Sage is used in rituals, ceremonies and or for spiritual and energetic cleansing. Smudging has been used for centuries to help people, places, or even objects get rid of negative energy or even bad spirits. White sage is often burned to create its intended effects.
Use sage to smudge your home, altar, office, yourself to cleanse & remove energy. Using sage is like using household bleach, it removes everything! That means it removes the good and the bad energy, so please keep aware that after using sage you must replace and fill the voided energy. Use essential oils, incense, etc. to replace the void with whatever your intention is. Love, peace, gratitude are all good replacements for the removed energy.
