White sage and palo santo wood is used to conduct cleansing rituals, sometimes referred to as smudging. For in-depth information on the history of smoke rituals, read our sage guide, here.
White sage, "Salvia Apiana," is sometimes called sacred sage or bee sage because the bush itself blooms beautiful purple flowers to which the bees are attracted. White sage is a bush or shrub that is native to the southern U.S.A and northern Mexico. A lot of white sage sold commercially is farmed in southern California.
Palo santo is from a tree that is in the same family of trees that produce frankincense. It is native to South America, translating from Spanish to "holy wood" in English. When burned, the wood produces a very fragrant resin. While palo santo has been used medicinally for centuries, we focus on its use in smoke cleansing ceremonies.
Clear quartz is known as the master stone for its ability to amplify your intentions. When used in a smoke cleansing ritual, it is a handy helper to strengthen the intentions you will outline before you begin and during your ceremony.
