Instructions for Smudging

 
Light the tip of your smudge stick and gently wave it in the air until the tip begins to smolder.
 
Using your hand or feather, spread the smoke in a clockwise direction, around the area, person or object you are smudging.
 
Quick, short, fanning movements break up blocked or stagnant energy. Long, flowing movements smooth out energy, creating a peaceful, balanced and harmonious energy flow. 
 
After smudging, extinguish the smudge stick in the sand, and save it for next time.
