a smudge a day keeps the germs 🦠 away… The earthy smell of burning sage, quickly releases the knots in your stomach as you breath it in, while the light and relaxing scent of lavender dispels your headache. In addition sage contains natural microbial and anti-bacterial properties. Burning it, releases these, helping kill off airborne bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens. A scientific study proved that burning sage or smudge for one hour, eliminated 94% of the airborne bacteria in a room, and the results lasted up to 24 hours.
Unlike chemical air “purifiers” that only mask the smells in the air, sage is 100% natural and will not cause allergic reactions for people with scent sensitivities. You should be able to find sage stick at your local natural food store or essential oils store. If both places don’t carry them, the staff should know where you can buy them. Whether the season is summer, spring, fall or winter, it is a good idea to clean the air in your home regularly to get rid of germs and all the other unhealthy things you don’t want your family to breathe in.
