Native American Sage Mythology. Sage is one of the most important Native American ceremonial plants, used by many tribes as an incense and purifying herb. It helps clear the build up of emotional or spiritual negativity. Smudging is often viewed as some sort of magical practice, however recent studies have shown that there is scientific evidence that medicinal smoke is a powerful antiseptic that can purify the air of 94% of harmful bacteria for up to 24 hours. The electromagnetic field (aura) around our body, as well as the energy in our environment, can become blocked with harmful positive ions that can make us feel fatigued, sluggish and burnt out. Burning sage neutralizes the positive charge and releases large amounts of negative ions into the atmosphere. This means that our own energy, and the energy around us, will feel lighter and freer. It is also the reason that we feel like we could “cut the tension with a knife” during an argument, or if someone is in a bad mood. A build up of positive ions due to stress, anger or any form of tension releases positive ions and causes the energy around us to become stagnant. Burning herbs turns the positive ions back to negative ones, and therefore, the practice purifies and cleanses the atmosphere.
Our sage is collected on the Navajo Nation near the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Navajos have the second strongest magic in the world right behind African voodoo. Sage protects and purifies you from bad energies.
