These 5" sage smudges are produced by Sage Spirit.

These Sage Spirit Sticks are made with sage from New Mexico and combined with sweetgrass. All sticks are wrapped with 100% cotton yarn for safe and healthful burning. Each ingredient is considered a sacred herb for centuries by Native Americans in their "smudging" ceremonies. "Smudging" is the name given to the burning of these herbs for the purposes of cleansing and sending our prayers. Today, people are "smudging" to receive the benefits known to generations of our Native American brothers and sisters.

Caution: A lit sage stick should not be left burning while unattended, and care should be used when extinguishing smoldering sticks.

Directions for use:
Light the end of your sage stick and after it has ignited, extinguish the flame and direct the smoke around your body. You may wish to hold a container in your other hand to catch ashes or to serve as a resting place for the smoldering stick if you use a fan or feather to direct the smoke. You can direct the smoke around yourself, another person, or in your place of ceremony to purify the energy that is present. The smoke from your sage stick may also be directed as an invocation, honoring the four directions, the father sun and the mother earth ("fathermother god"). To extinguish your sage stick, smother the end and examine closely to make sure the stick is completely out. Note: your stick may continue to burn if not completely extinguished. We at Sage Spirit ask that you burn these sticks in peace and with an open heart. Thank you.
