Incense For Good Energy
It’s a good idea to once in a while clear your house. This is very important after a large gathering, a death in the family, a visit from an unwanted guest, a quarrel, or once a year during spring housecleaning.
To clear your entire house, smudge each room with sage smudging sticks or smolder incense in each room with a window open. The bad energy will go outside, where it dissipates.
Native Americans used smudging herbs to remove bad energy fields around people.
In ancient Greece, smudging formed part of the rituals to contact the dead, following long periods of fasting and silence. Their sacred smoke was born out of sulphur and minerals in lieu of herbs to part the veil between the worlds of the living and form a bridge to the other world.
