Smudging is a powerful cleansing technique used by indigenous people for thousands of years in order to remove negativity and invoke positive energy. Use smudge sticks to cleanse a space, person, object or your own mind, body and spirit. The smudging ceremony involves the burning of special, sacred plants. Then, either passing an object through the resulting smoke or fanning the smoke around a person or place. It is said that the spirit of the plant then purifies whatever is being smudged.
