There are a few items you'll need to properly smudge. You can pick up these items online or most yoga shops. We love the smudge kit offered by Posh Candle Co. Check out the list below and let's get ready to clear some energy!
- Smudge Stick
- Fire Resistant Container
You are cleaning your space of unwanted energy so concentrate on just that. Breath deeply and focus your mind and breath on the task at hand.
Light your candle then use the candle flame to light your smudge stick. Gently wave the smudge stick back and forth until the flame is extinguished but the stick is still smoldering.
Begin waving the smoldering stick around the room in a clockwise direction, usually starting at the front door. Continue this process in every room needing a cleaning. Be careful not to miss the corners of the room!
When you've properly cleaned all of your spaces, press your smoldering smudge stick in a cup of sand to extinguish the flame. If you don't have any sand on hand you can also dip the tip of your smudge stick in a cup of water to ensure the flame is out. Place your smudge stick back in you fire resistant container of wrap it up and put it away until your next smudging sesh!
I use a vase to store my smudge stick. I can display it when not in use and it serves as a reminder to smudge regularly!
