- It may help relieve the symptoms of certain conditions. Burning sage may be a blessing for those with asthma, allergies, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions. But inhaling the smoke during the smudging can aggravate any respiratory condition. Wait until the smoke clears before going into the room.
- It can be a spiritual tool. Smudging has long been used to connect to the spiritual realm or enhance intuition.
- It may help dispel negative energy. Smudging may also be used as a ritual tool to rid yourself — or your space — of negativity. This may help you establish a positive environment for meditation or another practice.
- It can cleanse or empower specific objects. Burning sage creates fragrant smoke central to smudging’s benefits. You can use this incense to smudge yourself or specific spaces. Or according to some sources, you can smudge specific objects.
- It may help improve your mood. Tradition suggests that smudging can literally lift one’s spirits to banish negativity.
