Some ideal (or necessary) times to smoke cleanse your aura and/or space would be:
PINON SMOKE CLEANSE
Smoke cleansing is a practice of burning herbs to embody different energies and cleanse the home of bad ones.
Listing includes: one ~ 3-4" Stick
- When you move into a new living space
- When you begin a new job or start your own business
- Before and after a guest enters your home
- Before and after a yoga or healing session
- Before meditation
- After an argument or any illness
- Upon returning home from crowded situations
How to Use Sticks
Holding the stick by the “handle” end, use a lighter to ignite the tip. Blow out any open flames so that the leaves slowly smolder. Next, wave the wand around a room, person, or objects to direct the fragrant, cleansing smoke. Catch the ashes in a heat-resistant dish. (An abalone shell is traditional, but you can use a pot, incense burner, or even a regular plate, as long as you put something under it.) Sticks can be extinguished in a dish of sand and re-used many times.
Pinon: The Piñon Pine is a generous evergreen tree from the foothills of the American Southwest. Piñon has a smooth, woodsy scent that's especially powerful, thanks to its high concentration of pine resin. Its energy is cleansing, healing, and strengthening. Oh, and it repels insects, too.
