Definition of Smudging: What is Smudging? Smudging is a traditional Native American method of burning sacred herbs to produce a smoke cloud which is used in various cleansing or prayer ceremonies and purification or healing rituals. During the Smudging ceremonies and rituals the smoke may be fanned over the person by the Shaman, Medicine Man or healer either using the hand, feathers or a fan. Smudging is the ritual cleansing of the mind, body and spirit. The above picture depicts a Medicine Man with his smudging fans. Originally the herbs were placed in special herb bowls and burned. The dried herbs were then tied into easily portable bundles called 'Smudge sticks' and were included in the contents ofMedicine Bags. The Smudge Sticks used in Native American smudging rituals include herbs such as Indian tobacco, sweetgrass, sage and cedar (often referred to as Juniper).
