Hey Magical Ones! Today’s topic here at MagicallyBree.com is Smudging!
Smudging is an ancient act of burning herbs/resins with intention to cleanse, or other spiritual use. This was a ceremonial act of purification for the Native American rituals.
Should you smudge!?
YES!! Smudge your home, your body, your office (if you can, if not there are *other options…) AND there are a lot of options you can use for different purposes.
Sage- Most “popular”, you can buy these online and spiritual shops, I burn this when I come home from work mostly, also if there has been an argument or any general bad vibe. Often paired with Sweetgrass.
Flowers- Use these for love and glamour, esp Rose. Lavender is good for inspiring peace.
Palo Santo- This is translated “Holy Wood” it grows in South America and smells so good, it’s said to bring in blessings.
There are more options of course, you can even make your own smudge sticks!! I love burning dried rosemary.
How often to smudge…
This can be something like a ritual where you burn at a certain time/place everyday or just burn whenever you feel the need.
