Sage clumps are fairly common stuff for lots of new-agey, natural and other holistic or magical supply places.

In a pinch, you can even make it yourself witout too much hassle, if you have a patch of fresh-growing sage. Pick a few leafy stalks, and kinda stick 'em together so the stalks join together, parallel to each other, tie 'em nice and snug with some string or heavy thread. Hang it upside down to dry, and in a few days, you should have a nice little bundle of sage, ready to burn for whatever purpose you choose (cleansing and purification is most common, but they have other uses, too). Or just dry a single stalk, light the topmost leaves, and when it starts to burn on its own, blow out the flame. The ignited leaves should burn down, and might even go on down the stalk to burn away other parts of it, if it's really dry. Play around with it a little, and see what you get.

One harvesting tip, though--never take more than 1/4 of the plant's total growth! More than that will send the plant into shock, and could it, especially if it's a younger, smaller plant! Prune carefully-- remember, plants are living beings, too, and you wouldn't enjoy sacrificing big chunks of you to something you didn't understand, now would you?

Two to three bucks a bundle is the going rate for most "smudge sticks", ranging in size from about 5-9" long and usually about 1-2" wide. Some unscrupulous dealers will try to charge you upwards of $6 for a rod this size, so don't get so eager to try it that you pay an exorbitant fee for the stuff. Sage grows pretty readily, and comes in different varieties, don't be afraid to shop around. If there's no stores in your area that carry the stuff, ask again and see if anybody can give you a good mail-order source.

I found whenever I am stressed or irritated I simply light sage incense and that calms me.
