After a function or party many people open windows to air out their homes and remove any fumes or odors. It is also very important to get rid of any unwanted or unknown energy (residual powder) that might be left behind

After I’ve completely smudged the inside of my home, I go to the main door. I go outside and smudge the door around the outside frame.  If you have more then one door that is frequently used, I suggest doing all entry points.  Once I have done the outside and I return inside, I put out the smudge stick.  It’s amazing how little you have to burn to create a new energy in your home.  If this is your first smudging attempt, I strongly recommend reading up on it first or ask someone who has done it many times.  As well, if your home has never been smudged or it has been a while, the smoke might be kind of thick.  Normally what I like to do is just let it dissipate into the atmosphere.  If you find the smoke too thick, open up a couple of windows to help clear the space.  Trust me, when you get into the routine of smudging your home once a month, the smoke won’t be as heavy.
