Smudging is one of the ways to energetically cleanse a space to invite positive energy. When smudging a space, you burn plant material. The smoke fills and purifies the environment. As the smoke ascends, our wishes and intentions rise and mingle into the universe, connecting heaven, earth and humanity. Start by taking a match and striking it against the box to create a fire. Holding the smudge stick in your free hand, let the fire catch hold for about 30 seconds. With your other hand, hold the smudging bowl and purify yourself by fanning the smoke all over your body. Then, walk around the room you want to cleanse. Light the end of a sage bundle with a match. Blow out quickly if it catches on fire.
The tips of the leaves should smolder slowly, releasing thick smoke.
Allow the incense to linger on the areas of your body or surroundings you’d like to focus on.
Allow the ash to collect in a ceramic bowl or shell.
