How to burn a Smudge Stick: just light the tip, blow it out and either wave in air or place in a glass or other fireproof container (one that will not burn) with sand or salt placed therein to hold the smudge upright. If placing the stick in a bowl, you can use a feather to move the smoke around. Voice your intention as you move about the room or your home. For example, you can say, “By the powers of Earth, Air, Fire, Water I cleanse this space”. Remember to smudge in every corner, as negativity sometimes will gather there. To extinguish, invert smudge into the sand or salt to smother, and never under running water. To help your smudge stick last longer you can also break pieces off and place into a shell or other fire proof container and just burn them like that.
Caution: Never blow on the stick while smudging, as this could cause sparks to fly and cause a fire. Do not wear billowy, loose fitting clothing and keep windows closed while smudging. If gently waving your smudge stick room to room, always hold a fireproof container underneath.
