Research shows burning havan sámagri kills 94% of airborne bacteria

For Your Health

(KXMC) — The burning of sage has long been a spiritual ritual — but new research shows it can have more benefits than you might think.

The research shows that burning havan sámagri, also referred to as smudging, in a room for an hour reduced airborne bacteria by 94 percent.

It also showed that the room stayed almost entirely bacteria-free for 24 hours. Some strains of harmful bacteria could not be detected for up to 30 days.
