Smudging and clearing is essential to clear a space of negative or stagnant energy.
Many people come into PNB looking for sage but aren’t really sure what else they need or how to use it.
Using the smoke of herbs/incense has been used for thousands of years throughout almost all cultures around the world.
It has been used in temples and altars, sweat lodges and hospitals to clear away germs and illness, to protect and purify and to ward off evil, yet most of us in today’s world have never been taught about it.
Smudging is not some New Age metaphysical mumbo jumbo but is actuallyan ancient means to heal body and spirit.
Sage is the most common herb used to cleanse or clear the air of unwanted energies and stagnation.
Once you have saged your area or yourself, that’s not the end. There’s more to it than that.
Now that you’ve cleared, or sent away the baddies, you must smudge again to bring in the good! It’s not a one shot deal!
Sweetgrass is commonly used to bring in the good after saging. Considered the hair of Mother Earth by some Native Americans, sweetgrass is braided to honor her before it is cut!
If you have allergies and can’t burn the herbs, liquid sage is available. We generally have it in stock, here at PNB.
