Smudging is the act of cleansing yourself and your sacred space, your home, or even your workplace. Think of it as spiritual house cleaning.

 

While there are many different ways to smudge, most people tend to lean towards either sage (white sage) or Palo Santo to keep the good vibes going.

 

White Sage

 

Ancient Romans called sage a salvation plant (literally, salvare, meaning ‘to heal’); sage was also used in ancient Egyptian, Roman, and Greek medicines for its natural healing properties.

 

White sage has been used over the years by Indigenous peoples for cleansing, purification, warding off evil spirits, and dispelling negative energies. Often, burning white sage can bring forth wisdom and clarity as it increases your spiritual awareness.

 

Palo Santo

It has been used for many centuries by shamans for sanctification in ritual prayer, ceremonies, and healing. Palo Santo offers a grounded and clear energy while also enhancing creativity and bringing forth good fortune.

  • Clearing and rebooting energy in a room
