Setting your intention is the most important part of this ritual, so before you light up, ask yourself what you're trying to accomplish in your space and in yourself.Open window(s) and light the end of the sage bundle until it catches fire. After a few seconds of burning, blow it out so only smoke remains. Paint the air with the fragrant smoke moving from corner to corner. Allow the ash to collect in a fireproof holder and you can extinguish your smudge stick by dabbing the lit end into your holder. Each bundle can be relit several times.
