If you feel like the space around you or within you could do with a spiritual spring clean, light up some sage and let it work its magic. Sometimes we can get too caught up in the energy of others or lingering vibes that stay in a room. Sage is an energetic cleanser and should be called upon to do this all-important task.
Full of gorgeous grounding properties and here to tether you back to the here and now, burning sage can be a beautiful remedy for clearing stress and anxiety. Not only is the scent of sage super relaxing, but the act of burning the sage can help us to direct our energy and set an intention. All of this adds up to less stress which is why rituals can have so much positive power in our lives. Sage can also bring with it themes of wisdom and turning inwards for the answer. Knowing that we have solutions tucked in our hearts can also bring a sense of trust and healing and can reduce any anxiety.
Cleanses crystals and other energy objects
As a mega cleanser, sage can also be used in harmony with your other healing objects.

Cleansing crystals is important if you want to keep them working at the top of their game. Sometimes, these healing stones can become full of collected energy and will need a complete discharge and recharge to get them working again. Simply smudging the stone with sage can sweep away that stagnant energy and infuse your gems with high vibrations once more.
