Incense & Sage
Uplift your space
Sage has many uses around the world (e.g. used in rituals by Native Americans) and is one of the oldest methods of cleansing a person or space. It is said that burning sage clears the negative energy and uplifts the person/environment. To burn, light the end of the bundle allowing it to burn for a few seconds before blowing it out. Make sure you have a plate or some stone under it before you do this.
Although I love the scent of sage, I find it can be slightly too heavy after awhile. I always like to balance it out by burning some sweet incense. I love to burn it while working throughout the day because it keeps me focused on what I’m supposed to be doing.
I love all types of candles and home diffusers, but burning incense is a different experience all together. It is smokey and creates a completely different atmosphere than any other home scents. Besides that, there is something primal about the scent. It always brings me back to those long summer evenings with the faint smell of Nag Champa and a campfire.
