Smudging is an ancient powerful ritual for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification. The smoke from smudging attaches itself to negative energy and as the smoke clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space where it will be regenerated into positive energy. White sage is the popular “go to” for simple and powerful clearing. Sage is well known to have the healing properties of sage to drive out negative energy and evil spirits. The sage plant is burned, and the smoke is directed into areas that are in need of blessing for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification.
