    How to prepare for ‘Smudging’:

    Before you begin burning the Sage or Palo Santo, set your intentions. These can be related to a spiritual practice, something you are trying to release or simply asking to cleanse the space.

    You should also open the windows before you begin, this will allow the smoke to escape, the smoke will carry impurities and negative energy out with it. Do not burn sage without allowing the smoke to flow out through open windows.

    Consider where the fire alarms are before you start to avoid setting them off.

    How to Smudge:

    • Light the ends of the stick, quickly blow out the flames until you just have smoke.
    • Be sure to hold a ceramic bowl or dish with you to catch any ash that may fall off the smudge stick as you are burning it.
    • Direct the smoke around the area you wish to cleanse, this may be your body, your living space, an object, or crystals.
    • Speak your intentions as you cleanse.
    • When you are finished dab out the ends into the bowl or dish or you can wet the ends of the stick to bring the smoke to a stop.
    • Store your smudge stick in a cool dry place away from the sun.
