Burning sage and other herbs is like taking an energetic shower. We call this practice smudging. The smoke clears the space around us, setting the stage for our meditation practice. Burning sage, palo santo, incense and many other smudges is a practice used in many cultures and we use it often here at The Wild Sage Collective. Find the one that calls to you and use it to energetically cleanse yourself, another, a space, or an object.
