The Global Shaman Large White Sage Smudge Sticks are grown and harvested by Native Americans in a sustainable manner that preserves their natural habitat. For centuries smudging, the burning of aromatic herbs has been believed to release the beneficial properties of each plant. White sage is the most commonly burned plant. It is traditionally used as a space clearing plant, to remove negative energy indoors and out. It supports healing rituals, sweat lodge ceremonies and festivals. Its fresh herbal fragrance rejuvenates the mind and enhances mental clarity and memory. Our Global Shaman Large White Sage Smudges are packaged in biodegradable bags, with eco-friendly tags, in keeping with our commitment to the environment.
