Function of sage

Smudging (sage burning) is a tradition practice of the ancient Chinese, Egyptian, Roman, and Greek for healing, protecting, and increase wisdom.  It is believed that sage has mythical cleansing power that could repel negative energy or purify specific object such as crystal. Indigenous people around the world burn sage to heal, in fact, sage belongs to the Salvia plant family and is derived from the Latin word salvere, which means “ To heal” or “To be well”.

It is fascinating to see indigenous people in different parts of the world have similar smudging practice serve for similar purpose, tho it is not scientifically proven, but I believe there has to be a reason of why this tradition practice passed on generation after generation till now people are still practicing it.Furthermore, smudging can be used to drive unpleasant spiritual entities away if used correctly. It has to be done with care where you must leave your doors or windows open to give them a way out to avoid further exasperation. Mythology aside, A 2005 study showed that common sage oil can improve memory and cognition. In addition, increased dosages were related to improvements in mood and feeling alert, calm, and content. Other researches suggest that active compounds in sage protect against neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Moreover, it is proven that burning sage can kill up to 94% of airborne bacteria in a space and disinfect the air. 

Applications of burning sage include: 

  • Improving mood and reducing stress or anxiety.

  • Cleanse and purify negative energy of a specific object, spiritual hygiene.

  • Repel insects. 

  • Improving intuition. 

  • Removing bacteria from the air.

  • Repel unwanted entities

Second Home incense

Above I have stated of how smudging can improve your mental health, brings you with positive energy, or even drive away unwanted entities, having said that smudging requires a lot of attentions and sometimes it is just plainly inconvenient as it takes time and care to practice especially if want to do it in a daily bases. 

Another common problem of smudging is that it produce a lot of ashes and dust. The smudge stick is tied with a small string which burns while smudging. Without the string, sage leaves and stems just go everywhere not to mention you are suppose to walk around the place you tend to purify thus leaving an ash trail. it is a hassle. Furthermore, you can’t really control the intensity of how the smudge stick burns, it may burn for five minutes and self extinguish, or it burns like a chimney and produce too much smoke. To make matter worst is that you are not suppose to put off the smudge stick in purpose, you are suppose to let it light for as long as it needs meaning it could take an hour or more.

Second Home “Purify” incense provide you with the perfect solution. Our incense uses common sage as it’s main ingredient to provide you with a great sage scent, other natural ingredients such Scandal wood, Agarwood is used to further enhance its scent and effect. The length of the incense and amount of materials used is precise, meaning it will not exceed a certain burn time with adequate amount of sage scented smoke produced. Also you don’t have to worry it will self extinguish in the middle of the ritual.
