There are distinct types of sage that can be used for smudging, the most common is the white sage or Salvia Apiana. Also known as Californian white sage or sacred sage, this is one of the best herbs for smudging practices.

Indigenous tribes from all over the world, including Native Indian tribes used herbs during their rituals for various purposes. One of the most common herbs for smudging practices is the sage. Sage smudging was used to clean a certain space, to expel negative energies, it was also used before rituals or healing sessions to create a sacred ambiance. It's proven that sage smudging can improve the quality of the air in a room by reducing bacteria, pollen, mold, or pet dander. Smudging sprays work just as well as the traditional smudging, without the smoke. For those who are sensitive to smoke, the best alternative is the sage smudging spray.
