Hi, everyone. My name is Liza Pitsirilos from Ambrosia Lifestyle. I'm an experiential wellness educator and coach and what I do is I help people to create more freedom in their mind and body so they have more production interactions with themselves and others. Today we're going to talk about how to use a white sage smudge stick. Now sage, dried sage is actually used in native American traditions and it's used to help clear the energy, the physical and spiritual energy of a room or even a being like a person and it's been the practice that's been adopted by many cultures. There's a few things to note about white sage. White sage has a very pungent smell and it's important for you to have a bowl so that you can catch the ashes with it so that it's safe. So starting off, here's what white sage smudge stick looks like. To light it, you hold it upside down and you take the flame right underneath it, let it catch a little bit and you'll start to see the smoke rise, quickly blow it out and you can blow a few times until you see the embers burning. Now to smudge a person, I'm going to smudge myself you start from the top of the head, the crown of the head and you just allow one hand to fan over so the smoke starts to seep into the top of the head and you work your way down into the arms and armpits which is where your lymph nodes are located and the lymph nodes help process toxins so this is a really good area to spend time in and sage and if you are saging a room, it's very similar actually. You use one hand, so let me use one hand just to lift and press the sage so you are getting all corners of the room. And that's how to use a white sage smudge stick.
