inches
Cleansing your home:
Light the sage stick and blow out the flame until you have a smouldering ember giving off a strong white smoke. Carry the stick around the space to be cleared, paying particular attention to the corners, sweeping the stick away from your body in a single consistent direction. This will push negative energy out of the space. A good idea is to push the stick towards an open door or window, to banish negativity well away from your environment.
When using a lit stick carry a plate or something heat proof under it to catch any ash that may fall from the stick. The stick can be extinguished by placing it in sand or soil in a container (never directly into the earth). As long as they are kept dry, they can be re-lit another time.
