Smudging is a way of using plants to make beneficial smoke. For thousands of years cultures around the world have used smoke to purify, protect, and bless themselves and their surroundings. Originally, herbs and resins were burned in a fire or placed in a special bowl and allowed to smolder.
Smudge sticks, bundles of dried herbs and flowers tied together with colored thread, are more portable. They can be used for clearing space, healing, recovery from emotional upset, or simply to clean the air that surrounds you. They can be quite simple or made very beautiful with the use of colorful flowers
You connect with your sacred plants when you make your own smudge sticks, which can make rituals and ceremonies even more meaningful. You can control the quality of the herbs you choose, using medicinal and ceremonial plants that suit your specific needs.
In our class, we’ll learn which plants to use in your smudge to address particular needs. We’ll make two different kinds of smudge sticks and then learn methods to use them to smudge yourself and your space.
