- Burning Sage (Smudging) is a spiritual ritual practiced by Native Americans for centuries to rid one's self, or one's space, of negative energy.
- A 2016 research project for the University of Mississippi established that sage is rich in compounds that activate certain receptors in the brain. These receptors are responsible for elevating mood levels and reducing stress.
- Most types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay. *Smudging with sage IS NOT a substitute for common sense practices, such as thorough hand washing!
