After getting your sage stick ready, get matches and some candles. You can light up the candles as a fire element while you carry out the ritual of expelling spirits from your home.
Lastly, a fireproof container should be available to help hold in embers, sage pieces or ashes. Abalone shell is the best fireproof container as it provides a water element for the ritual. If you don’t have this shell, you can use ceramic plates or clay bowls.
Light up the sage and move with it all over your home to chase spirits. Make sure the windows and doors are open so that the spirits can find their way out of your home.
