Sage is an ancient sacred herb used for purifying space and removing unwanted or negative energy (and bacteria). The smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being ‘smudged’. Sage is used to 'wash off' the outside world when one enters a ceremony or other sacred space. Objects are ‘washed off’ with the medicinal and magical smoke to rid them of negativity.
Sage, and burning of Sage and other herbs is a tradition and practice that spans the entire globe. There are records of sage burning and herb smudging in EVERY ancient culture. Burning sage and other herbs as a cleansing ritual does not belong to any single culture. Though White Sage, Salvia Apiana grows only in the southwestern United States. Salvias (Sage) of many varieties have been burned by many ancient cultures across the globe.
Only a very small group of Native Americans had access to specifically White Sage. Most Native Americans would have burned Red Cedar, Mugwort and different species of Salvia that were native to their regions. Red Cedar was the most widely available and commonly used plant for ritual smudging.
Contrary to urban myth, White Sage and the use of it, whether burned or otherwise, is not ‘owned’ by Native American culture. Nor is White Sage an endangered plant species.
Plants, herbs, flowers, fungus and nature is for of ALL of us. As we humans are part of nature, so is nature a part of us.
