Smudging is one of my favorite of clearing crystals and stones. This technique has been used for thousands of years. It was initially used by Native Americans, in ancient Rome, Greece and ancient Egypt as a way to cleans a space from bad spirits and negative energy.
Smudging is burning herbs to get rid of negative energy on yourself, your home, crystals and stones or any space. It is very useful when feeling depressed, angry, resentful, unwell or after you have had an argument with someone or if you have felt a negative presence or bad vibes in your home.
To smudge your crystals, pass your stone several times through the smoke of your choice of sage or incense. Light your smudging material, fan the smudge gently with your hand or feather to smolder and give off smoke. Ask or say a small prayer to help clear the energy of the crystals to be cleansed for the highest good of all concerned. Pass the crystal through the smoke about seven times or brush the smoke over the crystal the same number of times. This is to be done for each crystal you wish to smudge clear of unwanted energies.
