What is Smudging?

The practice of smudging is the smoke purification ritual of burning herbs as a way to bring in good spirits and remove stagnant or negative energies. The most commonly known herb used for smudging is sage.

An alternative to sage and a highly favored choice would be that of sweet grass. Although at times a carefully prepared mixture of various plants may be combined to treat specific needs such as illness. This may include herbs such as cedar, juniper, tobacco, and lavender.

This combination could vary depending on your climate, culture, tribe, beliefs and availability.

smudgingThere is something about smoke that connects us to our spirituality.

If your energy, which includes your emotional, mental, physical, spiritual or environmental field feels down and depressed this is believed to manifest into lack of happiness and success as well as pain and disease.

The ancient art of smudging is an honored tradition used to combat these negativities and restore positivity.

For a myriad of reasons one may wish to shed some light and clear the air.

How To Perform Smudging

sage bundles

Open the windows if indoors.

Focus your intention.

Light your sage stick—hold the flame until you achieve a steady stream of smoke. Wave your hand over the sage to extinguish the flame (do not blow it out).

Begin by smudging yourself before moving on to others or your environment.

With a cupped hand, draw the smoke to your face. Start at the top of your head and work down to your feet. You want complete coverage. Do not rush the process and be conscious of your breath.

Then use the feather to direct the smoke to another. Head to toe. Front and back.

Next, distribute the smoke to your surroundings. Make sure to get into all corners and closets of the rooms. Concentrate over objects such as furniture and all collectible accessories.

When finished, empty the ashes from the herbs outside and give back to the earth.
