Native American cultures use smudge sticks in spiritual ceremonies and to remove negative energies and spirits.
To use a smudge stick hold the tip over a burning candle for around 30 seconds then blow out any flame and fan the stick with a feather or smudge wave.
The following verse can be used for clearing negative energy:
Into the sage smoke I release all negativity that may surround me.
I release all fear that holds me back I release all energies that do not serve me Passing positive energy to those I cherish
