Many Native American nations have traditionally burned certain herbs for ceremonial cleansing purposes.

One of the ways they do this is to burn smudge sticks which are bundles of herbs bound together with cotton.

The art of burning fragrant herbs is practised around the globe either in ceremony

or purely for fragrancing and clearing the air (smoke cleansing).


A smudge stick once lit will burn slowly releasing a fragrant smoke that can be used to cleanse meditation spaces, holistic therapy rooms or your general dwelling space and are often used as part of Feng Shui.

Smudging with a smudge stick may be used to bless a new home or workspace, to remove old stale energy and welcome in fresh new vibes. And you can most definitely use smudge sticks to cleanse yourself and others which is a great way to start group work.


Each smudging herb has its own property and brings in a different energy. The most popular herbs for smudge sticks are white sage, blue sage, cedar and yerba santa…....there are many others. They can even be combined to achieve a stronger smudging effect.
