I may as well add to my reputation as a flake. I lived in Maine for a long time. Hippie land. I changed majors from International Affairs, to Math, to Foreign Language, to finally Art. I know about Sage. We even used the stuff in ritual study at school.
I suggest the kind that has lavendar in it. It smells a lot better. Get the smaller ones, instead of the bigger one. You can cover more ground at one time. All in all, in my experience… meh. I like balsam fir candles a whole lot better. But some folks swear by ‘em.
Good luck with you & all your bad juju. May you be blessed with your favorite flavor jujubes.
