The use of sage is for healing. 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 ceremony or other sacred space. Objects are likewise washed off with sage medicine smoke to rid them of unwanted negativity.
Juniper is use after you’ve burned white sage to lighten and brighten the air.

It acts as a sort of spring cleaning for the soul. To get reacquainted with your most energetically alive self, employ the vibrant scent of Juniper leaves. In Native American cultures, Juniper was believed to protect against malign spirits and bad luck.
