Smudge Stick There are many different plant materials you can use for smudging. Some common ones are: sage, cedar, sweet grass and lavender. My personal go-to is palo santo, a wood from South America. I find that it has a sweet, bright and minty energy thats perfect for everyday use.
One may also ask, do you open windows when smudging? Smudging can be used to clear negative energy from anything and can be done as often as needed. Its a real good idea to have a door or window open while smudging. The negative energy has to have someplace to go! If there isnt a door or window open the negativity isnt going to leave.
Similarly, what is the purpose of smudging?
Smudging. For centuries many cultures have used smudging as a way to create a cleansing smoke bath that is used to purify the body, aura, energy, ceremonial/ritual space or any other space and personal articles. Smudging is performed to remove negative energy as well as for centering and healing.
How often should you smudge?
After the smoke clears (One advanced tactic: mopping the floors with rose tea. Renters, proceed with caution.) Harrsen says most people should sage once a week. But like any kind of wellness practice, the more frequently you do it, the better.
