Smudging and Cleansing

A ''Smudge Stick' is a bundle of dried herbs, usually White Sage but other herbs or plants can be added or used on their own, the leaves are usually bound                        with string in a small bundle and dried. All herbs and plants used in a Smudge Stick have a strong, pleasant aroma when burnt.

Using Natural Scented Smoke in rites of Purification of the body, as well as the Home, Workplace or Healing Space, whether through traditional Smudging (the process of using a smudge stick) or burns Incense.
Many Indigenous cultures throughout the world still burn Herbs, Plants and Resins to accomplish the same purpose today. Smudging with White Sage, has been adopted in some variant forms into several modern belief systems, including many forms of New Age and Eclectic Neopagan Spirituality , such as modern Wicca. In Ancient Rome, buildings called "Purgatoriums " were used for the Cleansing Rituals. These smoke and heat filled structures were considered sacred spaces in which the Spirits or Gods lifted negative entities and energies from an individual without interference with others.

In North America, the three native herbs most commonly used for Smudging are White Sage, Cedar, Sweetgrass and others. Blended Smudge bundles can add variety to your Smudging, Cedar has long been used by Native Americans for Ceremonial and Medicinal Uses and is one of the herbs which can be used in a Smudge bundle, Sweetgrass is often braided and dried to create long strands which can be burnt.
In most Aboriginal traditions, a Sweat Lodge is used which is basically a tent or tepee are filled with smoke and heat, it is used as a building within which a sick person can be treated to aid many Physical and Mental conditions.

In some cultures the smoke is taken into one's hands and rubbed over the body to blacken it. This is where the modern day practice got its name "SMUDGING ". Blessings and Prayers for Protection, Purification are said during a cleansing.

Smoke is a great tool for Cleansing Negative Energies Areas ~ there is one that we collect on our aura, and the ones that are being collected like Energetic Dust in many different places in our environment. From time to time, you should use an incense to cleanse your own aura, and once a month, you should burn an incense in your room (or entire house) to cleanse it from negative energies.
