Since ancient times, our ancestors have burned sacred herbs, using the sacred smoke to raise vibrations, dispel of negativity, and assist with spiritual work. Today, we know this process as smudging, and it remains a critical first step in any sacred ritual.

Intentions are central to smudging, so take a moment before you light your chosen herb to determine exactly what it is that you're trying to purify or release from your space. Then, decide on a mantra to repeat whilst smudging that will encapsulates your intention.
