9 inch bundle of white sage
Once you're ready to light your herb bundle, grab the bundle as far from the end you are burning as possible. Hold the bundle at a 45-degree angle, light the bundle, let it burn for about 20 seconds and then gently blow out the flame so that you see orange embers on one end. Then you can start the process of clearing your space. If the bundle was packed too tight when made, then the oxygen can't get in properly and the herb won't stay lit. Loosen the ribbon around the herb and take the tip you are lighting and smash it on to a surface to give it a little breathing room. Always have a heat resistant place to put out your herb bundle, such as an abalone shell. Never leave anything burning without supervision.
