  • Smudging is a traditional Native American Indian method of burning herbs to produce a smoke cloud which is used in various cleansing or prayer ceremonies and purification or healing rituals. Cleansing rituals involving smudging often initiates healing sessions. The process of smudging enhances sensitivity and in some instances alters the state of consciousness enabling a Shaman, or Medicine Man, to assess and treat an illness. Smudging has an important place in Native American Spiritual Healing. The smoke is believed to disperse impurities allowing the healing process to commence. As the smoke rises, it is believed that prayers also rise to the Spirit World and negative thoughts and emotions are lifted away. Most of the herbs for smudging have antiseptic qualities and the process of burning herbs really does purify the air. Smudging rituals and ceremonies include rites of passage such as the Vision Quest and precursors to ceremonies such as the Sun Dance. The smudging rituals and ceremonies that involve healing are used in conjunction with various Native American Herbal Remedies.
