Sage has been traditionally used in native nations in North America for generations. It can be used as incense or for smudging self, items, for space clearing, house clearing, cleansing crystals, and ritual preparation.
Smudging is the practice of burning sacred herbs/resins for bringing cleansing, purification and clarity to a sacred space periodically and before performing spells, rituals, divination and any spiritual practice/light work. The sacred smoke cleanses any dense or negative energies to purify the energy in the energy to be used for positive and higher intentions.
About Californian White Sage
The home of Californian white sage (Salvia Alpine), a scrub plant with spiky flowers, is along the sun-washed coastline of Southern California.
Sage is a cleansing and purifying herb and can be used to help break up feelings of negativity. Traditionally, it’s regarded as being able to open people up and bring about the ability to have a greater connection with the sacred world.
Its properties make it ideal for use in cleansing and clearing ceremonies of people, places and objects, as well as for meditation or prayer. People wanting to build a closer spiritual connection may also benefit from burning or carrying the herb.
More About Juniper Ridge
Juniper Ridge started as a company at a farmers market at Berkeley, California in 1998. And everything they make comes from the mountains or the deserts of western USA. They are obsessed with natural aromatics and also obsessed with the preservation of the wilderness. All of their aromatics and herbs come from the wild and are always sustainably and responsibly harvested. They donate 10% of their profits to defending western wildernesses.
They never kill the plants they harvest. They instead prune larger shrubs and trees that respond well to pruning. They often revist the same plants as previous years to check up on them. For the sages they always trim the clusters at the green stem, above the woody section. Harvesting this way means two or three new clusters will appear the next year where you harvested one.
