Smudging and Incense

What is Smudging?

Smudging and incense can be used to cleanse and purify spaces or objects. They can also be used to reinforce or create shields that will protect you from negativity and mal-intentioned magic.

Smudging is a Native American tradition and has a large role in Feng Shui. It involves burning herbs and other natural ingredients and using the smoke to fill and purify an area.

Smudging is an old tradition, so there is plenty of advice out there on how to perform it safely and effectively, such as by being attentive and slow with your movements.

Any space can be cleansed with smudging, be it your home, office, car or even your own body. The most common herbs for smudging are sage, Palo Santo, rosemary and lavender, and smudges can be pre-bought or made at home.

What do you need for Smudging?

You just need a smudge stick or the incense of a purifying herb like sage, Palo Santo, rosemary, lavender or any other herb you like. All you need is a lighter, but there are multiple optional tools that are often used in smudging too, such as feathers.

How do you Light Incense for Doing Witchcraft?

You light your incense with a strong intention. While doing so, visualize the light getting into the darkness and taking it over, cleansing the negative energy.

How do you put out Incense?

You can let your incense burn out completely. To return the ashes to the earth, either bury them or blow them into the wind.
