Energy is always flowing inside and outside of our home. People come over and bring their own energy. We go to work/school/activities and bring home other energies. Some of these energies are positive and some of these energies are negative. It's a good idea to smudge, or cleanse, our home of these negative energies.
What is smudging?
Smudging is burning herbs, most commonly sage, to get rid of negative energy on yourself, your home, or any space. Smudging can be useful when you're feeling depressed, angry, resentful, unwell, or after you have had an argument with someone or if you have felt a negative presence in your home.
To smudge, light the sage stick. Extinguish the fire and let the smoke billow from the stick. Walk around your home letting the smoke get everywhere, in every room, in cupboards and small spaces. The smoke is not dangerous and will not harm you or your pets. Use a bowl to catch any ashes.
Palo Santo (Bursera Graveolens) is a tree that grows on the coast of South America and Is related to frankincense, myrrh and copal. In Spanish, the name literally means "Holy Wood." It is part of the citrus family and has sweet notes of pine, mint, and lemon.
Once your palo santo smudge stick is lit, breathe deeply, stay connected, and guide the smoke toward the field surrounding your body, starting above your head. Continue swaying the smoke waves toward your body's energy, allowing the smoke to overtake every area of your surrounding field all the way down to your feet. Continue to smudge, or cleanse, your house along with your sage stick.
