Incense has been used for centuries as a method of cleansing, to help with meditation, and to surround your space with a beautiful scent that is free from harsh chemicals and additives. To use incense, place it in an appropriate holder (something that is heat proof) and simply light the tip. Once a flame appears, gently blow it out so that it is left to slowly burn. Some people are sensitive to some scents or the smoke that is released, even though it is very minimal. If this happens, just place your holder on a higher shelf.
Smoke Cleansing is a Native American ritual or ceremony that is performed to cleanse and purify a space, an object or even a living being. You can do this by burning a sage bundle and waving the smoke with your hand or a feather either around a room, your crystals or a person. Loose leaf sage can also be used in a heat proof bowl such as our abalone shell bowls.
