Why are so many people smudging with sage?
We are here to share these five important reasons why you should start smudging with sage or other sacred medicines. We've helped thousands of people find sacred medicines that are just right for them, as well as why they should smudge. And now it's your turn. You will definitely want to get yourself a bundle or smudge kit as soon as possible. Smudging rituals have taken place all over the world. They've been around for centuries. There are five major benefits from smudging with sage that you can start gaining from just by doing a quick smudge at home.
#1 smudging with sage reduces over 94% of harmful airborne bacteria in a room
Holy moly. That is a huge reason to start smudging right there. There is scientific research that has been done that proves that the smoke's ability to disinfect and purify the air was maintained for up to 24 hours. Now you can start saving money on Febreze and ignite those smudge bulls and smudge sticks and bring on the purification. Now that we know that smudging acts as an antiseptic and it's disinfecting the air that we breathe, what could these four other benefits be?
#2 smudging with sage neutralizes the positive ions in the room
Makes the energy around us more free. When you are stressed, angry or tense, there is a buildup of positive ions in the air that is being released from your body. The energy in the room becomes stagnant with an imbalance of positive ions. Now, just to be clear, positive ions, aren't the same thing as positive vibes, positive ions are harmful and can cause us to feel tired and burnt out. Smudging turns the positive ions back to negative ones and therefore the practice of smudging cleanses and purifies the atmosphere. Have you guys smudged before?

#3 burning sage increases your clarity, awareness and also improves your mood
This is not just my opinion, studies have shown that smudging with sage makes you think more clearly and also enhances your memory too. It's also been shown to quicken your senses as your awareness goes up. How amazing is that? I could definitely use a mood boost every now and then, but increased clarity and awareness is a massive benefit for me and probably for you too.
#4 The smoke from the smudging medicine has been used to help aid lung, brain and skin function
Research from over 50 countries has found that the smoke has been used since ancient times to help improve your respiratory system, your nervous system and your skin too. And once the fumes become inactive, they act as an air purifier. That's pretty cool.
#5 The smoke heightens your state of mind. So you can think pure thoughts and feel good physically and spiritually
Indigenous people have been smudging since the beginning of time. Growing up, I was taught from my elders that smudging gets rid of the negative energies, and it also heals us on a spiritual level. As Native American people or indigenous people, we believe that the sacred medicines are gifts from the creator that were given to us to help heal our mind, body, and spirits.
