The Science of Smudging: The Ancient Art of Burning Medicinal Herbs for Air Purification
#DIDYouKnow that burning medicinal herbs such as sage for one hour in a closed room actually kills 94% of aerial bacteria AND can be maintained for up to 24 hours?
My wellness mama (Wisteria, founder & creator of Needful Things Natural Home & Bodycare) first introduced me to the practice of “smudging.”
The Journal of Ethnopharmacology published a scientific paper which states that with “...using medicinal smoke it is possible to completely eliminate diverse plant and human pathogenic bacteria of the air within confined space.”
Incense is mentioned 194 times in the Bible. It’s so cool that God has given us everything we need here on Earth to care for ourselves; ancient healing wisdom frequently leads the way.
Besides burning sage, which also has medicinal properties, one of my favorite kinds of incense is Fred Soll’s Ancient Blend Frankincense and Myrrh.
Do you use incense or smudging herbs to clear the air in your home? What are your favorites to use?
