Using Sage To Cleanse Or Banish Evil Spirits Through The Practise Of Smudging - Cleansing

The herb ‘Sage’ is often promoted as having properties that enable it to assist with the banishing of evil spirits or forces. Sage can be used to protect specific items by storing them with bundles or boughs of Sage, or the herb may be burnt through the practise of ‘Smudging’ in order to rid an area or home of the influences of evil spirits and demons.
Smudging is the practise of burning herbs such as Sage to create a cleansing smoke bath that can be used to purify people, objects, and homes of negative effects caused by evil or negative entities. Smudging is a practise utilised by many indigenous cultures including the Native American Indians.
The practise of smudging can be carried out using ‘smudge-sticks’, similar to joss-sticks smudge-sticks are purpose made from the herb Sage and may be lit with a candle. Alternatively loose dry herbs may be sprinkled over a burning log or indoor fireplace, etc. to achieve the same effect.
When performing a smudging ritual it is important to remember that if burning large quantities of Sage to avoid respiratory stress and to avoid performing the smudging ritual around infants, pregnant women, asthmatics, etc. and to take all relevant precautions whilst dealing with open flames.
Other herbs used in the practise of smudging that can be combined with Sage include: Bay leaf (to protect against colds and flu), Fennel (to calm nerves), Mugwort (for healing or to stimulate lucid dreams) and Orris root (to increase psychic gifts and concentration).

  1. is there a way to keep the good spirits here while cleansing the bad. I have a spirit that has been here before I was born. he watches out for my son. but there is a bad spirit that has fallowed me and the rest of my family from other states. Is there a way to weed out the so called "evil spirit"?and still keep the one that has protected my son from harm?

    1. There are no good spirits----just angels from God (who are good and watch over us) or demons (evil spirits that are working for the devil). Demons have to be cast out in the name of Jesus. As far as I know, you need to be a believer in Jesus to do so.

    2. I understand your logic, about "keeping the good," while eradicating the bad. I have a mixture of both good, and bad, in my home. Well- They've done me no harm, just scared the heck out of me. lol But seriously. And of course, this is my advice. I'm no expert, but I don't believe that you can divide and conquer. I think it's "all, or nothing." You either decide to keep everything--or eliminate it. Kind of like pesticide.

    3. im a clairvoyant medium, you can protect yourself and your son from negative spirits, mark your self with holy water, to do this start in the center of your forehead, your left temple and the right temple, next mark your left and right shoulders and your left and right wrists, next mark your left and right sides between your hip and waiste, mark behind your left and right knees'meark above your navel ad the center between your ankles. last mark your lower spine. evil spirits will not come near you when you are marked with hole water

  2. My humble opinion, take or leave:

    I assure you, burning herbs is only going to attract them even more. Don't do it. You are playing into their game. They'll make you think it's quelling the problem but it's a false security. That woman tried to bring a very evil spirit into my house once saying it would protect my house but it was because of Jesus that I was able to see its true identity. It was a vile, arrogant, and prideful spirit that wanted entrance into my home and family and I stood my ground and told it it was not allowed in my home in the name of Jesus.

    Jesus is the only sure way because he is Lord & Saviour and his holiness and purity will wipe them all out. What will keep evil spirits out of your home 100% is if your heart is surrendered to him and your sins forgiven. They have no sway over you at all. Also remove any occult articles and charms from you home and that will shut additional doors.

    Please consider as evil spirits that oppose Christ can cause mush suffering, even sickness, epilepsy, madness and ultimately separation from God and hell. Do not listen to these spirits that ignore/hate/oppose Jesus Christ (1 John 4). They can also stay in families for generations and cause problems for your descendants. You want to pass on blessings, not curses.

    Sage is only good for nice scents and cooking. It is a created plant by God for that purpose only.


    1. this is not true, sage cleansing will keep evil forces at bay, to us it might smell good but to an evil spirit it stinks to them.and they will avoid it when they get close to it

  3. Very helpful. Thank you.

  4. Jesus, the Church, and religion in general don't have anything to do with this although the hearts from the religious themed people here are in the right place. Unfortunately their belief systems are based on false information created by egotistical men thousands of years ago to control people through a Church and 'Holy' men dictating a set of beliefs made-up to suit their own needs/ego/id.

    Your best bet would probably be to contact a Medium who actually can see/feel other dimensions where these things come from, and get her/him to clean your home, person, and belongings.

    Additionally, talking with someone who is evolved past religion (understands there is a Prime Creator/s but it is not the earth-bound man-created one per previous comment) for guidance and insight might also prove useful.

    Understanding as well that there is no 'hell' or 'demons' that have been portrayed via Hollywood are at hand here; but most definitely there are negative entities that do mean harm and you CAN get rid of them with the proper help.

    Best of luck!

    1. Oh I wouldn't necessarily say that. If you read in the bible where the Isrealites were protecting themselves from the curse that god sent to wipe out the first borns, you'll notice that they were instructed to use Sage that was dipped in blood and paint it on the doorways and other entry points. Personally, I've tried other things to no avail. But burning Sage does work for me....although I have to repeat it because it keeps on trying to come back.
