Smudging is an ancient art that is believed to have been practiced by Native Americans for centuries. It’s the name given to the ceremonial, daily act of cleansing and purification which uses a selection of herbs or sage
The smoke that’s emitted from the bundle helps to cleanse negative energy and purify living spaces, as well as people and even objects like tools, furniture, and home decor. It also releases negative ions, just as created by the effects of sunlight and water – a sense of calm when in nature, visiting a beach, waterfall or enjoying a walk in the rainforest which leads to a more positive mood and many other health benefits 🌳
In high enough concentrations, negative ions can clear the air of mold spores, pollen, pet dander, odors, cigarette smoke, bacteria, viruses, dust and other hazardous airborne particles.
As the sense of smell is strongly linked to memory and instinct, smudging is very effective for combating feels of anger, fear, anxiety, grief and depression. It also normalises serotonin levels which can improve focus, create a more positive outlook and improve sleep patterns! - 1 day ago
