The Art of Smudging

Smudging is an ancient art that has been practised by Native Americans for centuries. It’s a beautiful and sacred act of cleansing and purification by burning a bundle of herbs, often sage. ⠀

The smoke from the herbs is believed to create an energetic bath to clear negative energy for individuals, objects and living environment whilst welcoming positive energy back into your loving space. ⠀

What’s more, science also tells us that burning smudge sticks has the ability to cleanse surrounding harming bacteria in the air and can often relieve stress and tension. ⠀

Here are a few simple steps for your very own smudge bath -

⭐️ Make sure windows are open for ventilation and place the smudge stick onto a heat/fire proof surface before lighting it up. ⠀

⭐️ Fan the smoke with your hand or feather, directing the smoke over your body starting from your head to feet and all the way back up to your head. ⠀

⭐️ Visualise the smoke removing the negative energy from your body to enhance the cleansing effect. ⠀

Remember smudging is sacred in many communities and should always be done with respect, deep intention and gratitude. A gentle reminder to extinguish the smoke once you finished smudging gorgeous! ⠀
