Updated: Feb 19


Author: Michael Erwin


We want to share with you some alternatives to smudging in place of over-harvested White Sage.


Cleansing your space, your energy field and your spiritual tools is easy to do with other powerful herbs, resins and essential oils.

Always do some research to make sure these are safe to use within your home and remember that inhaling lots of smoke is never healthy for people or pets, so go easy. Also make sure you aren’t allergic to any of these before using them.


Herbs:

Mugwort

Cedar

Lavender

Rosemary

Juniper

Yerba Santa

Pine Needles

Black Sage

Desert Sage

Blue Sage


Resins:

Dragon’s Blood

Frankincense

Copal

Myrrh


Essential Oils can be added to a spray bottle with spring water to create a very powerful cleansing mist:

Rosemary

Sage (clary)

Sage (culinary)

Lavender

Peppermint

Cedar

Eucalyptus

Fir Needle


These are just a few ideas, experiment to see what works best for you. Brightest Blessings
