Over the holidays I was given a gift from Kim Krans from The Wild Unknown. As soon as I opened the box the smell refreshed the air around me. Inside was a bundle of wild harvested black sage, Mexican sage, juniper, lavender, lemon verbena, jasmine, lupine, cedar, breath of heaven, and roses. Hanging delicately from a tie dyed ribbon was this quote:
“Strike another match, start anew”
~ Bob Dylan
I went home that evening from work which just so happened to be the 2nd day into the new year and did just that… I lit a match and burned the sage and wished for a new and healthy year. The poignant smell of the sage filled the air and it instantly felt cleansed. Sage has a lot of medical and healing properties and has been used since the ancient times to dispel negative energy, however one thing is highly important before you begin burning the sage to cleanse your home… you must have a clear mind.
I have never burnt sage before but now I have become a huge fan. Try it, start a new year by cleansing your thoughts and space with sage.
