Smudging is a spiritual purification process that can be thought of as a cleansing smoke bath. To use your smudge, lighting the bundle from a candle, gently blowing out the flame and placing it safely in a fireproof dish or shell. Bring it to all of the corners of the room or space you are purifying, pay special attention to windows, doors, and closets. It can smoulder until it goes out, or it can be dowsed with water until it is out. If dowsed, or dipped in water, allow to dry and it is ready to use again.
Pinon is a natural companion to sage and can be used in its place. It also repels bugs!
