What is Smudging?
Smudging is traditionally a ceremony for purifying or cleansing the spirit of negative energy, or cleansing and blessing a home or space. This ceremony is comprised of burning sacred herbs or resins. Throughout history many different cultures have burned herbs and plants in their own sacred practices. Smudging in North America has widely been used by the Native peoples. Each herb or resin offers a specific purpose or intention. During a smudging session or ceremony, the intention is to connect to the energy and spirits around us to cleanse and manifest these benefits into our lives. Smudging can take many forms and there is a lot to explore. We have some helpful resources if you're just starting out or maybe just want some additional knowledge to incorporate into your own practice.
