Smudging has been used as a spiritual cleansing method for thousands of years; it got its name from the indigenous American ritual known as the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing! The smudging ritual calls on the spirits of sacred plants to drive away negative energy and restore balance.
Is Smudging Effective?
The simple answer is yes your body and the spaces around you vibrate with an invisible energy flow that can be affected by outside energies, both physical and spiritual. Smudging allows you to clear any unwanted stagnant, even negative energy away. It purifies and cleanses your space, strengthens your intuition, is uplifting, and will help you focus.
The best thing about smudging is there isn’t a right or wrong way to smudge your home or the space you are occupying. For example, you could invent your smudging ritual, making it as spiritual or straightforward as you like, while still getting the benefits.
What Do You Need?
You will need to use Smudge Sticks. These are bundles of herbs that are bound together using twine.
Sage is probably the most common herb used for smudging. It is associated with purity and has a beautiful aroma that will linger in your home once you have finished your ritual.
Sage has antimicrobial properties and is said to clear away negative energy and keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay.
You can make your own sage smudge sticks if you have the time, know what you are doing, or better still, purchase them from stores like SmudgeSticks.co.uk, where you are guaranteed 100% natural hand-rolled organic smudging sticks that are free of synthetics, animal substances, and heavy carrier agents.
