Are an all-natural ceremonial incense traditionally burned in Native American rituals such as sweat lodges. Increasingly, doctors, therapists, and body workers are discovering the beneficial aspects of these herbs. Smudge Bundles are one of the means by which people around the globe are reconnecting with the power of Mother Earth.

Smudging, when done the right way, clears your mind and space of any negativity. It is a Native American tradition that has survived until now. Why? Because it is very effective. It is also a precursor to any ritual you want to perform.

To smudge is to be able to cross the barrier that separates us from the spiritual realm. It is also a means to communicate with the Divine. It opens up the blocked pathways to allow the Divine to work their magick through us.

 As effective as it is, it is easy to get it wrong. Having the wrong mindset (like not believing in it working) or being in the wrong mood, to not knowing how to burn the smudge sticks can spell a disappointing smudging session where you feel like it did not work. One telltale sign of the smudging not being effective is your feelings.

How to use:

  1. Start by taking a match and striking it against the box to create a fire.
  2. Holding the smudge stick in your free hand, let the fire catch hold for about 30 seconds.
  3. Dispose of the match stick.
  4. The herbs should start producing smoke now.
  5. With your other hand, hold the smudging bowl and purify yourself by fanning the smoke all over your body.
  6. Then, walk around the room you want to cleanse. Go from corner to corner and let the smoke fill the room.
  7. Do not for once drop your intention for smudging. Do not be distracted!
  8. Every time cinder forms, allow it to drop in the smudging bowl.
  9. Once you feel like you’ve sufficiently cleansed yourself and the place, extinguish fire of the smudge stick by stubbing it against the bottom of the bowl (although it is best to finish the whole stick.)
  10. Let the ashes cool and then put them back to the Earth. Give thanks to the Earth for the plants that you used.

Smudging the right way is to cross the barrier that separates us from the spiritual realm and successfully communicate with the Divine to let them work their magick through us.
