January 25, 2024

With the chaotic nature of today’s modern world, the idea of cleansing our spaces, objects, and ourselves of negative energy sounds quite appealing. Cue the ritual of sage burning, also known as smudging, an essential part of many Native American cultures.

What is smudging?

Smudging is a tradition common to the Indigenous peoples that involves burning sacred herbs such as sage to cleanse a space, object, or ourselves of negative energy.

Materials you’ll need to smudge respectfully

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • A vessel for burning sage
  • Sage or a sage spray
  • A fire source (such as a long match or candle)
  • A fanning tool (not completely necessary but could be helpful if you need to cover a large area such as a home or office)
