Whether you’re looking to spruce up your home or office, sage is a powerful plant that can do wonders. Before you begin, make sure that you have the right equipment and prepare your sage correctly so that you can get the most out of this powerful herb.
To start, gather some fresh or dried sage leaves and a piece of string. Then, roll the sage leaves into a joint-like shape and place it inside of a rolling paper or a natural alternative like a corn husk. Once you’re done, it’s time to light your sage bundle! Take a deep breath in and let the aromatic smoke fill your lungs. Inhale the sage for about 30 seconds and then exhale slowly, allowing the sage to cleanse your surroundings. Remember to press the burning tip of your sage bundle into sand or a fireproof container to extinguish it.
