WHAT IS SMUDGING?
Many native Indian tribes of the US and Canada traditionally perform a purification ritual known as 'smudging' to clear the atmosphere of negative vibrations and fill the environment with positive, uplifting energies. Smudge Sticks are typically bundled wands made of bound herbs such as White Sage or Sweetgrass, used for smudging purposes - though other herbs and botanicals such as Palo Santo wood and Cedar leaves have also been used for this purpose.
SAGE has been traditionally used to purify the mind, body and spirit before praying, to cleanse the atmosphere and disperse negativity - sage is believed by many to be a masculine plant that can reduce or eliminate negative energy; some place sage at doorways for protection against evil. Today, it can be used to purify homes, offices or other spaces; the smell of sage will remind you of the desert and the sacredness of life. CEDAR is said to be the first tree that was created; it is believed to offer protection and attract positive energy - cedar can be placed at entrances to a home, or for extra grounding may be placed inside shoes for daily wear.
To use, remove the yarn binding the stick and place it in a heatproof dish or abalone shell filled with sand or ashes, to keep it upright. Light the tip of the bundle on fire until the Smudge Stick catches, then blow out the flame to allow the herbs to smoulder and smoke, sending sweet fragrant smoke into the air. To extinguish, invert into the sand until the embers are out. Never leave a lit smudge stick unattended.
