Natural incense for smudging rituals
Smudging is a mindfulness practice that increases awareness and spirituality. It enhances concentration, harmony and balances the energy that surrounds us. The cleansing ritual can also be performed when we want to free ourselves from unfavorable situations or emotions that currently accompany us. Carrying out such a ritual can become a sign for us that a given stage (for example worrying or uncertainty) is behind us and it is time to move on. Smudging, or cleansing, our space with dried plants affects not only the space itself, but also directly us, cleansing our aura.
