How to Smudge
Choose your smudge bundle (description below).
Get something to burn it on. That can be a plate, ashtray, shell, whatever—just make sure it's burn-proof.
Light a candle. When lighting a smudge stick, it may take 60-90 seconds to lite, so holding the smudge bundle above an open flame above a candle flame works best! Once the smudge bundle has a nice flame, blow it out, as it is the smoke you want.
If you're cleansing a room, simply walk around and wave the smoke into the corners, behind doors, and under beds. It doesn't take much; a few minutes ought to be enough for a basic cleansing. Make sure the smoke has an exit; crack a window or a door in each room.
Smudge sticks seem to die pretty quickly unless the bundle has been really well lit at the start. Once the smudging has finished. Let it burn out or pound it out into your smudging bowl.
