When people want to clean negative energy from home, they typically use an ancient herb called white sage, yet there are other herbs that can be used, depending on the country and culture. Select an herb that is known for space cleansing and its abilities dispel negative vibrations.
The herb must be dried so you can easily light it and then blow it out, or let the flame burn down so it’s smoldering and giving off enough smoke.
Once smoking nicely, you walk with it around your house either holding a smudge stick (the herbs tied together in a bunch) or loose sage herb in a bowl.
You can choose to hold a feather or item that helps you to wave the smoke around the space that you’re clearing.
White sage has been used by Native American Indians for a long time and it seems to be their herb of choice for clearing bad energy.
I also use this herb intuitively it feels cleansing and calming. In Australia (where I live), the aboriginal cultures use different types of ‘eucalypt’ and other leaves to do what they call a ‘smoking’, which is similar to the smudging, to cleanse and heal a space, a person or an area.
These different plants have different healing qualities. The natural thing to do is to connect to the dried herb and ask the spirit of the plant to help cleanse the person or area. Read more
