You might want to post in the Wicca/Pagan section.

What I do is hold it upright and blow on the sage to keep it burning.
If that doesn't work, you might want to 'dry' the sage more so it will burn better.

I've tried using sage but either I'm doing it wrong or the smell just turns me right off! I like the smell of fresh sage though.

You are welcome.

There are some exotic sages.

For example, there is even a smudge available that have 7 colors (flowers) representing the 7 respective Chakras.

For cleansing there are many other things than saging. Frankincense incense, for instance, cleanses and is way better than sage. Dragons blood incense also cleanses.

There have been studies indicating that sage is being over harvested in many areas. Not only that is the issue with appropriating a culture.

Therefore I try and use herb smudges that do not utilize sage. Usually local plants I harvest ethically myself. Unfortunately I have witnessed as a traditional witchcraft practitioner I have noticed mentioning alternative cleansing plants on online platforms has led to an increase in these alternatives being sold and the exposure of them increasing demands, an example being rosemary.

There are real issues regarding the threat to our environment, local plants and animals, and appropriation.

These days I find myself trying to remain more ethical and true to my own culture without divulging too much information of my personal practice. I have noticed some, especially businesses, misusing information they gather from such places as social media.
