Smudging is used to remove or change the energy in your home or even in your aura. The first one I am going to talk about is your home/office, or maybe someone else’s home or office. Please make sure to be very careful if you are pregnant or have any allergies to any of the ingredients you use in smudging.

Make your smudging sticks or smudging formula…before you start, research plants you are going to use. Here are some questions to ask:
What do you want to accomplish?
What is your intention?
What do you need?
Pray for guidance?
Ask the plants permission,let the plants know what your intentions are.
The plants you are going to use make sure they are dry, with stems together,and keep them upright “don’t let the energy drain out”. Use cotton string to tie them,and bundle them together.
Identify the plants by their botanical name this way you will use the correct plant and the same plant. A word of caution please research the herbs/plants you are going to use make sure you know their properties/qualities, both positive and negative.
Please make sure you burn your smudging plants, charcoal, or candles,any type of fire in something that can handle it, will not burn with the product also will not give off toxic fumes.
I cannot say it enough Please use extra care if you are pregnant, this may not be the time to start smudging.
I would love to share this with you. Make it your ritual, have pure intent. Your intent can never be to harm or hurt anyone or anything, it must be pure loving intent.
If you feel negative energy, with love send it into the light and love of Mother Earth,or Universe.
I would also like to suggest to you take one herb/plant learn about it, use it with love and care. Ask people what herbs/plants they use, why they use them, what they are looking for, hoping for with using a certain herb/plant. Please becareful make sure when using the Internet your sources are reliable.
Items you will need to smudge;
A shell or bowl that you can burn in.
I use a stand my abalone shell can get hot.
Anyother herb/plant that you have chosen
Please enjoy smudging!
