Using a smudging tool is part of many Native American traditions. The burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification is also common practice among many religious, healing, and spiritual groups.
The ritual of sage smudging can be defined as "spiritual house cleaning." In theory, the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy.
White sage is used like incense; its leaves are burned and will produce a fragrant smoke. White sage is also considered ideal as a ceremonial smudge or for home purification.
SAGE HISTORY :
The white sage varieties used as herbs stem from the Mediterranean and Asia Minor and Sage has been grown in Central Europe since the Middle Ages.
The name Salvia derives from the Latin 'salveo', which means 'to heal'. Indeed this herb is highly regarded for it's healing qualities. An ancient proverb states, 'Why should a man die who has sage in his garden?' The ancient Greeks used it to treat consumption, ulcers and snake bites.
The Romans considered sage to be a sacred herb and concocted a whole elaborate ceremony just to pick it. A sage gatherer would have to use a special knife (not made of iron as it reacts with the sage), have to have clean clothes and clean feet and a sacrifice of food would have to be made before he could begin. The Romans would use it for toothpaste; they also believed it to be good for the brain, senses and memory.
