You ever start doing something your mom used to do then realize all the benefits later? Well that is how burning started for me. My parents burned incense all the time. I distinctly remember the Frankincense & Myrrh wafting around my head. The 70's it was afros, lots of love and herbs burning in the air. 🤣 Some of the benefits of burning I didn't realize until much later. One of the biggest benefits I have found is the fact that certain herbs like sage for one can actually kill microbes and bacteria in the air. That means energy can be raised, reset and fixed on the highest and best good for all. I close my eyes and imagine my ancestors throwing whole trees on large alters to cleanse the community and bring in good energy.
How do you burn?
What do you use it for in your life?
Upon arrival in the Bull city Durham, NC we met a sister spirit who has a wonderful company that produces sage sticks.
I was elated because one of the first things we do before moving into any new space is pray and cleanse the air with smudging sage. I was able to get the herbs I needed and get some "Try me Sticks" the smokable herb sticks. The benefits for Sage listed on I am Freedom's Drum's website is long, "white sage is a smokable herb that can be used to improve mood, promote feelings of relaxation, and also boosts memory." check them out here.
