I found a sage bundle. Thoughts?

  1. I would speak to indigenous peoples around you to learn a proper and respectful way of using it without doing anything that is part of their closed practice (smudging)

  2. i would try to find out what type of sage it is before using, not only because white sage is appropriation, but because they all have slightly different effects (in my experience)

  3. Don't use it.๐Ÿ‘€ Don't keep it as well...๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ Speaking hygene spiritually, you wound not want to use that for yourself.๐Ÿ˜Œ Get some new ones for you house cleaning.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™

  4. I would certainly use it even if its a couple years old. Free sage! Doesnโ€™t get much better than that, unless its free money! I usually take apart sage bundles and use the leaves individually or a few at a time. Ive had some bundles last a pretty long time that way.

  5. Burning/smudging white sage is a closed practice, and should not be done by non-indigenous people. I will let indigenous voices speak for themselves but I would not keep it to use.

  6. There have been posts on this very sub from native practitioners calling out the prevalence of non-native witches using sage in an appropriative way. Do you have testimony from any indigenous practitioners who contradict that, or is this simply your own internal rationale?

  7. If I could have my vote Iโ€™d say use it. I like to do a smoke cleanse on the day or night new moon but you do you. Iโ€™m a green witch and as nature based witchcraft as my jam I would be giddy as all hell to find a sage bundle. It would save me harvesting and drying from my garden.

  8. I'm in the camp of it's already cut from the plant. It's already there. Use it. Obviously, don't pretend to smudge with it but if you would like to use it for smoke cleansings (I know there's a word for that but I never remember it) Idon'tunderstandhowthat wouldbean issue. Cleansing with smoke isn't unique to any culture. I don't understand how it would be beneficial or respectful to throw it out but I understand that's what some people feel is the appropriate thing to do.
