What is smudging? It is the use of herbs like white sage, cedar, or sweet grass, in the practice of spiritual, mental and emotional consciousness and the setting of intention, or the acts of spirit in the physical. It is the use of smoke as a means of communicating and carrying the message beyond the physical plane.
