 What to look for before buying sage for burning?

Purpose:  Sage is a plant that has many uses. There are also different colors and types of sage. Purple, blue, white. Among them, white sage, also known as Californian sage has been used for a spiritual purpose. Others are used as spices.

So know your purpose and buy according to that.

Health issue: Burning sage is not harmful, according to experts. But if you have an allergy or asthma issue, the smoke can be derogatory for your health.

But that doesn’t mean you can implement sage’s healing properties. Buy sage essential oil, and use it in an oil diffuser.

Check for impurities: Nowadays, sage-burning sticks are widely available in stores. Make sure there aren’t any other leaves/herbs mixed up in your stick. This may hamper your cleansing process.

If you are new, I would recommend buying only one stick to avoid wasting money.

Which aisle is sage in grocery stores?

Sage is a plant product, so you will find it in the produce aisle. Search it among the leafy vegetables. It may have dried sage leaves in a bundle.

If you find raw sage leaves, you can easily make a burning stick out of them. Just keep it in the sun for a couple of days.

You will also find it in the spice and herb aisle. Grounded sage, bundle sage sticks are other forms of sage.

Sage essential oils and candles can be found in the aromatherapy aisle. Also, the beauty and skincare aisle may have sage essential oil.

Home essentials aisle may have sage bundles, search in candles, and air fresheners.

Thrive Market

Thrive market doesn’t have a sage burning stick but I found an uncommon thing, that is sage deodorant. There is also grounded sage.

As sage has potential soothing and healing properties, there are many different forms of sage. For the burning purpose, sticks are the most useful. Although not every store has it in them. Grounded sage is pretty common as it is used as a spice. Unconventional but can be used for burning purposes.
