Salvia apiana, the white sage, bee sage, or sacred sage, is an evergreen perennial shrub that is native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found mainly in the coastal sage scrub habitat of Southern California and Baja California, on the western edges of the Mojave and Sonoran desert.
The use of sage is for healing. The smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. The Native American tribes were known to use sage for multiple purposes such as healing, clearing space, and ceremonies. To begin smudging open the door and windows in the selected room.
Take the sage smudging stick and light it up to let the sage burn until it smokes. Hold the stick while producing a mental affirmation to fill the room. When the fumes are pointed in a uniform direction, this indicates that you can move to the next location. If the fumes are scattered then continue with the rotation of the sage in different directions.
