Sage Smudge Sticks
- Light the end of your sage stick and, after it has ignited, extinguish the flame and allow the stick to smoulder.
- 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 a feather, the smoke can be directed around yourself, another person, your home or place of ceremony to purify the energy that is present.
- The smoke from your sage stick may also be directed to honour the four directions, the father Sun and the mother Earth.
- To extinguish your sage stick, stub it out in your container as you would a cigarette and examine closely to make sure the stick is completely out.
- Your stick may continue to burn if not completely extinguished.
- We ask that you burn these sticks in peace and with an open heart. Thank you.
