If the vibe needs a lift, a great place to start is with white sage. It’s a classic with so many cultures, and it’s hard to beat. Perhaps it’s partly psychological, but when used regularly it can place people in an almost instant state of relaxation.
When using sage I start by partly opening windows, to let the smoke out, firstly wafting it over myself, then over any crystals or jewelry that need cleansing. State intentions if you like, or ask for protection as you wave or fan it around.
Wooden furniture needs regular saging I find, especially if items have been bought second hand. I also like to sage near my front door, and of course, after arguments (I’m married to a double Gemini!) or after periods of upset or sickness.
Whole bundles can be lit, with a bowl underneath to catch embers, or small pieces can be picked off and used. Sometimes just one dried leaf is enough for a quick cleanse, but however you prefer to sage, just be sure not to burn anything as you go.
Another favourite of mine is essential kaffir lime oil, mixed with water. It’s incredibly cleansing and revitalising, either spritzed over yourself or over hard surfaces like desks. And like sage, it’s excellent for cleansing front doors, especially when affirmations or intentions are stated at the same time. Try spritzing it in your car as well, or simply spray it around a room to lift the vibe.
