What is smudging?

Smudging is the practice of spiritual cleansing with smoke, especially from sacred herbs. You can smudge a person, a place, a building, or an object. "Smudge" is both a noun and a verb - a bundle of herbs burned as incense is also called a smudge.

Why smudge?

Smudging is done to remove bad energy and bring a feeling of peace and clarity. Smudging uses the natural qualities of aromatic plants, along with the smudger's prayers and intentions, to improve the psychic environment. Smudging is a basic ritual, but it can be a very effective one. 

Some people also use smudging as a first step in setting sacred space. Smudging is a way to invite higher spiritual vibrations into a place of healing or meditation. Many spiritual paths use incense to help draw one's thoughts to the Divine. Most also hold in common the benefits of prayers, blessings, and acts of hospitality. 

Tips for smudging...

Before you begin, say a little prayer or invite your Spirit Guides in. Ask your Divine helpers to assist you in purifying the energy of the area or object you are smudging.

Create as much smoke and as little flame as possible. You can relight if the smudge extinguishes during the process.

Keep your intention clearly set in your mind.

Spend as much time as you need, allowing your intuition to really guide you.

At the end of the day, smudging has the best effect when it's personal and lead by your intuition. Go with what you feel is right and don't worry about saying the right prayer or moving in the right direction around a room. 

Basic safety instructions:

Place burning smudge away from curtains, lampshades, and all those objects that could catch fire easily.

Make sure your area is well ventilated. 

Never leave burning smudge unattended. If you are going out of your space, make sure your smudge is fully extinguished. 

Never burn a Sage inside a closet or closed space. This is a potential fire hazard.

Keep the burning stick away from the reach of children and pets.

Always place burning Sage in an incense burner on a heat resistant surface. Please be aware that the outside of the burner may get very hot!
