Sage can elevate your spiritual connection while boosting your intuition. It clears your space of any negative or heavy energy and is perfect for doing rituals. If you love crystals, use sage to clear them of any lingering and stagnant energies they may have accumulated. You can cleanse other objects as well, such as jewelry, your personal place, and items you bring home from the store. Additionally, science has shown that smoke from sage can eliminate bacteria in the air, serving as both a spiritual and practical purpose.
