Smudging Safely: (please read)
- Make sure the area you are smudging is well ventilated. This is a health precaution, as well as a spiritually practical one as well, as the negative energy will need an "escape route".
- Smoke from herbs can lead to allergic reactions or trigger asthma or other forms of respiratory distress in sensitive persons.
- Do not use near infants or very young children or people with respiratory problems such as asthma.
- Do not begin using smudge if you are pregnant.
- Lighting herbs will leave you with embers. Use a heatproof container to catch them. Lots of people use abalone shells, but you could even use a pyrex bowl. That’s up to you.
- Never leave burning smudge unattended.
- Place some sand or soil or even salt in the bottom of the container to provide insulation as otherwise the container could scorch a surface it is placed upon.
