Lighting Your Smudge Stick
Light the tip of your smudge stick. Allow a few seconds once it's lit, then blow out the flame, so it smolders. You do not want a flame, just a light smoke coming from it.
Smudging A Person
You can smudge yourself or another person by waving the smoldering stick from side to side, feet to head and from front to back of the body. You can also hold the stick and slowly spin around moving it from high to low so the smoke envelops the body whether for yourself or another person.
Smudging A Room
Open a window in each room you’re smudging. This will allow the negative energy and smoke a place to escape. Move clockwise around the edge, while waving the stick up and down near the walls, making sure to get into the corners of the room while thinking or saying positive things.
Extinguishing & Storing
Once your ceremony is completed, extinguish your smudge stick by rubbing it in the earth or placing the tip of it in some sand.
How Often To Smudge
Smudge your home whenever you feel the need. Some do it seasonally. It’s always a good idea to smudge anytime you feel negativity has entered your home.
