Also, when sage is burned, it releases negative ions, which is linked to putting people into a positive mood. Smudging requires simple ingredients like matches, smudging herbs, and a smudging bowl. Before you start, remember to open a door or window, because the unwanted energy you are trying to clear must have a pathway to get out. First, light one end of your smudge, allowing it to catch fire and burn for several seconds. Then gently blow on the lit end - the smudge will begin to glow and smoke. Lay the smudge on a heatproof bowl to catch the ashes as it burns.
