Smudging or other rites involving the burning of sacred herbs or resins, is a ceremony or ritual practiced by some Indigenous peoples of the Americas. In some cases the ceremony is for spiritual cleansing or blessing, but the purposes and particulars of the ceremonies, and the substances used, can vary widely between tribes, bands and nations. While several well-known cultures may use forms of sage (for example, common sage or white sage and cedar that is local to their region, the use of sage is neither universal, nor as widespread as was once commonly believed. It is used very commonly by New age practitioners and the Wiccan community for their rituals and practices but was not found to be a traditional practice of European heritage.
Not all Native American or (FNIM) cultures that burn herbs or resins for ceremony call this practice “smudging.” While using scent and scented smoke (such as incense) in religious and spiritual Ritesis an element common to many different cultures worldwide, the details, reasons, desired effects, and spiritual meanings are usually unique to the specific cultures in question.
