What Is Smudging?
Use smudging to clear energy for excellent day packages for couples
Question: I was told by a feng shui consultant that it is good to do some smudging in my house. From the little I know, smudging is not easy. What is smudging and what does it have to do with feng shui? Can I do something else for my house that works like smudging?
Answer: Yes, smudging a home is always a good idea. One can also smudge a person or an item. Many people are not comfortable with the idea of smudging, either because of the scent or because of the actual smudging procedure.
In order to know if smudging is something you would like to use in your home, let’s first have a look at what smudging is and what it actually does.
The term smudging is not a feng shui term. It comes from the Native American healing and shamanic traditions of working with energy. The most common herb used in smudging is the white sage; this is the scent most people associate with smudging. Sweatgrass and cedar have also been traditionally used in smudging ceremonies.
It is important to understand, though, that every culture has its own way of smudging – of using various herbs for clearing energy. So, to focus on the fact that feng shui (which originated in China) uses smudging (a Native American ceremony) is to miss the main point – the point of healing one’s being on all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual.
Feng shui in its essence is a deeply healing art because the main goal of feng shui is to strengthen human’s well-being.
Modern applications of traditional feng shui have embraced healing tools from many parts of the world. Smudging, or burning herbs for clearing negative energy, is one such tool that is often used in one’s home or even office (usually not during busy office hours, of course!)
Smudging originated from a deep understanding of the way the energy works.
Because energy is in constant motion, its positive and negative polarities can be easily guided with skillful tools and intent. Powerful herbs are one such tool.
In burning sacred herbs, the powerful energy of fire unleashes the potent healing energy of the plant to neutralize and purify any negative presence. This can be the negative energy in a place, such as a home, an office, or even a piece of land; or the negative energy surrounding a person, be it in thoughts, emotions, or actual manifestation as physical symptoms.
Smudging is usually done by lighting the tip of the smudge stick with a candle light, then gently waving it in the air till the tip begins to smolder. You can then guide the smoke coming from the smudge to specific parts of your house, or parts of your body. One needs a container for the smudge stick to keep the process safe.
If smudging does not appeal to you, look into other ways of purifying the energy of your house. Here are the most popular alternatives to smudging:
- Burning incenseis a similar way to work with the healing and purifying energies of fire and herbs combined. Compare Prices for Natural Incense
- Another way is to burn various resins, such as copal, myrrh, frankincense or piñon (you can buy these resins at most new age bookstores or on-line).

- Burn palo santo wood sticks. This is one of my favorite ways, in addition to white sage, cedar, and lavender. I found the aroma of this wood very powerful, as well as gentle and deeply invigorating. Compare Prices for Palo Santo Sticks
In feng shui, smudging is most often used as part of space clearing sessions, which you can have as often as every week (simple space clearing), or several times a year (major space clearing).

Smudging can sound a bit intimidating to many people. It can also look unsafe or too complicated to be practiced often. Rest assured this is not true. Smudging is not complicated, not hard and totally safe when you follow several very simple steps. What is important to accept, though, is that smudging is an ancient and sacred ceremony, so it is best to do it with full awareness and in a slow, mindful manner. As even the happiest homes accumulate in time negative vibrations, it is good to smudge your home thoroughly at least several times a year. You can also smudge your office space (not during busy office hours!); as well as use smudging to clear your own energy or the energy of other people.
I will give you simple instructions on how to do smudging, and then address the most common concerns with smudging a house. You will also find here instructions on how to smudge yourself (or somebody else), as well as various on-line sources for smudging supplies.
