After it has caught fire blow it out and use what is left smoldering. Hold the bowl below the smoldering sage so that you catch the ash as you slowly walk around all the rooms in the home allowing the smoke to billow all over. Take it to the corners where the older energies are hanging out. Extinguish the stick by using water when you are done.
