What is smudging?

Smudging is the practice of burning incense; an ancient spiritual ritual and a ceremonial act that has been around for centuries as part of numerous religious traditions. Incense is derived from the Latin word for "burn". It is made of plant-based aromatic materials and is used for spiritual cleansing, blessing and purifying. Burning incense encourages relaxation, aids sleep, promotes concentration, stimulates creativity, increases motivation and reduces stress and anxiety.

Here are some features of the herbs we use to make incense.

Burning Lavender enables spiritual and physical cleansing, psychic protection, stress relief, enhanced focus and reduced allergic reactions in people.

How to use your smudge stick?

Burning instructions:

  • Smudging allows for major space cleansing. As the smoke ascends, our wishes and intentions rise and mingle into the universe, connecting heaven, earth and humanity. 

  • You can choose a fireproof container such as a bowl of ceramic, seashell, glass, plate or clay. Make sure that your container is fireproof.

  • Light the smudge stick from the top end and walk clockwise around the house ending back where you started. It is better to open a window or be in an open space. You can burn the smudge stick for as long as you wish.

  • Make sure that your smudge stick is completely extinguished. You can do this by dabbing the lit end into a small bowl of ash or sand. 

  • Check the end closely to make sure there are no more embers burning. Once the smudge stick is completely put out, store it in a safe, dry place away from the sun.

  • Keep out of reach of children, pets and flammable material. 


Happy Smudging!
