— About Smudging —
“Smudging” is the common name given to a powerful energy cleansing technique from the Native American tradition; however, the burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification. It is a ceremonial way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies and bring in positivity. It is also an effective method for energizing or blessing a person, place or object.
Smudging can be useful when you’re feeling sad, angry, resentful, unwell or feel a negative energy around you. You can smudge your home or work space as part of a general spiritual house cleaning, and you can cleanse crystals or other object of any negative energy with the smudge wands.
— How to Smudge —
Consider your intention before you smudge and hold it clearly in your mind. Smudging should be done with care, with reverence and in an attitude of love.
A candle flame is recommended to light the smudge stick as it may take a little time to get the stick smoking. Once the stick is alight with flame, blow it out so that the smudge stick is smoldering, not burning.
Our high quality smudge sticks go a long way and can be used many times.
— Smudging yourself or another —
Fan the swirls of smoke around your body from head to toe. Focus on areas where you feel there are blockages or where there has been or is physical, emotional, or spiritual pain. Imagine the smoke lifting away all the negative thoughts, emotions and energies that have attached themselves to you.
