The purpose of smudging
Smudging is a cleansing ritual that dates back to the Native American Indian people, where herbs or tree barks would be burned and the person, animal or place bathed in the fragrant smoke. This ritual of cleansing and purification has lived on and been used by many different groups for the purification of virtually anything from bad spirits and demons or simply to remove negative energy and bring a fresh start to a place or person. As well as it's cleansing and purifying purposes, it can also be used to draw positive energies and even a carrier for prayers and intentions to a higher plane. The smudging ceremony involves burning the sacred plants (Sage in this case) and letting it smoulder to produce the fragrant smoke that is then wafted around the person or place using the feather to direct air to the embers. The shell is used to hold the burning sage to prevent stray embers and also acts as a heat proof dish to extinguish the sage. The subject and methods of smudging are so vast that we would advise you to do your own research and find a way of working that is good for you, like all areas of spiritual work we are not promoting any right or wrong way to go, that's your freedom of choice. Smudging is even used in simple good luck style rituals to bless new homes or bring Wealth,Healing, happiness and Prosperity to home, business or person, its your choice how you wish to use these things, no right or wrong.
