Smudging or smoking is used to cleanse spaces or people of unwanted energies.
Suggested uses: To cleanse a new house or apartment, to smoke a room which feels stale or where someone has been or is sick, for ceremony or circle work
Method: Light the smudge stick with a match or lighter until the end is glowing and smoking. Waft the stick around the space or the person, asking for the space to be cleared of unwanted energies. If smudge goes out, simply re-light it. When finished the smudge stick can be ‘stubbed out’ and used again. A feather can also be used to waft the smoke around the place.
CAUTION: As smudging involves burning material, care should be taken.
