Smudging for Positive Energy

Smudging is a way to energetically cleanse a space to invite positive energy. For centuries, Native American and Indigenous cultures have practiced smudging by burning plant resins and herbs in a shell or bowl as a ceremony to clear away negative energy and invite peace and harmony for an individual or environments. Smudging is a very powerful practice that can help clear away stagnant or unwanted energies in your home, in your heart, or your mind.
