White sage is most well known for smoke cleansing. These bundles are available in two lengths: 4 inches and 5 to 6 inches.
Full Disclosure about Sage:
As many are aware, white sage is currently over-harvested. Also, white sage is used by many indigenous cultures in holy smudging ceremonies; those who attempt to use white sage in this way who have no connection to the culture of indigenous peoples are participating in cultural appropriation. We know this, and try our best to honor these two facts.
We have sourced these bundles through a company that advertises its respect towards both the environment and the people who have harvested it, and we hope that they are honest in that advertisement. However, in order make sure that we do not cause harm, we will not be ordering any more bundles from wholesale companies, regardless of their reviews.
In the future, we will be offering home-made bundles of various herbs (including common and broad leaf sage) harvested from our own Maude’s Medicinal Garden. These bundles will be great for smoke cleansing and many other spiritual practices.
However, unless you have cultural connections to indigenous countries who practice smudging, none of these products would be appropriate for smudging ceremonies.
