The practice of smudging has long been used as a ritual tool for clearing negative energy. Smoke from a burning sage stick is used to bless, heal or cleanse by 'washing' the smoke over the person, object or space you are clearing. Each aromatic herb has its own unique fragrance and effect.
- Ignite the tip of you smudge stick with a match or candle.
- Gently wave stick until it begins to smolder. Focus you energy while you wash the smoke throughout your house, or over an object or person.
- Hold the stick over a fireproof container at all times to prevent burning from falling embers.
- When you are finished, carefully extinguish your stick. Safely pack away the stick for your next smudging session.
