High Desert Sage has a light and woody aroma that is less bitter than the traditional white sage. While it is sought after for its many medicinal purposes, it is used a smudging herb to clear negative energy, drive out evil spirits and induce sweating, among other purposes. Our desert sage grows wild at high altitudes in the United States.
Aroma: Light woody
Intention: To cleanse one’s space or body, drive out evil spirits or induce sweating in a sweatlodge. Smudging is a spiritual purification process that can be thought of as a cleansing smoke bath that involves lighting the stick, gently blowing out the flame and placing it safely in a fireproof bowl, allowing the smoke to fill your space and wash over your body. This practice is held sacred within the Native American culture as well as shamanism.
This thick and solid smudge stick is 8”-9.5” long. It is highly aromatic and burns slowly, enabling its smoke to carry its purifying properties throughout a room. Our bundles are hand-harvested in the environmental, sustainable and traditional Native American method.
Why customers love it: Customers love that our smudging herbs are 100% natural and support a traditional culture. They are also popular for their reputation as energetic purifiers and for the long history of use by traditional healers in spiritual ceremonies.

How to use: Light the tip of the bundle until there’s a small flame. Gently blow it out until only smoke is produced.
