What is smudging?

DEFINITION: smoke created from burning medicinal or sacred plants

TRADITION: Smudging is a ceremony for purifying or cleansing the soul of negative thoughts of a person or place. There are four elements involved in a smudge:

  • The container, traditionally a shell representing water, is the first element.
  • The four sacred plants (cedar, sage, sweetgrass, tobacco), gifts from mother earth, represent the second element.
  • The fire produced from lighting the sacred plants represents the third element.
  • The smoke produced from the fire represents air, the fourth element

Smudging can also ease tension, lift your mood, and relieve stress.
