Smudging


The Evergreen Diary

Burning herbs for cleansing and purification is an important part of many religions and cultures with incense playing a role in many key ceremonies. Smudging your home does not need to be elaborate but I find it does help to clear the air, generally acts as ‘clean slate’ and is a nice process to go through. You can make your own ‘smudge stick’, dried sage, lavender and rosemary works well. Dry the leaves for a few weeks by hanging upside down in an area where the air can circulate, then tightly bind the dried herbs with string. You can also buy pre-prepared smudge sticks – usually white sage, relatively cheaply.
