You can find out more below about how you can benefit from the practice of burning sage. 

Why Burn Sage?

The main reason why people burn sage is to help them with cleansing and healing.

If you have recently moved house or if you are looking to cleanse your house after you have had guests, the practice of burning sage can help you to get rid of any negative energy that has been left behind, leaving you with a fresh new space. 

Humans are prone to feeling different energies, especially ones that are slightly unusual or uncomfortable.

Therefore, burning sage has become a way in which people can reclaim their space by dismissing any energy that has been left in the room that doesn’t match their own. 

Where Should You Burn Sage?

You can feel the benefits of burning sage anywhere, from your home to your office space.

People mostly burn sage in their homes as it is a way to make sure that their space matches their energy, and any negative energy is gone to help them feel more comfortable. 

What Sage Should You Use?

It is best to use white sage to do sage cleansing in your home as you need it to be in the form of a stick.

White sage is already bound together, so it is perfect to use for sage cleansing as you can easily hold it. It needs to be tightly wrapped together to make sure that none of the sage falls out when you are using it. 

If you use garden sage that has been dried, you will need to use a lot of it to get the same effect as white sage. You will also need to wrap it together tightly, which can take a lot of time.

White sage is often already wrapped together, so you do not need to do it yourself.

Work Out What You Want From The Cleanse

For the cleanse to work well, you need to make sure that you are clear with what you want from it. Do you want to get rid of negative energy?

Do you want to get rid of any previous energy in a new property? This will help you to understand why you are doing the cleanse and help you feel more connected to your space.  

Open All Of The Windows

You need to let fresh air come inside when you are sage cleansing your home.

This will not only prevent the smoke from becoming too powerful, but you will also be letting fresh energy into your home. It will also help to keep you cool when you are cleansing as the smoke may make your home hotter. 

Light The Sage

You need to be careful lighting the sage as you are dealing with fire, so safety is incredibly important. Make sure that you do not drop the stick when it is lit as this could cause a fire.

Hold the sage with the bottom facing up. You should light the bottom of the sage as the top is too hard, so it is difficult to light.  

The sage stick shouldn’t be on fire, it should only have smoke coming from it. If there are lit flames on the sage, blow them out gently until it is only producing smoke. 

Begin To Cleanse The Rooms

Make sure that you are carrying a fire-resistant plate around with you at all times during the cleanse to catch any ash that falls from the sage stick. If the ash falls to the ground, it could start a fire.

Keep the tray underneath the lit sage stick at all times. 

Start with the room that is furthest away and work your way around the house. Keep the bottom of the sage stick pointing upwards to that the smoke is pointing up.

Wave the sage stick in the air and make sure that you cleanse the corners and the doorways of the rooms. 

Make sure that you cleanse the whole room, especially the windows. These are areas where there is lots of traffic and people walking past, so there is the opportunity for lots of different energies to enter your home. 

Cleanse The Front Door

Make sure that you cleanse the front door to prevent any more energy from entering.

Once the ash has cooled, you can place a bit on your doorstep to keep your positive energy inside and prevent negative energy from finding its way into your home. 

Clap Your Hands Around The House

Walk around your home and clap your hands to get rid of any energy that is lingering in the rooms after the cleanse.

The loud noises will get rid of the negative energies so that you can feel more comfortable in your home. 

Final Thoughts

To conclude, doing a sage cleanse in your home can help you to get rid of any lingering negative energy that you want to get rid of. It is very beneficial and can help you to feel more comfortable in your home.

As you are dealing with smoke, it is important to open the windows up, and you need to be safe with the lit sage by holding a fire-resistant plate underneath it at all times.
