About White Sage
A Native American traditional way of using smoke to purify a space is through the practice of smudging. For hundreds of years, white sage has been considered a sacred, cleansing, purifying, and protective plant which has a spirit. The Spirit of sage is dedicated to offering protection, blessings, and clearing. The shamans used dried sage plants on their fires as a ritual of calling upon ancestral spirits.
Native Americans started the tradition of using Sacred Sage to ward off evil spirits and negative energies, and white sage has been used in ceremonies all over the world to seek blessings of health and prosperity, banish spirits & encourage protection. Sage is used as a part of many Native American ceremonies because of its purification powers.
Sage emits negative ions and our aura holds positive ions. Through the smudging process we can neutralise our aura or the energy of other spaces and objects to cleanse and renew.

ABOUT PALO SANTO
Palo Santo has a long history of use by the native people of South America as an essential tool in sacred shamanic rituals for its energetic cleansing and medicinal healing properties. Its name translates to ‘holy wood” in Spanish
The mystical tree is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon. The calming and relaxing aroma of Palo Santo is even more present from the smoke of the smouldering wood. Today it is continued to be enjoyed for its cleansing and healing properties, much like sage, to release negative energies and negative thoughts and feelings. The smoke provides an uplifting sent that calms the mind and raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and provides a deeper spiritual connection.

THE ABALONE SHELL
An abalone shell below will further enhance the positive energies the smudging smoke creates as the shells have their own protective energies.
Representing the ‘water’ element of a 4-element ritual, the abalone shell is also used to catch the ash and embers from your smudge stick.
Rest your smudge stick on the shell before, during and after your cleansing ritual.
