Wild White Sage
Before you light up, remember to open a door or window as the unwanted
energy you are trying to clear must have a pathway to get out.
Once you're ready to light your sage, grab the sage as far from the end
you are burning as possible. Hold the sage at a 45-degree angle, light
the sage, let it burn for about 20 seconds and then gently blow out the
flame so that you see orange embers on one end. Then you can start the
process of clearing your space.
If the sage bundle was packed too tight when made, then the oxygen can't
get in properly and the sage won't stay lit. Loosen the ribbon around
the sage and take the tip you are lighting and smash it on to a surface
to give it a little breathing room. This helps to keep your sage
smoking. If you also start to see the glow of the embers fading you can
gently blow on the end that is lit up and remember to do this gently,
otherwise you can send sage ash flying onto your outfit or carpet.
