Intended to be used in the sacred art of smudging, these 4" white sage smudge sticks, whose smoke will help you wash away negative energy and ill influence, are a staple in any magickal cupboard.
The practice of burning sacred herbs for ceremony has also raised issues about the religious freedom of Native Americans. Native American students in college dorms, for example, have often faced harassment and been forbidden from smudging due to university policies that prohibit the burning of candles or incense in college dorm rooms.
Traditionally, when gathering herbs for ceremonial use, care is taken to determine the time of day, month, or year when the herbs should be collected; for example, at dawn or evening, at certain phases of the moon, or according to yearly cycles. Gertrude Allen, a Lumbee, reported that her father, an expert in healing with plants, stated that sage varies in potency at different times of the year. Most commercial gatherers do not follow these traditions.
Smudging has been adopted into a number of modern belief systems, including many forms of New Age and eclectic Neopagan spirituality. This has been protested and is seen as cultural appropriation by some of the people from the traditional cultures whose practices are being imitated. ~ Wiki

Pure powders, resins and gums in granular form are traditional western incenses and must be roasted on a hot coal or metal surface so the small pieces can burn slowly and properly releasing quantities of rich, fragrant smoke.
★ Natural incense (Granular, Resin, Herb or Powdered) is made to be burn on a hot charcoal representing the "Air" element in Spiritual Practice. Just place a small amount on top of the charcoal. The resins or herbs will begin to burn and release their essential oils and natural essences through the smoke. Incense has two major functions: First, it is believed to create a magical atmosphere that is appropriate for the invocation (or inviting) of Deities and Spirits often present around the Pagan/Occult altar. Second, burning the incense is believed to release the large amount of energy stored within natural incense so that it can be used for magical purposes. Smoke is used as an offering to the Spirits by carrying our prayers, energy and petitions to the "Powers That Be". ★
★ Never leave burning Incense unattended and keep away from children and PETS! Charcoal should be placed in a nonflammable and heat resistant container or dish (Soapstone, Ceramic or Clay is best), that readily disperses heat and is filled with Earth or Sand. Keep away from anything flammable; Curtains, Rugs, Bedding, Books, Paper, Decorations, etc. Keep away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and ALL air currents. ★
