One of the ways we can utilize the cleansing power of fire is through the ancient practice of smudging.
🍀 Smudging is an Indigenous practice used to purify and clear the energy in your home and your auric field. Smudging is typically done using the smoke from a bundle of dried herbs such as sage, lavender, or rosemary.
The smoke from these plants harnesses the purifying properties of the fire and helps to carry away any intrusive or toxic energy from your home or your body.
So, here are tips for smudging yourself and your home:
✨ Choose a Herb - There are many different types of herbs, woods, and resins that you can use to clear energy. We have a wide selection of cleansing herbs to choose from! Check them out here.
✨ Set and Intention - Before smudging, you always want to set an intention or say a prayer to cleanse unwanted energies.
✨ Produce Smoke - Light the end of your smudge stick on fire for about 10 to 30 seconds to create a strong smoke.
✨ Cleanse Yourself - Smudge yourself by gently wafting the smoke over your entire auric field and each chakra.
✨ Clear Your Home - Waft the smoke throughout your home. Pay attention to corners, doorways, and small spaces.
