Smudging is a Native American ritual for spiritual cleansing and blessing. The smoke from the burning Sage cleanses all energy, good and bad, from people, objects, and places. Sage smoke also boosts in-home health by removing 94% of airborne bacteria.
Before lighting your Sage, clear your space of any excess clutter. Open all windows, closets, and doors to allow the smoke to carry all energy out of your space. Now you are ready to smudge!
Ignite your Sage with a candle, match, or lighter. Allow it to burn for 30-60 seconds and then blow it out. waft the smoke throughout your space. It is best to start with the corners and mirrors in a space. Pay special attention to hallways, doorways, and windows. When you’re finished smudging, be sure to snuff the end of the Sage thoroughly and place on fire safe surface.
