White Sage covered in blood? Absolutely not! The so-called Dragon's Blood Sage gets its colour from a resin that is harvested from the fruit of a plant. The fruit originates from various regions; the most famous being that from Sumatra.
When added to regular white sage, Dragon's Blood enhances the benefits of the white sage - known to clear out any negative energies from your space - and gives you the extra boost of metaphysical protection. Therefore Dragon’s Blood Sage is great to use when performing rituals for cleansing and protection. It is also believed to enhance health, and virility and to cure impotency. Dragon’s blood is also known as a strong detox and blood cleaner.
WHY BURNING SAGE
Native Americans started the tradition of using Sacred Sage to ward off negative energies, and white sage has been used in ceremonies to seek blessings of health and prosperity, banish spirits, and encourage protection. Sage Smudging is a ritual where the leaves of the Sage plant are burned, and the smoke is directed into and onto areas that are in need of clearing and protection. The idea is that as the leaves are burned, and you speak to express your gratitude for its assistance, the spirit of the sage plant releases its energy of protection and clearing into the space or onto the object that needs clearing. As the smoke moves through the room or over a surface, the smoke attaches itself to any heavy, negative energy that is within the space, object or being. This heavy energy then becomes released, so that it may regenerate into something positive. You can perform this smudging ritual on anything or anyone that needs a clearing. Scientific research also shows that sage contains flavonoids - plant compounds that have medicinal properties. Some of these compounds appear to improve brain health and guard against diseases like Alzheimer's. In one study of mice, sage extract improved memory. In other animal studies, sage helped against depression and anxiety. It also helps with digestive troubles, soothing upset stomachs. It is calming to the gut and calming to the mind, similar to the way lavender is calming.
HOW TO USE
To burn sage, take the bundle in one hand and light the end of the bundle, then let the smoke waft into the air. If you are trying to cleanse the air in a room, you then walk around the space with the burning wand. You can also place the burning sage bundle in a dedicated shell or incense burner.
