Smudging is the practice of using the smoke from plant material to help cleanse and purify your space of negative energy.
The ritual comes from Indigenous healing and shamanic traditions of working with energy. It's a beautiful way to invite new, fresh, positive energy into your space.
The act of smudging usually involves burning sage/palo Santo/or other plant material. This gentle smoke ritual works to move along and clear out negative and/or stagnant energy that can become 'stuck' in our homes as well as our auras.
While it is important to treat this practice of smudging with respect, it does not need to be a complicated process.
