Benefits of Smudging

I highly recommend you try smudging as it is truly a beautiful ritual to do for yourself and your home. It’s vibrant, earthy scent fills a space with healing energy and potential health benefits. If for nothing else, your home will smell delightful and clean.

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • An ethically sourced Sage bundle from The Crystal Club
  • A lighter and candle
  • A bowl or one of our divine abalone shells from the Australian ocean
  • An open mind and heart

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS:   

1. BURNING SAGE CAN PURIFY THE AIR.

Sage is thought to have antimicrobial and antibacterial agents and can possibly help clean the air you breathe. This can help keep viruses, bacteria, and pesky bugs away from you and your loved ones.

2. IT CAN HELP CLEAR NEGATIVE ENERGY.

The ritual of burning sage has long been associated with releasing negative energy so it’s no wonder that it can help boost your mood. Learning to find time for yourself while smudging can help induce calm feelings and a more positive mindset.

3. IT CAN REPEL INSECTS.

Sage is known as a natural repellent. The next time you’re hanging in your backyard and mosquitoes stop by for a visit, light some sage in a bowl and let it smolder.

4. IT CAN HELP AID IN SLEEP, ANXIETY, AND STRESS.

Sage has been used for many moons as a way to treat body and mental unrest. The aromatic compound found within the plant can help soothe the nerves as well as offer an opportunity to clear and settle your mind.

5. IT’S A NATURAL ROOM FRAGRANCE.

Burning sage has a potent scent. It can clear out other unsavory scents that may be lingering.

6.  INCREASES YOUR SENSE OF WELLBEING 

Smudging removes the debilitating effects of excess positive ions in the air in a way that’s been described as a natural antidepressant.  It seems that the negative ions produced from smudging offer serious antidepressant effects – so much so it’s said to be at least as effective as a prescription antidepressant without the side effects.
