Smoke Cleansing 101


Feeling sluggish, stagnant and low on energy? This is most probably because you need to clear the negative and unwanted energies from your field.

Smoke cleansing with White Sage is the perfect way to banish those gloomy feels and restore balance to you and your space. These rituals are great to clear unknown energies from new homes or to refresh your existing space. 

Burning white sage is said to improve your memory and focus, along with easing insomnia and fatigue. There are also studies suggesting it kills up to 94% of airborne bacterial and improves the overall air quality dramatically! 

Smoke cleansing has been around for thousands of years! Many ancient cultures used smoke cleansing in rituals and ceremonies to call upon the spirits, purify spaces, and people, and drive away negative energy. 

The ritual is very simple and very empowering, and you only need a couple of things to carry out your own smoke cleanse at home! Once you have finished the cleanse you'll feel lighter, brighter and have a renewed sense of motivation! 


Directions: Firstly, make sure all windows and doors are open - all of that negativity (and smoke) needs to have a pathway to get out.

If you're burning a sage stick, ignite one end of the sage stick. Holding it at a 45 degree angle, point the tip down towards the flame and allow to burn for 30 seconds before blowing it out. If you are burning loose sage, simply put the desired amount in a heat proof bowl and ignite with a match or lighter. 

From here, walk around the space, object or person. Fan the smoke over it’s entirety, focusing on cleansing and clearing the negative energy. Guide the bad energy and smoke towards the open windows or door, so it can escape.

If embers fall on the ground, tamp them out immediately. Never leave the burning sage unattended. Do not inhale directly. Once finished, press the burning end of the sage stick into a fireproof vessel, sand or dirt to extinguish fully. If you are using a cleansing bowl put a plate over the bowl to cut off the oxygen until it is out completely.
