The first recorded use of incense was by the Egyptians during the Fifth Dynasty, 2345-2494 BC. Incense use in religious ritual was possibly also simultaneously developed in China, and eventually transmitted to Korea, Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines and onward threat the globe. The formula and scent of incense used in temples, shrines, Churches, rituals and ceremonies throughout the world vary widely. However, the principal purpose seems to remain as the method of purifying the surroundings & enabling us to connect more closely to gods, afterlife, demons, & many other spiritual connections. Burning incense is an ancient natural art, used in ceremonies for thousands of years. Smells have a huge if often the subconscious effect on the psyche and natural incense smoke is no exception.

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 heatproof 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, it's your choice how you wish to use these things, no right or wrong.
