Smudging has been traditionally used to
safeguard against negativity that could interfere
with sleep. Some research suggests that sage
contains compounds that could help ease
insomnia. Classic garden sage (Salvia officinalis)
is sometimes burned like white sage. It's also
been used to improve sleep and soothe anxiety.
Benefits of Burning Sage:
•Removing bacteria from the air.
•Purifying specific objects.
•Improving mood and reducing stress and anxiety.
PALO SANTO: Burning Palo Santo is an effective way to cleanse and purify your home or personal
space of any negative energy, while also
providing a pleasant aroma.
Since SAGE removes negativity from a space,
and palo santo brings in positivity it's a good
idea to burn them one after another. When to
burn palo santo vs. sage: Smudge with sage first
to clear out bad energy, then burn palo santo to
bring back positivity and good vibes.
