Cleanse Your Home of Negative Energy with Smudging

"Smudging is burning herbs most commonly Sage to get rid of negative energy on yourself, your home or any space. Smudging can be useful when you are feeling depressed, angry, resentful, unwell or after you have had an argument with someone or if you have felt a negative presence in your home or you feel there are unwanted spirits."

We smudge often in our home!

- At the onset of a cold or flu
- After the cold or flu
- After an Argument
- When negativity is sensed in the least
- To uplift the spirit or purify ones energy
- For protection before we leave for long periods of time
- Before I start a spell or ritual
- Sometimes just because I love the earthy aroma floating throughout our home
{and the list goes on...}

You do not have to be an expert at crafts to make one either...
I have made some out of dried lavender branches/leaves, dried rosemary, and sage as well. 
Simply gather a bundle of the dried herb(s) of your choice, even them out on both ends so they are all the same size, and tie a string around it!
Start by tying the string about an inch from the top (which ever end you wish to be the top),
and then wrap it around the bundle, moving slightly down with each wrap, until you have reached the bottom. Tie it off in a knot and then trim the excess.

Here is a great explanation on 'smudging' that I found~
