Burning sage creates fragrant smoke central to smudging’s benefits. You can use this incense to smudge yourself or specific spaces.
Smudging may also be used as a ritual tool to rid yourself — or your space — of negati
vity. This includes past traumas, bad experiences, or negative energies from others.
This may help you establish a positive environment for meditation or another ritual. Choosing to sit and let go of negative thoughts in a ritual like this sets your intention and dedication to self-improvement. Choosing to engage in ritual can be the beginning of your change in mindset.
