Smudging is a rite involving the burning of sacred herbs or resins. The ceremony is for spiritual cleansing or blessing. The substances used, can vary, from the most popular forms of sage and cedar to the wide range of herbs like lavender, rosemary, and others. Smudging can be used to energetically cleanse a space to invite positive energy. This may help you establish a positive environment for meditation. To sit and let go of negative thoughts in a ritual sets your intention to self-improvement.
Smudges also may help clear the air: scientists have observed that sage can clear up to 94 percent of airborne bacteria and disinfect the air. Also, when sage is burned, it releases negative ions, which is linked to putting people into a positive mood.
Smudging requires simple ingredients like matches, smudging herbs, and a smudging bowl. Before you start, remember to open a door or window. First, light one end of your smudge, allowing it to catch fire and burn for several seconds. Then gently blow on the lit end - the smudge will begin to glow and smoke. Lay the smudge on a heatproof bowl to catch the ashes as it burns. Before packing, the leaves were dried before they got sealed to keep them in good condition during their journey.
